Happy Independence Day

Last night we had a gentlemen with a triage note stating, "Pt states he has been drinking and he thought he threw the firework but it went off in his hand. Small burns noted to R index and middle fingers and palm."

Be careful out there. The idiots are everywhere.

I love that movie. I cry every time the President's wife dies. That little girl is so sad. Not too good an actress, but still so sad. :)

That guy that came into your ER is lucky that he didn't lose the stinkin' fingers and only had minor burns. You are right. Idiots are everywhere.

Thanks for working the 4th... Somebody has to patch up the idjits... Hopefully you will get a day off of your choice!

Yesterday, my friends and I all watched the fireworks from my friend's roof. I had triage notes going through my head like mad. Ladders, a roof, and alcohol. I needed quite a bit of encouragement to climb a LADDER. Yeeeeeshhhhhh. Hate it.

Same idiots as the rest of the year, just more dangerous toys than usual - until they drive home drunk.
