Chief Complaint of the Night

This little nugget of joy comes to you from a coworker's triage notes from last night:
HPI: Pt c/o right hand pain x 7 minutes after reaching into vending machine in waiting room and briefly getting her hand stuck. No bleeding or swelling noted.

Yeah, I know. What was she doing in the waiting room in the first place? Dude. That's like a philosophical chicken or egg type of question.


  1. More importantly, did he get the cheetos he was seeking?

  2. Discharged with a scrip for percocet x15, cab voucher, and replacement $1 for vending machine, right? Anything less is just poor nursing care.

  3. Those a-holes probably just gave her Vicodin. The injustice!
