Do you think ERs are being abused more often these days?
I don't mean for pills and what not, I'm talking about people with non-emergency situations crowding up the ERs instead of utilizing urgent care centers or waiting until the doctor opens on Monday.

Yes, especially by pregnant women who want immediate ultrasounds.

Sometimes, but people's perspectives of emergency situations differ.

We don't have an urgent care so the hospital is all that's here besides that doctor. I feel like every time I go to the ER there is a few drunks in there pretty much just whining. I try not to go unless it's something serious.

Some people are only able to get care that way. Not everyone has access to the means to see a physician as needed. So they take the only route available to them, the ER.

This!
I've only been twice since becoming pregnant.
Once because I fell, the second for evaluation of preterm labor. I didn't receive an ultrasounds either time, nor did I ask for one. Popple need to leave the er open for those who need it.

Yes but I also think that people feel like it's an emergency when it's not.
