Interesting characters and encounters...

...I've met thus far in the Emergency Room

Frau Blucher (hears whinny in background)

So this young man comes into the ER. He calls 911 at 2:00 in the AM complaining of chest pain and difficulty breathing. Yikes! EMS arrives and starts an IV and fluid bolus, gets him in the truck, rushes him to the hospital, etc., etc. About half-way to the hospital, although he does actually have an elevated heart rate and elevated blood pressure, he tells them he lied. He just needed his prescriptions refilled and knew that if he went to the ER we would write new ones for him. WTF?

3:00 AM. A young lady comes to the ER for....

wait for it....

wait for it....

A boil on her ass. Woot!

Both of these twats are?
a) responsible, working, productive young adults
b) could have waited to see a general practitioner during normal office hours
c) on the public dole and wasting your tax dollars
If you guessed "b" and "c" you're correct! Tell 'em what they've won Johnny!

More to come I'm sure.

What they deserve to win is a swift kick in the ass.

Did the paramedics bring "chest pain" guy in anyway??
