On ED. Finally.

Posted on: August 7, 2012

So I’m finally on my ED rotation. A little bit of a rough start but I think I’m starting to get the swing of things. The patients are random, chaotic, sick and wonderful.

I had one patient who came in for one complaint, but like most of our patients, come to find out there’s another crazy unrelated issue.. she hasn’t had a period on 3 months. I asked her if she thought she was pregnant. She said, “I dunno.”

I asked her if she was normally regular, she said “Very regular. Like clockwork.”

I asked her if she took a pregnancy test, she said “No… I’ve just been praying. Waiting on a miracle.”
I didn’t even have the heart to tell her it didn’t work like that…. poor thing. I think she already knew anyway. She was such a sweetheart too. I liked her a lot.

Wow, was she a younger woman? Was she scared to find out? I’m glad your enjoying ED… What do your hours look like?

No she wasn’t scared. Like I said, I think she already knew. My hours are cool. I have about four 8-hr shifts every wk which is pretty chill. Wayyy better than MICU when I was working 12-13 hrs 6 days a wk lol
