That’s what she said.

I was cleaning out my work bag tonight, getting ready for my first ER shift as an R2 in the morning, and I found a few scraps of paper where I had written down some patient quotes and stories. Of the ones that are still legible after my water bottle exploded in the bag…


Male patient: “I may have 18 kids, but I’m very selective as to whom I sleep with.”


Me: Is there any chance you are pregnant?

Female patient: Nah

Me: Are you sexually active

Female patient: Hell yeah

Me: Do you use any sort of birth control?

Female patient: Nah. Look, I know I’m not pregnant

Me: What makes you know that?

Female patient I’m not pregnant cause I don’t want to be. That’s all I need.

Me: Hmmmm, that’s not exactly how that works….

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.
