    Betsy, Do you remember the dude that came into the ER
    0200 "I am turning blue" po2 100% RA no resp distress,
    says, loook I am turning blue, sure enough his legs are
    B L U E pulled down his socks, no blue. DX: NEW BLUE JEANS, before "prewash" in the '80s.... we Laughed out loud and called every nurse in and supervisor too to come see this..... which lead to a patient complaint...

    Pt complained that they had been waiting in the ER for 7 hours. Yes, i know their throat really did hurt. No, we only have 1 dr. Yes thats right only 1! I can't help it that we have had 2 traumas and just had to also send someone out in a helicopter. Yes, this is the ER not medpoint. Yes, there are really people will real emergencies that come first. No it is not first come first serve.
