Here's where we post ER trauma drama, which is sometimes hilarious, other times incredible.

Christmas Eve, my very good friend had an extreme allergic reaction. We had planned to spend the holiday at a casino in Atlantic City. She had extensive cosmetic dental work (crowns and laminates)a few days earlier, and was apparently allergic to whatever was used to cement the laminates. We couldn't contact the dentist, who was away for the holiday. Her face looked like a blotchy moon pie. So we went to an ER in a community hospital.

She was given a shot and had to stay a few hours for observation, since the swelling wasn't abating.

Of course, the ER was full of drunks, druggies, and domestic assaults (it is southern Jersey after all).

One young guy was brought in by police, after his mother called them saying he was off his meds. He was bothering the nurses trying to use the phone to call his girl friend. The nurses unplugged the phone and he went on to have a conversation nonetheless. When he was escorted to his bed, he berated the nurses. Screaming choke on cock to all and sundry.

A young woman brought in, high as a kite. She paraded around in her hospital gown, untied and hanging off, panties slipping down. She too was belligerent. When the nurse tried to get a blood sample, she demanded a turkey sandwich. I want a turkey sandwich and it better have mayo! One of the nurses brought her one from the vending machine trying to quiet her. She screamed you call this a turkey sandwich bitch! I said mayo!

My poor friend was laying in bed, now being seen by a very proper doctor, an african gentleman. He explained that unless she showed signs of responding to the drugs she would have to stay overnight. Meanwhile the crazy guy and the girl were sitting on the bed on the other side of the curtain. The nurses were trying to separate them. She was offering him some of her sandwich, even if it did suck. He was still yelling curses at everyone. The nurses sent for hospital security.

Just as the doctor was saying 'I am sorry madame, but you must stay." The crazy guy was yelling that he had a cock that could choke any whore. The doctor was so shocked. My friend assured him, don't worry doctor we are both public school teachers and used to that sort of thing. She is always good for a laugh. I promised that we would return if she didn't show improvement. We went on to the casino, and she kept taking benadryll. It took a few days for the swelling to abate. All I have to do is say choke on cock and both of us die laughing.

I forgot to add that as we were leaving the ER I thanked the nurses. In sympathy I said "I guess it really gets kind of crazy around a holiday". The nurse at the desk said "No, it's like this almost every night. You should see it when every bed is full." No pay is great enough for the things they have to tolerate.

I had the misfortune of being placed in a bed in a Toronto hospital ER next to a young woman who was high on something, who screamed and yelled for something to put her out so much that the cops came to intervene. She accused them of wanting to rape her, threatened to "piss her bed" which she eventually did... and the results flowed into the area I was in, blowing her bloody nose on the curtain between us and a number of other things I think I've blocked out.

Fun times. You couldn't pay me enough to be an ER nurse at this place.
