Seriously Expensive Boo Boo

A guy in New Jersey went to the media recently when he visited an emergency room in Bayonne, New Jersey with a cut finger – basically, a boo boo – and came away with a bill totaling more than $8,000.
Yes, $8,000 for sterilization of the wound, a tetanus shot, some antibiotic cream, some bandages and a splint.
You can get most of those items at your local drugstore for about $50. Which makes that tetanus shot awfully pricey.
Good to see we’ve got health care in America under control!
