We had two 16 year old girls come in by ambulance last week.
It was lunch time and the nearby high school kids are taking off like crazy to all the nearest fast food joints.
There was a minor fender-bender.
These two little sophomores were a little shaken up but unharmed.
Paula and I took care of them. (Paula is the nicest, sweetest nurse ever!)
A while later Paula comes out to chart and starts giggling. She's trying not to giggle.
I look at her quizzically.
If it's funny it must be shared....that's an unwritten law.
We thrive on funny in the ER.
She says she was doing the typical triage and asking the million questions we ask.
Paula: "are you allergic to any medication"
16 year old: "uh no"
Paula: "have you had any surgeries in the past?"
16 year old: "no"
Paula: "When was you last period?"
16 year old: "Seminary"
OK maybe I'm tired...but it's been a week and I'm still laughing about it.
So, in other news:
I'm sunlight deficient.
I feel a RANT coming on.
Stay tuned for another edition of Ask-A-Nurse
So hurry and be sure to ask your questions...but use caution...you may NOT want to hear the answers.
