Question Running out of Time during closure?

Hi.. Had a question related to the Closure in the CS. If you are half way through the closure, and run out of time, do you lose the case entirely? Please let me know! Thank you all and good luck studying

The exam is all about acting. If you were to run out of time you could act as though you are getting an urgent call and have to rush.. Apologize and assure that you will be back soon..!

I am sorry Mr/Ms X, I just got paged for an emergency. I have to attend to it and I will be back as soon as possible.

(if a few more secs remain, you can say)
Do you have any questions or concerns?

If they say yes, say "Thanks, I'll be sure to address that once I return".
Shake hand and walk away.

What if the pt has come to the ER and their case is also an emergency (ex:ruptured appendicitis, motor vehicle accident,etc etc)? What will you say to these patients if the 15 mins is up?
