Is Don a patient too? Yes!
was he pushed into the room on a gurney? Yes
was he to have an rectal exam at the same time as Joe? He'd already had one, actually...
This is from an Emergency Medicine thread called "Things I Learn From My Patients."
I learned how important it is to have good buddies "to watch your back" while I was on the trauma service.
A scaffold collapsed dropping two construction workers 20-30 feet (reportedly). The "sicker" of the two arrived about 15 minutes before the other. Being the efficient trauma team we stripped and flipped him (including the mandatory ATLS rectal exam) and had him rolling out of the trauma bay to the scanner just as his buddy was coming in. As the paramedics were starting to give their report he yelled out "Hey Joe, don't let em turn you over!"
I guess you had to be there
Nicely done Grip for persevering through to the solution!
