WE WON! Let us know if you do.


We WON! We beat the universe! On 4/1 at 0640, our 37 bed ER cleared it's very last patient up to the floor, bringing our pt. census to 0!!! :roflmao: This hardly ever happens, so we did a bit of a celebratory "Happy happy Joy Joy" dance, and seranaded the day shift that came in at 0650 with our rousing rendition of "We are the CHAMPIONS......." So I'm starting a tag thread to all of our fellow ED's- When you beat the game, come on here and brag. The first ED who can add their "Win" to this thread will get our applause- heck, I'll even promise to send you a card and a "Prize" if you are willing to give me a contact name and address for your ED. Lets foster some intra-ED camradery! Rules to enter the game 1. You must have at least a 30 bed ED. Smaller ERs are welcome to add their accomplishment, but I've worked in small, 6 bed EDs, and clearing the board is a fairly frequent occurance. 2. If you accept the card of congrats that I send, you have to be willing to forward it to the next ED after adding your hospital and names. Come on ya'll- Us wonderful peeps from CRMC are waiting to hear from you!
