8-Fer


A family of EIGHT came in for me to see. This isn't as many as my record (15), but it was definitely the 2nd most.

The family ranged from ages 7-79. They were in a Dodge Durango on the way to a graduation. They were rear ended at low speed. Everyone was wearing a seat belt. They all then went to the graduation and celebration.

Afterward, some 4 hours later, they decided to come in and "get checked out." And I discharged them ALL from the waiting room.

At least they didn't have scabies?

That's an easy way for the ER to make some money. Glad that they were all okay.

Are you single? Just wondering...

My ER would never do that. They'd come back two at a time until everyone was seen. Each sore part would be xrayed. Everyone would get scripts.
