THINGS I'VE HEARD IN TRIAGE...TODAY.

ER life.
  1. "I don't know how it got up there, but I tried to blow it out of him."
  2. "Is it normal for her to be talking this much?" (About her toddler)
  3. "Ouch! Now my finger has a heartbeat"
  4. "A 3 hour wait time?! Can we make a reservation and come back?"
  5. "I think this paper cut is infected"
  6. "She has had a fever for a few days...I tried to treat it with olive oil and garlic but I don't think it's working and we ran out so I came here."
  7. (When asked when her last period was) "yesterday. No...wait...that was the last time I pooped".
