Connect Four

Four sequential codes in the ER today. Four. One, two, three, four.

Two of them were mine.

One arrived dead, but was coded just the same…young adult, overdose. At least it wasn’t intentional, said a nurse. Hmm. I think drug abuse is intentional. Sorry, no sympathy, I’ve got other dying patients to see that actually have a chance. ( I think she was referring to an intentional suicide. IV heroin use might as well be. Idiots.)

I may write about the others or I may not, just wanted to share.
