ACEP Wednesday

Started early. Sorry, but day 5 of early mornings have made me a tad cranky. I’ve never been a ‘morning person’, and this is pushing my good nature.

I went to a conference at 8AM. I wish I could tell you what it was about, but right now I don’t remember. No direspect to the lecturer; it wasn’t bad, just not memorable. Then, a goood lecture on EMTALA (the road to hell, pavement, etc), then an interesting Tox lecture. Fun photos of snakebitten people (also Gila-monster bitten). Then I had to catch a plane, and I’m home.

A good time was had by me, and I got a good deal out of it.


  1. EMTALA – when you you don’t want the patient all you gotta do is say it’s emergent or that you don’t provide the service and Major Medical Center automatically gets the patient!(ramblings from the former Director of Admitting at Major Medical Center).

    OK, I’m really not quite that cynical, but it’s close the truth! have a great day! :)
