A hospital will also have an ER (which stands for Emergency Room). A person will go to the ER if they are in an emergency situation and cannot wait to see a doctor. Patients will get treated right away and the ER doctors will determine a course of action right away. The word "emergency" is a noun meaning a situation that is urgent and requires immediate attention. An emergency situation is usually unexpected and sudden.
I've gone to the hospital numerous times in my life, whether for minor illness such as a cough to more major issues like stitches on my chin. Being at a hospital gives me major anxiety. I hate seeing people in pain and I really don't like the sight of blood or needles. However, medical vocabularies are still very important. Below are just some common words you might come across at a hospital.
