    Yesterday must have been "Dementia Day". I have never seen so many confused people in the ED at one time.

    We thought about getting long sleeved t-shirts with "Your tazer certified nurse" printed on the sleeves. That should get some people's attention in the ED who like to come in & raise hell while drunk & otherwise impaired.

    I like that one and will use it at work this week.

    Today there must have been a sign out front that said we running a special on female-of-child-bearing-age abdominal pain - complete with pelvic exams. If I did one, I must have did 101! Even ran out of culture kits and had to get more from the lab!

    I also thought my old ED had theme days. We used to hve "Slingblade Day", and we would all talk like Billy Bob Thorton in the movie Slingblade. (ummmm,I reckon I won't kill me nobody today so they won't put me back in the nervous hospital,ummmmm) We also had Ministry Of Silly Walks day, and we all had to have a different silly walk. Anything to get thru those 12 hours!

    Nah... just print 'Imigration' on them. You'll have a much slower day.... at least those of you down south. (sorry... I'm a Texan... gotta vent)
