  2. I had a similar situation - GSW to buttocks. Patient kept squirming. I finally told him to hold still and that it would take awhile because it was a "bigg a$$ wound". I usually introduce myself as first name, last name, "the night guy" because I'm the only "provider" of any kind in the hospital at night - either in the ED or in the IP unit. However, if I'm about to do a lac repair, I introduce myself as "your seamstress".

  8. Any PA worth there salt who says they have never had regrets about not going to Med school is lying. I can tell you I regret it. As an experienced ER PA, it infuriates me that I am handling the exact same cases the MD handles, I am intubating, RSI, chest tubes, central lines, consulting with specialists, etc..etc...etc....
