Triage: Shoulder pain, can you figure it out?

Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

True story. I had one of my nurses ask me to see a pt in the ambulance bay...she said something to the effect of "you gotta see this".

I walk over and there is a very calm guy sitting on the gurney with a 3 ft long hedge trimmer blade lodged in his right shoulder. There were 4 barbs in the flesh of the anterior shoulder to his anterior chest. He swung it too far an it got him.

I walked up to the gurney and said "Hi sir, what seems to be the problem today"?  I laughed, he laughed, the staff laughed....good times.
