We'll still have to tube him if he has underlying pneumonia.
One step at a time.
What are you two talking about? You have a lot of fluid outside your lungs.
It's making it hard for you to breathe.
What can you do for that? We can drain the fluid, which will make you feel a lot better.
So let's put your mask back on and lean forward.
Let's dangle your legs.
That's alright.
Now we're going to clean the skin with a bit of Betadine.

I heard what happened.
Are you here by yourself? You know, her friends and uhm.

Well, you weren't there, right? Stacey was texting me.
My parents wouldn't let me go.
I was really angry I wasn't there.
So she was texting me all night, to tell me about the party.
She told me she was sick.

And I.

thought it was funny.
I should've called somebody.

I could've Maybe I could've The ER is the nerve center where it all begins.
Between the ER and the urgent care, we see over 200000 patients a year.
As med students, this will be your first rotation.
to be on the frontline of urban medecine, or if you're a little bit more suited for dermatology, plastics, something a little bit more.
.
more safe, that you could practice out in the suburbs.
Triage is our first stop.
We rely on our talented nursing staff to determine who's going to be first - and who's going to have to wait.
- And wait and wait.
These highly trained professionals can tell the difference between a hot MI and a common indigestion just by looking at a guy.
After triage, the patient is brought back.
The chart is racked.
You pick up the next in line, no matter what.
When you get caught swapping fecal incontinence for knee pain, - you'll never hear the end of it.
- Glad you learned your lesson.
Our curtain areas are for our subacute patients.
Over there is the break room where we got bad coffee and stale bagels.
Trust me, you don't want to be going over there.
Uhm, excuse me! Keep up, OK? So here's the deal about being a med student.
Some docs like to teach, but most just see us as a pain in the ass.
So they won't be issuing any formal invitations to the cool stuff.
You've got to keep your eye open and go after the action.
It's not going to come to you.
Come on.
Another epi and shock him again.
This is Dr.
Brenner, one of our fine ER attendings.
Dr Brenner, this is the tour of the prospective med students that you asked me to Chaz, get them the hell out of here! OK, so who wants to see the suture rooms? Clear! - Anybody seen Brenner? - Down in trauma with a chest pain.

I started AZT as soon as it was out.
It's great that you've been able to fight it off this long.
Come on, Doctor, no holding back.
I can take it.
Believe me.
Your test results came back.
There were atypical lymphocytes.
Large immunoblastic cells.
What does that mean? It means that you have cancer.
It's a little nasty out there today.
If it keeps up, we're going to start handing out life jackets.

- Good to see you, good luck in there.
Pathology says it's primary effusion lymphoma.
- Who's this? - My guy who couldn't breathe - What's his prognosis? - Medium survival is 2 months.
- And his options? - Chemo and radiation could - give him another couple of months.
- You told him he has cancer? - Yeah, couple of hours ago.
- Brave.
Or maybe just relieved.
- Relieved? - Dr Brenner? To finally know how and when after all these years.
Back and forth, keep it smooth.
Excellent.
Good.
That'll do it.
Yeah, man, that looks good.
I think you were right about the color.
I don't know.
The cobalt blue would've been cool too.
No.
The red is more your mother.
Yeah, all fire.
- It's better than cold and distant.
- If you say so.
I know so.
She's going to love this.
- Definitely Sorry I've been gone so long, something came up.
Oh, that's OK.
Gerry came by.
Gerry Gugliemotto, Dr Wise.
She's very nice.
- Great to meet you.
- Nice to meet you.
Gerry brought me gardenias.
I just love gardenias, don't you? The smell.
The rest of your labs came back.
- Everything looks clear.
- Except for the cancer.
But it means your body could tolerate chemotherapy.
No.
No thanks.
It could buy you a few more months.
I've already had an extra 20 years, Doc.
I should've died with all my friends, in the eighties.
You're still here.
Tommy and Bill.
Jeff and David.
- Remember Michael Thomas? - Of course I do.
Little Bobby? So many people I've loved.
I've been trying to live for them, you know? Keep their memories alive.
But I've had my time.
No regrets.
I went skydiving last year in Hawaï.
It was the most remarkable thing I was floating free.
I couldn't feel my body.
I'm afraid of heights, but I wasn't, up there.
I guess I hope that's kind of what death is like, Doc.
Floating free in the air above everything.
Just watching the world drift by.
Is there anything I can do for you? Yeah, there is.
I don't want it to hurt.
We can help with that.
She's going to the cath lab any second.
Hoola-girl needs an X-ray of her wrist.
We got an SPO who's NPO and not happy about it.
Sickler with a fever.
Dislodged G-tube on an old gal that came in from Lakeshore, and a 3-week-old with lethargy and cardiomegaly, admitted for echo.
And as you can see, the hallucinating trombone guy's still here.
Tox was negative, but we're trying to find a psych bed somewhere in Chicago.
- My alcohol poisoning girl still here? - The family didn't want here admitted here, so they're transferring her to Mercy, but Mercy hasn't picked her up yet.
Hey Jerry, look at this inbox.
It's empty.
All of my dayshift paperwork is completed.
Look.
It's a thing of beauty, it's a clerical Mona Lisa.
I just wanted you to see what it looks like so you can try try to replicate that for when I come in tomorrow.
Tough day? About the same as any other.
- Good night, y'all.
- Good night.
Watch out for the guy in 3.
- He's a grabber.
- Thanks.
- You look nice.
- I got a thing to go to.
You saw a med school applicant today: Rachel Greene.
- She's pretty great.
- She a student of yours? No, she's Mark Greene's daughter.
So you have no first hand knowledge of her academic qualifications? No.
But I've known her since she was a kid and Marc was a great doctor.
I'm sure the apple didn't fall too far from the tree.
She did well on the interview.
I can't say if she'll make the final list, but she made the first cut.
- So he's a bit of boozer? - Stinks of bourbon by noon - Doesn't it affect his work? - No, that's the irritating thing.
Drunk as a skunk, and he's still a wonderful surgeon.
- Is that Neela? - Yeah.
- Hey, how's the teaching going? - Got most of the R3's.
Very polite, they follow me around like duckling.
I'm sure they're in awe of the depth of your surgical brilliance.
Either that, or your exceptional beauty.
- I think they may just be stupid.
- Hey, is that Neela? Hey, how's life on the bayou? The bayou is like a 100 miles away, Morris.
Pediatrics finally showed up to extubate the mec kid.
Thanks.
I gotta go.
I'll speak to you later.
How's the mom? - Still in surgery, I think.
- She's still in the OR? As far as I know, yeah.
Do you mind if I tag along with you? - See you, Neela.
- Bye.
Hey Joe, how're we doing? Suctioned out the trach and the stomach.
No mec below the chords.
Satting at 100%.
Vigorous tone, good respiratory effort.
- I think we can extubate.
- Oxygen is ready.
Here we go.
Good air movement.
Can I hold her? By all means.
How 'bout you go and grab the rest of the kids? Oh, I gotta go.
Good work, Doctors.
- Thanks, Joe.
- Yeah.
What's the mom still doing in the OR? She's probably already out.
Sometimes they forget to call.
Hey guys, do you want to meet your sisters? - Yeah.
- Yeah.
Come on.
Where's my mom? history of MS and pyelonephritis, on home IV care.
Now with altered mental status and resperatory distress.
BP 60 palp.
Gave 500 cc of saline to get her pressure up, - but it's all going to her lungs.
- She's been coughing and groaning terrible.
- She's burning up.
- Pulmonary edema.
Probably septic.
It's the second time we're in here.
We've been taken care of by Dr.
Gates.
- Her parents around? - They've been here all day.
They must be around here somewhere.
Hey, Tony? Old lady with MS just came in with sepsis.
Husband said you've been treating her.
- You look tired.
- Thanks - Are you OK? - Yeah, this this 17-yr-old girl came in last night with alcohol poisoning, BA 4.
20.
Still hasn't come around.
She was texting her friend all night, telling her she was throwing up.
Her friend thought it was cool.
Mr.
Manning.
Marjorie's not doing too well, huh? I know a lot of us never actually thought that this day would come.
In fact I think I was one of them.
But here we are, in this beautiful facility finally ready to provide state-of-the-art out-patient services to the HIV/AIDS community, the homeless, families in need.
Medical care, dental care, daycare,.
.
counseling Services that have been sorely lacking at County for many years.
I I don't want to try your patience, by rambling on too long.
But I hope you'll bare with me for a moment while I talk about why we chose the name 'The Joshua Carter Center'.
My wife and I had a son, and we named him Joshua.
And he died.
Excuse me.
And it seems so senseless.
.
That we My wife and I, we've struggled to find some.
.
sort of meaning in it.
And in the aftermath of our small tragedy, we.
.
realised that we could make a difference in other people's lives, other people experiencing their own small tragedies.
And that made, somehow, the loss of Joshua barable.
Thank you so much for coming.
Bravo.
- I didn't embarass myself? - I wouldn't go that far.
You came.
I didn't think you would.
Neither did I.
Sorry I was late, flight was delayed.
- It was a beautiful speech.
- Hey, John, I want you to mee Wendy Spencer from the Fort Foundation.
Right over here.
Your wife has low blood pressure from the sepsis but giving her IV fluids would only cause more damage to the lungs.
We discussed this when you wanted to take her home, Paul, that this would most likely happen.
I didn't realise.
Please, do something.
Marjorie has a DNR, she doesn't want us to intervene.
Oh, I've got her power of attorney here.
Here That means I can decide for her, right? Your wife has a degenerative disease that left her debilitated.
without enough strength to fight off this infection.
Even with agressive treatment she would only live a week or two in the ICU on machines.
A ventilator, dialysis, IV pumps to keep her pressure up.
It's only going to prolong the pain and suffering.
I'm not ready to lose her.
It's time to talk about how to make her as comfortable as possible.
Excuse me, I'm here to check on a patient.
- And you are? - Dr Wise from the ER.
- I called but I got put on hold.
- Yeah, we're swamped.
Couple of people called in sick.
Stomach flue.
We brought a woman up, inverted uterus, bleeding with an accreta.
- Her name's Salamunovich.
- Dr.
Zwerling just went out to find the family They're still downstairs.
They have a bunch of kids.
One of the twins had mec.
Did she have the hysterectomy? No, she went in with DIC, they coded her for over an hour, she died.
Wasn't me.
Wasn't me.
Make a wish and blow out the candles.
- Very funny.
- What'd you wish? I wished that nobody had told you guys it was my birthday.
- Cut the cake.
- Hey, what're you doing here? I wanted to give you your present.
- How did you get here? - I drove.
- Drove what? - Wanna see it? Go ahead, we got it here.
Hey, the twins are doing great, they're keeping one overnight in the NICU but the other one's already on the way to the nursery.
What? - What're you doing, Alex? - Just one second.
- Just give me one second.
- I'm working.
Mom, just one minute, you'll love it.
What're you doing? You drove that? Whose car is that? - Alex, do they know you have it? - Mom.
Nobody is going to let a 16-yr-old kid drive that car.
Open this.
- Whose car is that, Alex? - Just open the box.
Mom, it's yours.
It was pretty banged up at first, but Tony helped me fix it up.
- Alex did all the work.
- No, no.
Get in.
- What? - Go.
- Go, mom.
Oh my god, are you kidding? It's beautiful.
Are you serious? Are you Mom, just turn it over.
Oh my god! I don't know if I can do this.
Do what? This.
Every day.
Sure you can.
People need help and you know how to help them.
And if I can't help them? You do the best you can.
Then you go home, get some sleep and come back the next day, and you help the next one.
I'll see you tomorrow.
Should've grabbed a jacket, it's freezing.
Feels good, I like it brisk.
Brisk? You can hang meat out here.
Can't feel my feet.
So go wait inside.
It's not like we need you to push a couple of gurneys.
Global warming? A couple of scientists should spend April in Chicago.
forehead from a broken bottle.
- vitals stable en route - What happened? - Drunken brawl at the Mariotte.
- The bitch cut me, I can't believe it.
It was a free for all.
Chairs flying, champagne bottles, We got there first, had to wait for the cops to arrive to break it up.
- Alright, take her, I'll get the next one.
- 28-yr-old female, blunt trauma to the head and superficial lacerations to the right fore-arm.
- She hurt my damn arm.
- Tiffany, you're dead! - You hear me? You're dead! - You're the one who hit me with a chair.
You wouldn't have believed this.
It was like All Star wrestling in there.
- At a wedding? - You did this at my wedding, mom! It's what you wanted all along, isn't it? To ruin everything?! - That's your mother? - Worse.
My new mother-in-law.
- Totally not true.
- Yes it is.
You were there.
No, I never pulled a guy's foley without deflating the balloon first.
Yes, you did.
And the patient was so angry he threw a basin - full of vomit at your head.
- A Foley is for collecting urine.
And what about the time you got crazy with the Dermabond, and - you glued the lady's eyes shut? - OK, that, I did do.
OK, what about the time he spent like 3 hours doing a one-inch head laceration without an X-ray? Then he discovers there was still glass in it, and he had to go back in and do it again.
Really glad you came.
Don't believe them, Reese.
- So, should we head out for a night cap? - Yeah, man, you coming? No, I have to get this young man home.
Come on.
No, no, no.
It's a school night.
- I'm not a baby.
- No, let's get you home, go to sleep.
Why don't you drop Reese off with Cleo and then come back out? - The night's young.
- I was going to try Elizabeth.
- See if they wanted to drop by.
- Great.
Elizabeth's an old friend.
No! A friend.
- So, yeah? - Maybe, maybe.
- Alright, ready? - Yeah.
- I'll meet you there.
- Good.
What were you talking about? - What? - With Kerry Weaver.
Africa, she was there last summer to visit friends.
It's gorgeous, John.
Do you want to join us for drinks? I'm a bit tired.
It's 5 AM in Paris.
How long are you staying? I leave tomorrow night.
It's hard for me to be here, John.
Alright, well, I'm glad you came.
Me too.
Can I buy you lunch tomorrow? We'll go to Shaw's, eat too much seafood.
Take a walk by the lake.
It's supposed to be a nice day.
I was thinking about Joshua.
He'd be 5, nearly 6.
I think about him almost every day.
Lunch? Maybe.
Call me in the morning.
Kem home, penile pain deformity and bruising.
Sorry I brought you in on this, I just don't feel very comfortable with him alone.
He's kind of randy.
Welcome back, Doc.
Did you bring yourself a chaperone? Mr.
Thunhurst, you're having penile pain? - Hurts like a son of a bitch, Doc.
- Let's take a look.
You're sexually active, I take it? Oh yeah, I don't need Viagra either.
The odds at the nursing home are great.
Women outlive men.
At least four to one.
- You use condom, I take it? - Oh, you betcha the big ones.
Alright, you fractured your penis.
Fractured? - There's a bone in there? - No bone, a tear in the fibrous sheet called the tuni albuginea Swelling, bruising, hematoma, standard eggplant deformity, tender to touch.
Usually hapens when the female's on top.
- Was your partner on top, sir? - What? Cowgirl position? Oh, no, no, that's not for me.
We were going at it in the nurse's station while they were running movie night.
I slipped and Mr.
Fred hid the edge of the desk.
He's going to need a retrograde uretrogram to make sure there's no damage, and surgery to drain the hematoma and repair the albuginea.
- Tony? - Surgery? - How long will I be out of action? - About six weeks.
Good lord.
What am I going to tell the girls? Paramedics have a chestpain and the MS lady's breathing is scaring the hell out of her husband.
So, you like the car? It's incredible and amazingly cool - but I can't keep it.
- Why not? Because Alex couldn't have afforded to do that.
I barely give him enough to support his iTunes habit.
He worked his ass off on that car.
- I can't take a car from you.
- It was a piece of junk.
He did all the work, we found the parts.
It still must've cost you hundreds of dollars? Thousands of dollars? Alex learned how to rebuild a car from the strut cell.
If you don't take it, you'll break his heart.
Hey, that rule-out MI is pulling up.
Talk Mr.
Manning through about what's going on with his wife and tell him I'll be in there as soon as I can.
Sam, if you're thinking about selling the Mustang, I'll give you 500 dollars cash for it.
- Go away, Jerry.
- 700 $? - Is Dr.
Gates coming? - He'll be here soon.
Because she stopped breathing and I thought she was going to.
.
and then she started up again.
Yes, her irregular breathing is completely natural.
It's all part of the dying process.
- I'm sorry? - 72 years.
I met her in the sixth grade.
It's how long we've known each other, 72 years.
Her family had move here from Nebraska because they had lost the farm during the Great Depression.
Mrs.
Ross, our teacher she said to take the empty desk next to mine That was it.
You know I never looked at another girl for 72 years.
You hear that, Mrs.
Manning? Not once, sweetheart.
Yeah, just like that, let it out.
Well this is a thoroughly disreputable looking group.
Oh my god, Elizabeth! It's good to see you.
- How are you? - Good.
Thank god you showed, you were the bait we used to lure - him out late on a school night.
- Oh come on, that's not true.
You remember Rachel.
- I've known you since you were this big.
- Yeah, everyone's been saying that.
I can imagine.
Look at you! - What can I get you? - Just a cranberry juice.
- And for you? - I'd like a Margarita, no salt.
- Can I see some ID? - Absolutely.
- So how is Ella? - She's 9 and gorgeous.
- Peter, you and Cleo are still together? - Yeah, yeah.
She's an associate professor at the University of Chicago.
- In Emergency Medicine? - Yeah, she's been doing it for about - it's her third year.
- That's wonderful.
Roger Anderson, 48, with 8 hours of infrasternal chestpain - Why did you wait so long? - I thought it would go away.
- Good vitals, no ST changes.
- Am I having a heart attack? Too soon to tell.
Unbelievable.
First she traps Donny into getting married by getting pregnant.
Right, innocent and perfect little Donny.
I have news for you, Linda, Your Donny about raped me in the backseat of his Camero.
I warned him from day one that all she was after was his paycheck and health benefits.
Oh right, his incredible salary working for the post office.
She insisted on inviting all of her inbred Kentucky relatives to the reception.
It wasn't my uncle Phil who was found pissing in the lobby fountain.
- Keep still then.
- Am I going to have a scar?! A little one.
You hear that, Tiffany? I'm gonna have a scar! Yeah, well I'll be in my once in a lifetime Carribbean honeymoon with a cast on my arm! - Tiff, are you OK? - Honey, she broke my arm.
- Donny, is that you? - Yeah, mom, it's me.
Donny, she cut me.
- I'm getting stitches in my face! - Donny, hold my hand, please.
Donny, come here.
Come here, and see what she did to me.
Donny, sweetheart? Donny, hold my hand.
- Donny, come here right now! - Donny, come here.
I want to prepare you, your mom is unconscious and the sepsis has made her breathing more difficult.
We have her on oxygen to help and morphine to relieve any pain.
So she's dying? Yeah.
Soon? Probably.
Would you look at that.
How much he loves her.
I never could understand how he put up with that woman.
Tough as nails.
Hard on him, hard on us.
Then she gets sick and he takes care of her for all these years.
I would've left her by the side of the road somewhere.
You know what I was doing in the car the whole way down from Milwaukee? Crying.
I cried my eyes out.
Beating myself up, trying to remember what it was we fought about last time we talked.
Isn't that something? As if it mattered anymore.
Do you mind if I eat this last piece of cake? - No, knock yourself out.
- Thank you.
ER.
Yeah.
What's up? I know, Soldier Field.
No, Tommy's going to be there too.
Yeah Mom, did I wake you? Yeah.
Oh, who does Leno have on? No, I'm working tonight.
How was your day? Yeah, they got me a cake.
Chocolate.
Did that crazy grandson of yours tell you what he got me for my birthday? A car.
No.
So, you wanna come and see what a real doctor does for a living? Oh yes, a doctor in an underfunded, over-utilised insane asylum, that passes for an urban medical center.
- I'm in.
- Oh, no it's very late.
Don't start.
How will you get back to the hotel? - I'll take a cab.
- Come on, she's not a baby anymore.
We'll make sure she gets back safe.
- Are you coming, Kerry? - No, I've got an early flight.
- Peter? - Nah, 7 AM rounds.
That's a cab.
- It was good to see you.
- Alright.
Bye guys! Ready? Hey, our flight leaves at 9! Car will pick us up at the hotel at 7.
Kids.
She's not a kid anymore.
Her mother would kill me if she knew I'd let Carter roll off with her to the ER in the middle of the night on a field trip.
Want me to get you a cab? No, I've got a rental car.
Alright, do you want me to walk you? Um, sure, thanks.
So, is Cleo good? Yeah, really good.
- Do you have any more children? - No, no, no.
- What about you? - What about me? - Do you have any more kids? - No, no.
Are you in a relationship? - No.
- Dating? No, not really.
I've got a 9-yr-old at home and a busy career.
Maybe when Ella's a little older I could um, but.
.
So this is me.
As usual, there was a problem with the rental reservation.
It's all they had.
It's - It's big.
- Yeah.
Well you know, if you need to transport an infantery for any reason.
.
Yeah, or a rap star's entourage.
Anyway it was really nice seeing you again, Peter.
Yeah.
- Take care.
Jerry, you remember Rachel? Yeah, I heard you were around.
- Hi, remember me? - No way! There's a spirit of comradery around here, it's kind of what makes this place work.
Everybody helps everybody else out.
- Oh god, maggots.
- Tracy, this is Rachel.
She's thinking of a career in emergency medicine.
Run, don't walk, to radiology.
Trust me, you don't ever want to have to do this.
I'm the chosen one, known as Uhdia.
- 10 of Haldol and restraints! - no one believes it is me, I shall have eternal life.
- How did the opening go? - Good.
Sorry you missed it.
You know work.
Can't wait to see it when it's finished.
Give me a call.
I'll give you a tour.
My god, look at you.
Will you be around for a while? - Sure.
- Don't you dare to leave before we get a chance to catch up.
Haldol: miracle drug.
Laverne, what've you got? Mr.
Meyer here polished off a few too many bottles of fine Burgundy fell off the curb in front of Spiaggia, broke his ankle, hit his head.
- Waiting on CT and ortho - Mind if I take over that IV? Sure, no problem.
- Ever done one of these before? - No.
OK, we use an angiocatheter with a 16 gage needle.
It's a large one, but you need that in case there's bleeding and you have to transfuse him.
What you wanna do, is pull that skin tight so that the vein doesn't roll, go in low and voila.
Once you're in the vein, you just pull this little gizmo out and tape it down.
Gates, is it my imagination or is Dr.
Carter who is not on duty, by the way, in Trauma 1 with a patient, demonstrating IV placement to a college student? What?! Never mind.
Jerry Why is Dr.
Carter performing medical procedures on our patients? Because he's a doctor? Excuse-me.
Perfect timing.
That poor bastard's son and daughter.
.
Marjorie Manning died.
So That's it? Can I stay with her a little longer? Of course.
Stay as long as you'd like.
Yeah.
Pizza! What is that? Meatlover's special.
You want a piece? You better call a cardiologist and schedule your first angioplasty.
It's good.
- How old are you? - 37.
Yeah, make an appointment for three years from now.
You keep eating like that, - No, come on! - It's true.
You're right, they don't get it.
- Who are you? - Oh hi, I'm Dr.
Susan Lewis.
I used to work here.
What is it with men and their penises? Yeah, I've been trying to figure that one out for years.
- Amen to that.
- My trouble-urinating-guy? Turns out he has erectile disfunction and he can't afford Viagra.
So he takes a tube of bathroom cob, the kind you use around the tub, - and squeezes it into his urethra.
- It's not a religious talisman.
Get that thing in a Biohazard bag.
Police brought in an altered old woman, found her on the street wearing one of our bracelets.
It had your name on it.
- How's her temperature? - Core is 96.
- My name is Beverly.
- Yes, I know.
She was here yesterdag.
Her daughter's name and number should be here on the chart somewhere.
Martha or Mary Margaret, that's right.
She's going to be wondering where you are.
Margaret is a lovely girl.
Quiet and thoughtful.
- How's your wrist, any pain? - I broke my wrist.
- I know.
I fixed it yesterday.
- I fell out of a tree.
Margaret was telling me to go higher and I fell.
Really? Margaret was telling you to go higher? She's Margaret's my sister.
Just a lovely girl.
You really shouldn't leave your yard, it's not safe.
You have such strong hands.
Warm and strong.
You can tell a lot about a man by his hands.
Yes, m'am.
Where's the daughter? She went to call the mortuary, I think.
Thanks.
For what? For everything you did with Alex.
I really appreciate it.
It's a little cold out here to be playing basketball, no? - Just trying to stay awake.
- Oh yeah? Yep, I've got a um important phone call to make in a couple of hours.
I'm afraid that if I close my eyes, I'll sleep through it.
Don't you own an alarm clock? Can't take chances? - Love or money.
- What? Well, if it's that important, it can only be one of two things; love or money.
Love! Hey! Put a towel around that guy, there's women in there! I thought streakers went out with disco and the Ford administration.
I'm going across the street.
You guys want a microwaved burrito? - Beef and beef are pretty good.
- I'm fine.
- I'll pass.
The guy's a culinary freak of nature.
Nice.
- Where's your little ward? - Who, Rachel? The women stole her from me an hour ago.
Are you coming back, boss? - What? - You're hanging around here enough, Pick up some shifts.
Get paid for it.
I don't know.
Maybe.
Tony, I need you.
Those transport guys from Mercy finally showed up for your alcohol poisoning girl.
As soon as they tried to move her, she groaning and thrashing around.
Is she responsive? Didn't stay around long enough to find out, went looking for you.
- What's happening? - Response to stimuli.
- What does that mean? - Stacey, can you hear me? Stacey, you're in a hospital.
I'm Dr.
Gates.
You were at a party last night, you had a little too much to drink.
Please, is she alright? I need another CT guys, it's going to take a little while.
- How long? - An hour, maybe two.
- I'll call dispatch.
- Doctor! She's responding but not in a purposeful way.
It may be a sign of lack of oxygen to the brain.
We're going to order another CT, make sure there's no swelling in the brain.
- But she'll be OK? - It's too early to tell if her mental status will improve from what we see now.
- But it could? - Maybe in time.
- CT can take her now.
- OK, good.
- Can we go with her? - Of course.
My first ER rotation, they sent me to a jail ward, to do a rectal on this prisoner with a GI bleed.
So this guy is very sketchy, and he's kind of a leech but I don't want to seem like a wimp, So I close the door behind him to give him some privacy, I put on my gloves, lube up my fingers, and go ahead with the exam.
When I'm done, I go to the door to leave and it's locked! It's a jail ward, the doors don't open from the inside.
So here I was with this creepy convict guy, who was pulling up his pants and asking me if it was as good for me as it was for him.
It took me 10 minutes of banging on that door to finally get a nurse's attention to let me out.
The guy in exam 2 is coughing red snappers, be sure to wear a mask.
- What's a red snapper? - TB.
- Tuberculoses? - Yep.
My first week in the ER, I forgot Haleh's name and called her 'nurse' As in: "Nurse, can you get me some more four by fours?" - Bad idea.
- Nurses hate being called nurse.
- Why? - Maybe because we actually have names.
Or because we know a lot more than med students.
- More than the interns.
- And more than most doctors.
So anyway, Haleh decides to punish me by paging me for Tylenol orders every 20 minutes.
- I would've paged you every 10.
- Every 5.
My first year in med school, the dean comes in to our very first lecture and he says "I want you to look to your left and to your right.
" "A year from now, one of you will be gone.
" The dean told us that old chestnut when I was in med school too.
- Was it true? - No, but it scared us.
I mean, as if we weren't worried enough already.
- Hey, what're you doing here? - I couldn't sleep.
I just thought I'd come in and catch up on some charts.
Maybe check up on a baby in the NICU I helped deliver yesterday.
