I'll point out that we are only hearing one side of the story. As far as I know, the doctor and clinic have not made a comment (which is not unusual due to HIPAA laws).
There is also potentially important information that is being left out. The doctor and practice were "outed" on Facebook by an anti-vaccine page and it turns out that it appears that the urgent care clinic is for after hours and weekends. She went on a Thursday morning. During the weekdays, the clinic functions as a regular pediatrician's office. This likely explains why they told the mother to come back after 5 pm according to her own account.
I am not entitled to walk into some random pediatrician's office with my child who is not even a patient, who may or may not have a broken bone (unless it is sticking out of the skin, that is not considered a true life-threatening emergency) and demand that they see and treat him. It just doesn't work like that. The ER is and was there at her disposal if she felt it was a true emergency that couldn't wait.
