Chaos Ensues

“You’ve been busy tonight, haven’t you?”

The officer looked up from what he was writing, and with a slight smirk uttered “you have no idea.”

The hospital I work at is located in a small city, next to a slightly larger city, which is only hours away from major metropolitan cities. This hospital is not a trauma center, but a small community facility. Yes, we do get the random MVA or assault, but not like we experienced last night… and not all in the same night.

Hang around a hospital long enough and you’ll hear someone mention that the full moon brings the crazies out. What you may not hear, but after tonight it should be considered, is that the first warm day of the season brings out just as much of the same crazy

The night started off in typical fashion- busy at the change of shift with a handful of admissions. Soon enough, the board started to empty out and all was well.

And then came the crazy.

Man was rushed in after being stabbed at a party. Once he was stabilized, we shipped him off to the trauma hospital.

Man walked in after getting beat up on his way home. Lesson learned here: don’t walk home alone intoxicated. And refrain from being chatty… it will get you nowhere.

Man was rushed in after being shot at a party. His drama came with him, in the form of a very obnoxious, and instigating female. We left it to his family to kick her ass out of the room.

Man was brought in after getting beat up on his way home. Turns out he knew our other assault patient. Lesson learned here: don’t walk home alone intoxicated. And be careful if you choose to fight back, you may befriend the pavement in more ways than one.
