How Accurate Are ER Doctors?

Ever wonder how you can create a specialty that takes care of everyone.  And I mean EVERYONE! From one day old to 120 years old.  Then create a building to house them and then mandate access to their care 24 hours a day seven days a week and then demand that they diagnosis and treat and manage every possible medical, nonmedical and social condition known to man.  Oh yeah, and  get it right every time while communicating with pissed off doctors all day long? That's a lot of pressure. I have no idea how accurate ER doctors are in their diagnostic evaluations. But I do know one thing. They are 100% accurate in their ability to point out patients who are Too Old To Go Home.  Great job guys! It takes a special breed to be an ER doctor. I mean, come on. What other specialty gets to manage pseudo seizures AND do  pelvic exams in the same day and do it without crying.  This ER ecard helps explain.

"You know you're an ER doctor when Too Old To Go Home is the most accurate diagnosis you've made all day."
