Welcome to my ER blog. I'm an Emergency Room Nurse who loves what he does for a living. I get to meet really interesting people, help those in need, and make a difference.
I also see patients coming in for the most ridiculous of reasons. I'm forced by law to see people who really don't need to be in an ER. Some of these people are so utterly ridiculous as to be worthy of being blogged about. That's what this particular blog is all about. So, read, laugh, enjoy, comment, and have fun.

That's Definitely NOT An Emergency
Ok, people, it is not ok to call EMS for "weakness," then tell ER staff that your chief complaint is:
"I just want somebody to hold me."
That's going to get you out the door pretty much just as fast as you came in here.
