I get comments every once in a while about patients wondering
why the ED staff is laughing while at work.
Shouldn't you be busy saving lives..?

When you get patients like this:

You sometimes have to laugh.
Of course, I can't post some of the more
life-threatening emergencies we see,
but after a particularly bad code, you
sometimes have to let off some steam.

So, I thought I would again share some of my
favorite medical cartoons...

I would guess there's no end to the crazy stuff you see. My nephew is a fireman and EMT. They get crazy calls all the time -- usually old people asking if they can pick up a prescription or give them a ride somewhere.

I want to say , 'God Bless You', too.
My mom was a nurse and back then they didn't sass,flirt with or otherwise disrespect the Doctor.
A doctor has a very emotional, tiring and mostly thankless job. I hold doctors in high esteem!!

Christopher, I have no identifiers on the information, it is at least 2 years old. There's no age or other information that would give away who the patient was. Plus, the doctor stopped working at our hospital over 2 years ago as well.
