Things not to do in the ED #27

Profess that as “a good Christian man” you want to change hallway chairs to get away from the patient who got drunk and high and broke his hand a day ago.

Especially since this if the third ED you’ve been to today to try to get a vicodin prescription for your undiagnosable chronic neck pain.


(Insert your own pain in the neck joke here).


  1. Or the lady that tripped and fell three weeks ago, hurting her thumb and wants attention NOW!!!! When asked why she didn’t follow up with her regular doc…”well I don’t have a regular doc and it takes ssooooo long to get one”. Hm, seems to me that THREE weeks would be an appropriate amount of time to wait to schedule a first visit!!!!
