Yesterday was just another day at work. I spent it in the ER looking after patients. Most of them have little money, so we prioritize their labs and meds. We do their histories, run their labs, bring them to radio for imaging, get their ECGs and ABGs done. Everything the residents need, we do. At the same time, we try to make them as comfortable as possible. Being sick sucks.
For all this, we get nothing. But it’s always nice to feel appreciated. Some patients say it with McDonalds.
