I was standing in triage at Grady at four o'clock this morning when a car pulled up with three men inside who had been shot multiple times each. One of the patients being triaged for a car accident (obviously a tourist) dropped her wad and started screaming, "Where the _____ am I? Where have you taken me? What the ______ kind of city is this?" Her paramedic looked over at her and smiled.
Since 11 AM I have logged 9 hours of Continuing Education Credit. This of course means that I am working at a pace of 3.6 Hours per Hour. This translates roughly into "Tim is working at 88 mph with an engaged flex capacitor"
