Time to look up definition of 'emergency'

In the mail the other day, I received a postcard from our local “not for profit” health care provider, suggesting I can wait at home for my emergency room (ER) visit.

All I need to do is log on to their web site, select a projected treatment time, and then wait.

Really, what am I missing here?

The only thing I can think of is that an “emergency” isn’t what it used to be.
