St. Patrick’s Day

(if you are seeing this post, you’ve successfully made it to the new site)

Around 7pm last night we started tracking the cumulative BAL (blood alcohol level) of the patients coming into the ED. 80-100 is legally drunk (depending on where you live). We were over 1100 when I left at midnight.  Any guesses on the final number?

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.

  1. Depends on the cut off time of most bars and pubs in your area. Probably 2200 by 8am? I’d assume around 4am is when lots of “24YOM/YOF- ?collapse?” calls would start rolling through the doors. That’s if your bars and pubs close ~2am.
