I gots the triage blues

  1. Last night in triage
    everyone waiting 3 and 4 hours
    all were upset
    and getting red white and blues

    along game a guy
    a girl in tow
    some blood seen in her beautifull blonde hair
    and anger in his eyes

    He yells through the window
    shes bleeding shes bleeding
    I take a quick look
    small lac to scalp and no LOC noted

    I say please sign in
    and please take a seat
    But she is bleeding he yells
    I see that sir. please take a seat

    he holds up his hand
    and shows me his ring
    yelling do you know
    who I am

    No sir I dont know you
    Your ring is from Texas A and M
    so your aggie
    is that what you mean sir

    Just then in through the front doors
    Comes in the local police
    seems the aggie
    had broken several traffic laws
    in getting to the ER

    The officer says
    well Tom
    does this case warrant him
    driving at 80 miles an hour

    No I replied
    thank you says the officer
    to the aggie he says
    Sir will you step over here please.

    I go and fully triage and assess the young lady
    I fell while" WE " were in the shower
    how old are you young lady
    Im 16 years old she replied

    The officer hearing this
    looks at the aggie
    " Sir before you say anything else,
    I need to read you your rights"

    The aggie yells
    as I am bandaging her head
    "but her brains "
    may be leaking out.

    The officer takes
    the aggie outside
    I ask the young lady
    May I call your parents
    I need their consent to treat you

    She talks to her parents
    and hands me the phone
    my ear gets blistered
    but they are on their way

    I get her to the back rapidly
    so they can deal with her parents
    As I lead her to a room
    The officers cuff and stuff the aggie

    She is 16
    he is 26
    seems to be a problem
    here in the land of Texas

    the Moral of the story

    Damn I see another subpoena coming my way.

    Some nights I really hate triage

    Tom....just think of how you did what was best for your patient! I haven't been there so I don't have any good words of wisdom, but I think you are great for handling it so well!

    Only Thing Famous about Aggies are the jokes about them

    But they Take their little class rings and wear them proudly

    Oh OK, I thought maybe it was a super bowl ring or something, it could have been Troy Aikman. LOLOLOLOL :chuckle :chuckle :chuckle


    I had a patient not too long ago with the biggest old ring on his finger, and when I looked closer it was a World Series Ring!!! I was duly impressed, but he was a really nice guy......

    Your story is better though. Good for you!

    You know, I never thought about it--always assumed it was before, based on the 'STAT" part.....
