Right now I'm kind of in the middle of a mess with night shifts every day this past weekend, Advanced Cardiac Life Support Class, Weekly Conference, and Advanced Trauma Life Support Class this week. Tomorrow I go to class from 8 am -2:30 pm, and follow that up with a shift from 4 pm-midnight.
The last patient I saw on Sunday morning was my first GSW (gun shot wound)! Well, I guess maybe it wasn't legitimate as it was a shot from a BB gun to the penis, but I'm still counting it. I kind of felt bad for the guy, as he came in at 6 am after being transferred from a rural hospital to get a consult with one of our urologists. It turned out to be a pretty minor flesh wound, but I got a laugh from my attending when I commented about it being "one shot in a million." Lesson learned: beers and BB guns don't mix.
I think I'm really going to like it here.
