Like a well-oiled triage team

Sadly a GIS FOR "oiled nurses" wasn't as good as I hoped.

Actually the bio-availability of metallic lead is very low. That's why people can survive for years with a slug in them.

Yes, it's quite a site to see them nursing when you walk in, utterly wonderful.

I'm going to stop you right there. We don't even have our own bars anymore. I was just in Phoenix after a 2-year absence. THREE of my favorite gay bars had converted to straight bars. I was appalled.

Speaking as an ER nurse in Reno, this isn't an uncommon occurrence. I've taken care of two stab victims in bars. Fun times.

At least the bars in Reno have gloves.

I was going to say that I'd rather stumble into a bar full of doctors, but I bet the docs would just scramble around looking for a nurse to actually do something.

Been in that bar several times, never knew or noticed it was a nurse bar.
Point of reference the bridge that fell in 1/2 a click north.

The bar was pretty crowded with more than 25 people inside,

That's a pretty small bar.

Depends on the type of doc. I had a couple first year residents asking me (IT Guy) questions about patient care. They didn't want to ask the nurses or their supervisor because they didn't want to look stupid.

You might be better off stumbling into a bar full of sharks covered in blood than relying on some of those residents.

Standing around training nurses at the lunch trucks is a depressing experience. No great hive of scum and villainy, and all that. I figured literacy would be an entrance requirement, but...

A bunch of the cheerleaders at my college were nursing students. I'm about eight years removed from school now, but a bunch of them still cheer for a minor-league team I started doing some work for and we hang out occasionally now.

Even though a few now have kids and all have day jobs, they're still pretty crazy. But they like to say they're not as crazy as they were in college. They started telling me about a lingerie party they had at their house on campus once that made me thoroughly disgusted. No, not about the party ... about the fact I lived at home while I was at school and I in no way knew the right people to get invited. I always hear about these things years too late, dammit.

Reminds me of the bar near one of our major hospitals. Place is called Sutures! You haven't seen hard drinking until you drank with a bunch of doctors and nurse coming off the night shift of a holiday weekend.
 
2013-01-07 02:49:06 PM
i call shenanigans.  i used to be married to an RN, and when i accidentally shot myself she didn't even get out of bed.  i DROVE MYSELF to the hospital.

/though, in her defense, our daughter and me had a history of practical jokes...

Does this portion of the article make a bit of sense to anyone?

"Police continue to investigate the shooting at Bobby & Steve's Auto World, and nobody has been arrested. The man was confronted about 1 a.m. inside the gas station and was shot outside as he tried to flee. The shooting suspects were in two vehicles, said Sgt. Stephen McCarty.

An armed security guard at the business shouted a warning before firing at the vehicles, but it's unclear whether anyone else was injured or whether they returned fire, McCarty said. Police said the victim managed to drive the short distance to Maxwell's.

FTA - And Maxwell's picked up the nurses' tabs.

Classy move.

That's the downside of winning the campaign to be recognized as normal people. Normal people don't have [differentiator] bars. They go to bars, which are full of normal people, some of which are straight and some are gay, no big whoop.

If gay people are now normal people that don't have to go to a gay bar because they're perfectly welcome in normal bars, the market opportunity for a gay bar diminishes.

Like anywhere else, how good someone is at their job does vary. I've seen some really stuuuuuuuupid nurses, residents, docs and medical office managers. As well as some incredibly brilliant people in all of those posistions. The guy who was shot, was really lucky that all six nurses were so well trained that they worked, as a team-even though is seems they all hadn't worked together before, to save his life. Those nurses truely define what is best in the practice of medicine.

(CSB)
Back in 1988, when I lived in Venice Beach, I was in a motorcycle accident.  A moran turned left in front of me as I entered the intersection.  After I bounced off his windshield and landed in the middle of the intersection I was lucking enough that there was an off duty EMT and nurse walking by.
Escaped with minor injuries, aside from bumps and bruises, I tore the ligament in my right thumb and had a sternum contusion.

There is just all types of win in there and great job on the part of the bar for picking up the tab of the nurses. The story reminds me of the time I was at a bar and one man stab another before fleeing. I happened to be having a few drinks with a friend I served with and we both happened to have had basic combat field dressing training and firsthand experience. The knife had punctured his right lung so he had a sucking chest wound we stabilized him with the help of my driver's license, packing tape and some bar towels. The bar picked up our tab too plus the police had the DMV issue me a new license at no charge. I have no idea what happened to either man since I never saw them again.

You know, I was banned for three days once for posting that exact damn picture.

Start CSB:
Years ago I was at a Jackyl / ZZ Top concert in Jacksonville, Florida. Went with a few friends and my sister. Maybe five rows in front of us two groups of bikers got into a big fight that started moving in our direction. Suddenly, the three rows in front of us surged forward and pinned every damn guy in the melee to the ground.

Turns out we were sitting behind three dozen prison guards who came together for the concert.

So if you're going to have a biker brawl break out around you while Jackyl is playing, having dozens of prison guards who love to beat up bikers on hand is a convenient thing.

End CSB

A good friend of mine had an uncle that was hit by a truck, throwing him from his motorcycle, through a fence, into a back yard where there was a BBQ going on.

The fence riped open his gut to the point where he could see some of his own intestines.

The BBQ was being put on by a ER doctor and his doctor friends.
