In the midst of the busiest of busy days ever, this little germ pops into the ER for evaluation of
"I can't feel my toes".
As this was a person in her late 20's, I was not concerned about anything truly serious until I saw that she was wearing a post op shoe. (AKA, Ugly Shoes: sizes small, medium and large).
"What happened to your foot?"
"Well I broke it a couple of weeks ago, and that is fine. I was shoveling out my car from the snow, though, and now I can't feel my toes. The officer who helped me thought I should get it checked".
She apparently did so in the last 20 minutes while wearing a sock and the post op shoe. On one of the coldest days.
"I see. Is your sock wet?"
"yes, I didn't have time to change it".
"Ah. Well, here is a pair of dry hospital fuzzy socks and a warm blanket. Take off the post op shoe and the wet sock. It is about a 3 hour wait".
For the amusement of Fil, I documented the following:
