In pain and finally a nurse gave him a muscle relaxer and encouraged him to stay since he just wanted to leave. He said it is the worst hospital experience ever.

Xray, pee and COVID test..An injury to the side at work should not take 10+ hours to handle. All comments I have read sound like the same experience as this one. No fast track that I can see.
