Best Joke of the Day!

  1. ENA and American College of Surgeons issued a joint statement discouraging people who are not sick from coming to the ED due to the risks of the potential flu pandemic.

    Yeah, that'll work. :icon_roll

    Our walk in traffic was WAY down over the last few days. We are bracing ourselves for the inevitable backlash that will occur on what is supposed to be a beautiful weekend.

    Our two ER's have been SWAMPED for the past few nights. Everyone and their DOG have been showing up. People are at a panic already - sorry "Intelligent-Folks-In-Charge", the blister of public panic has already popped. It's time to do some major damage control.

    All visitors and ER staff are required to wear masks when in the patient rooms while they are in our two ER's. It is darn near impossible to run your buns off and wear a mask at the same time!

    Everyone wearing masks is REALLY going to reassure them that death is not just a sneeze away.

    I feel like I'm in one of those pictures that you see of Mexico City - EVERYONE wearing masks!

    Not to mention all these newbie panickers are ticking off the regular frequent fliers who are having to wait in line with them.
