At Maimonides, a visit to the ER for the purpose of suture removal is  
considered a regular ER visit:
Triage plus VS, followed by a doctor's evaluation of the healing wound,  
questions about health issues related to the laceration (e.g.with  head  trauma), 
suture/staple removal under supervision of the attending, and billing  (low 
complexity) for the procedure (suture removal) and an ER visit.
Yes, it does take time....
