- Jan 14 by sharpeimomI made a quick ER trip with an elderly aunt. We checked in and the very very British triage nurse processed my aunt quickly. We were taken to a room and when the doc came in, he was laughing. He showed me a note the triage nurse had made. My aunt's first name was Evelyn, which is a feminine name in the USA but a male one in GB. The note? "While patient seems to be a woman of approximately her stated age, why does s/he have that name?
- Jan 14 by GinagateThere's a guy who comes into my ED almost every night with random complaints most recently he was suffering from "salted food made me itchy" the triage note simply said "salt"

"Bloody pens" meant "bloody penis"
- Jan 15 by thelema13Quote from N1colinaHonest to God, had a 3 month old brought in by the name of Toiletta, because the mother ended up birthing her into a toilet. People in Florida........Okay, this is not a complaint but this thread reminded me of it and had to share:
There was a mother that named her baby, "Dinasty" pronounced like the word, "Dynasty" but the reason she named her kid that was "because we was doin da nasty when we made her" cracks me up every time!!
- Jan 15 by uRNmywayGod, do people not think of their kids and how people will be to them when they grow up? How mean will kids be in school with a kid called Toiletta? Or how seriously will prospective employers take someone with that name...ugh...
- Jan 24 by Christy1019Quote from sandyfeetHaven't read these all yet so sorry if this was addressed already, but I'm thinking that they meant bright red blood when they said brb lolI'm a victim of the "text generation". Last week at work I saw a chief of "brb vomit" and all I could think of was "be right back vomit"! Which kind of made sense in it's own weird way!
