Best complaint of the night

in my ER was the person with back pain:” the beds at the jail were too hard”.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.


  1. Lordy, don’t get me started on inmates. They will come up with some of the most pituful stories thinking that they will be able to get out of jail. Not!

    These people will be out fighting, drinking or doing whatever it is that gets them landed in the pokey and once they get there, all of a sudden, that debilitating illness that they have been suffering with for the past 349 days makes them too sick to do their time.

    Maybe if you ER docs would automatically insert a urinary cathater, a couple of 14 g IV’s and do an anal probe upon their arrival, the word would get around that “playing sick” isn’t in their best interest. ;)
