“Our Lady of Perpetual Sepsis Nursing home, this is the nursing supervisor how can I help you”

“Hi, this is Dr. ERJedi, I have a man here from your nursing home with what appears to be a 2mm paper cut on his finger. I’m just wondering if I’m missing something or if there was another reason you sent him over”

“We though we should send him over because he’s on a blood thinner and we were worried he was going to keep bleeding”

“What blood thinner is he on?”



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. If that isn’t good alocation of the ER’s resources and tax-payer money, I don’t know what is…

  2. I personally love it when they send them over for bleeding for a month while keeping them on their Pradaxa, aspirin, and Plavix.
