DH: Random Happenstance

It's time for another exciting round...

...of Tay asks Americans questions! *canned applause*

Could some kindly Yank on my flist (or two or three even) describe how a visit to the ER would go in the States? It's for fic and I know the Canadian health system works a bit differently (for nowish at least) than the American one. As a guideline for what I'm looking for, I've written out how it would likely go down in my local ER. I'm happy with anything from an outline to a more detailed account and I'm looking for info on walk-in cases, not someone who's arrived by ambulance.
