So as you know I work in the ER and I LOVE my job! I can't imagine doing anything else or in any other department. One of the cool things about the ER is that you always see new stuff. So tonight I was at triage and the security guard got up and said they were just alerted about a "Code Orange" which is hospital lingo for a bomb threat. Apparently someone within the hospital called 911 and reported a bomb. We were all kind of laughing about it but just a little leary about the whole thing. Anyway a little while later cop after cop starts coming through our door and we found out that that "call within the hospital" was made from one of our patients by one of our employee phones she borrowed! Needless to say there was no bomb, just a stupid patient who thought it would be funny and was mad about being in the ER. Little did she know she would be taken to jail and charged with a possible felony!
That's all for today. Stay tuned for future editions of "The ER Chronicles"
