So far, I haven’t been the luckiest person ever living in Denmark healthwise. I have had to visit my regular doctor, the out-of-hours doctor, the dentist. On Sunday it was the turn of the accidents and emergency department, or skadestue (as it is known in Danish).
On arriving at hospital I was surprised that there were only two guys in the waiting room – clearly waiting for a friend who was being treated. This was my first time in any emergency department, but I always thought they would be super busy. I guess having the possibility to get an appointment in the building next door at the out-of-hour doctor means that people do not clog up the emergency room unneccessarily.
On arriving, you are instructed to ring a bell and wait in a waiting room. We only had to wait for around 15 minutes for us to be called in. We were in and out within 30 minutes I think, which is superb service.
My only complaint? The nurse burst out laughing when we said why we were there. Do I blame her though? Absolutely not! Michael had to explain that he dropped a big knife on my big toe while looking extremely sheepish about it!

30mins in and out…that must be impressive…Sometimes it takes longer to be seen by people you have an appointment with 🙂
But at least you must have made her day 🙂 (and probbaly all her friends’ day haha)
I came to think of an episode of Friends, of why Chandler was missing his “pinky”… 🙂
Luckily my toe is still properly stuck on…Phew! Cannot imagine the pain if it was completely severed.
