This could certainly be popular and something that might spread as to why wait at the ER room if you can reserve a spot.  If you are not seen within 15 minutes of your appointment time, then you get your $15.00 back.

The service is called InQuickER and it is done online.  You can’t schedule days in advance though as it is limited to 90 minutes to 2 hours ahead of an arrival time, still pretty good.  This is being done to cut down on over crowding at the ER room.

 

This is a service that is actually available for any hospital to sign up for and if you choose another location you can see the hospitals listed for each state.  I checked and found 2 other hospitals in my area that are doing it was well in Orange County.  I’ll have to remember this in case I ever need to make use of it.  BD
