Lessons from the ER

Courtesy of the folks at the Actuarial Outpost, here's a thread from another discussion forum, one focused on student doctors. "Things doctors learn from working the ER."

It's so funny, you'll have trouble stopping reading. It's a remarkable combination of patients too stupid to know they shouldn't be in the ER and patients too stupid to know they should have gone to the ER years ago, with a liberal sprinkling of drugs and items that never should have been introduced into a human body.

One witty observation, and so true:
Why is it that the worst, most ungrateful patients always seem to have an attorney on retainer ("You'll hear from MY lawyer in the morning"), but can't find a dentist?
