I'm unable to make a judgement call without knowing what exact consoles & game titles he was purloining.

Happy Hours: Surgery for a burn suffered from a lighter? Yeah, there's gotta be more to it than that. I've burned myself with lighters and cigarettes over the years, but usually only when I was so drunk that it took a few seconds to notice I was burning myself. That stuff heals fine without treatment.

To be fair, "playing with a lighter" could mean anything from a minor burn that stops hurting in ten minutes, all the way up to "Oops, the curtains are on fire. And so is the furniture. And the cat."

BronyMedic: Resident Muslim: Damage control, I'm guessing.

When you have both parents visiting and spending long hours with a severely injured kid, you need a place to keep the brothers and sisters occupied lest they wreak havoc (or just end up racing each other down the long hallways).

The big reason is for the patients themselves. Some are there for weeks, months, or even years depending on their condition, and it's to keep them involved and enriched, as well as provide morale and distraction based on their respective age groups.

Child Life Specialists do nothing but work with kids all day with games, movies, and video games to help them. It's a pretty awesome job.

The place I work at has one of those Hotel Game-on-demand systems in each room other than in the ER, that has Gamecube and Playstation 3 games on it. It's pretty freaking neat.

I stand corrected.
