Sometimes, when you go to the emergency room, it seems like everyone decided to get severely injured or deathly ill at the same exact time. Don't you wish you could somehow avoid the long wait? Well, it just so happens that — ugh, we can't bring ourselves to say it.
On its website, Inova Health Systems lists waiting times for nine emergency rooms in Northern Virginia. Even more convenient, though, is its iPhone app, which also shows you the nearest emergency rooms. (The second-class citizens known as Android and Blackberry users can expect an application to come out this fall.)
Right now, the shortest wait is seven minutes, at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital. The longest wait is 16 minutes, at Inova Fairfax. So if you're going to have a heart attack this week, you may as well have it right now.
