there was joy throughout ERland
Having been in the ER for 59 years, I have always wondered why there are some days that bring in hoardes of people. Like today for example. There has to be some kind of rational scientific explanation involving atmospheric changes or something that brings everybody out at once. Someone work on that alright?
Anyway...I would like to propose a new national holiday that would only apply to ERs. It would be called the "national ER chronic pain patient free holiday". One day a year, all ERs could have this one day in which they wouldn't have to take care of any of the following patients and their complaints:
low back pain
chronic abdominal pain
any weird syndromes
Joy would ring throughout ER land. Angels would be singing. Nurses would be dancing. Everyone would want to work that day. The day no one did a crappie flop on the floor, threatened to call their lawyer, had to be put out by security...oh happy day....
