The emergency room did not treat my puncture wound. They just looked at it. They gave me a tetanus shot and send me home. That shot cost me almost $1,000 -- well not me my insurance carrier. Something is very wrong when you have to go to a health department location to get a tetanus shot or pay almost $1,000.
I just called the health department they charge $55 and it is at least a 45 minute wait they said (don't know if I trust that). It would also have taken me about an hour and half (round trip) to get there - not in traffic. I think I made the right choice for me -- not for our economy. Yes, I am selfish sometimes too.
