I Am Not Dead Yet

Hello all,

So. I started traveling. I hated it. Now I’m doing it again because I need money, but in my home state so I can go home on my off days. Seems to be working better thus far! Once I collect my thoughts I’ll post some stories from the last few assignments. 🙂


So here’s a chief complaint to kick off the new era!

Patient who had been taking a medication to quit smoking, wanted to know why they hadn’t actually stopped smoking yet. Had not attempted to wean in a month. I guess this person didn’t understand the concept of weaning. And also free will. Oops.

Hello there kids,

I am currently in the Throes of Week Long Hospital Orientation, hence the continued silence.

Start in the ED on Saturday!

Time for a Change

Guess who’s going to be traveling?

Hint: it’s me.


Hopefully this will kindle some excellent new stories, as I’ve been a bit fuzzy in the brain lately and obviously this has impaired my wits a bit. Stress from deliberate understaffing plus real life ridiculousness can do that, I guess.


Stay tuned to this space for The Adventures of Rescue Ninja: Traveler’s Edition!

Maybe it’s where I live, or perhaps it’s just that people in general don’t give a damn about their education anymore… but spelling/grammar errors on sign-in sheets really irk me. Here’s a few gems from the last few weeks:

– testikal pain
– chess pain and breath
– adomal pane
– intergastrikis
