I think there's a new TV show coming out......

....and I'm fairly certain it was filmed last night in my ER.*

I worked with two docs that were younger than me, and 4 of the 5 RNs were young enough that I could have given birth to them. The other RN was old enough to be my mother. Almost all of them were Hollywood beautiful.

Mixed in amongst all of the stinky and annoying not-sick patients, we had a "stopped-breathing-right-in-front-of-EMS" code, an internal carotid dissection, a new onset paranoid schizophrenia, a classic presentation STEMI with a 31 minute door-to-balloon time, a ruptured appy, and a GSW to the head.

I swear, I spent the whole night looking around for the cameras.

*(No, it's not an ED, Whitecoat. It is one super-big room with a bunch of curtains and partitions. Some of the partitions just happen to be made of wood, metal and glass.)

I can only think of one thing.... You must be getting old if almost everyone is younger than you.

I'm just sayin'.
