In the surgery/supplies department.


So far, one Fucked up hand, skin debridement on a kid, a rectal abscess and a guy who shot himself in the stomach with a shotgun.

My GF is on duty in the ER this weekend. Three OD's last night, one didn't make it. Nutty...

I used to do your job. The only good thing about working today are the stories you can tell about the weird stuff you see/hear about due to the holiday and drinking/fireworks.

Make sure you post about the guy who comes in to get a shampoo bottle removed from his ass or a pen removed from his urethra.

Technically 0, no one sells the good stuff any more. But the hand case is semi related.

No one's figured that out. He apparently laid in a field for a few hours before calling 911.  Entered the front side and exit across the other side. They are doing a bowel resection right now and cleaning things up. Hes lucky.

Have any FSA types shown up for minor injuries yet? Screaming in the waiting room, threatening to sue, with their 87 children running around breaking everything?

I've seen that same thing once in my life. It made me believe in the phrase: "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

OP, how many gunshot wounds have you seen?

Do the people shot with Less Than Lethal calibers (.25, .32, .380, 9mm) come in perky and chipper, like they just got beaned in a softball game?

There was only one person in the waiting room when I came in, usually it's packed with people when I leave at 2300.

I don't get it, if you can wait in the ER waiting room you shouldn't be at the ER.  I wish they were allowed to tell people to go away

I've only seen 3, it's an uncommon thing here. Shotgun was awake and surprisingly normal acting. Guy who bevmcame an active shooter a few months ago was pretty Fucked up, I could t see how after the headshot he was still alive. He didn't make it out of the OR, iirc that was a 9mm. Other one was a leg shot I'm not sure what the round was, but he was drugged up and happy.

So, if I stepped on a rusty nail and it went in half to 3 quarters inch, and I can't remember when I had my last tetanus shot--do I have to come in today, or can I wait until Monday?

Guy waiting in the ER, scheduled for a Lap Exploritory for an apparent foreign object in his abdomen. He had so much gold jewelry and cash, that the hospital wouldn't take his belongings into custody and they made him call a family member to hold on to it.

When they wheeled him by me he was exactly what I pictured in my mind. Don't ever find out what they pulled out of him, but the nurse who scrubbed on that is here today so I'll have to ask.



Not very funny, but it's not a very funny department.



Oh, a co-worker pulled 2 gerbils out of a guys ass at the mayo clinic. She said the worst part was having to give the guy his gerbils back since it was technically his property.

What's the weirdest booking so far on your shift today?
Link Posted: 7/4/2015 7:25:37 PM EDT
Nothing weird today yet but the night is young - infantile at that. 4pm here, another 14 to go.

But off hand the weirdest thing I've seen recently is tough to narrow down. There's always some weird shit. As far as funny weird goes we had a lady not too long ago that came in and halfway through the booking process she claimed her boyfriend had put "something inside of her". She clarified a short time later saying it was "sticks from a tree". As the story passed from one deputy to the other it became a "log in her vagina" and then "a tree branch in her vagina". It was like a dirty, unpleasent game of telephone. Anyway, we have to take that shit seriously so we had to send her for a kit. Apparently she really did have sticks in her vagina.
