Put a plug in it — Snotfest 2013

If the patient could only see what is behind the mask

If the patient could only see what is behind the mask

It’s 2am.  I just spent 20 minutes putting a lady’s leg back together. Well, the skin on her leg.  It was a big, ugly, Z-shaped cut.  Not a big deal, except I have to wipe my nose every 30 seconds because Jake shared his cold with me.  Copious volumes of snot are flowing from my nostrils, and there’s nothing I can do about it.  So what do you do when you are wearing sterile gloves, and your germ invested snot insists on dripping into the sterile field?  You put a plug in it.  Worked great for about 10 minutes, and then all snot broke loose.  Finished up with a pool of snot wedged between my chin and the mask.  Yum.

ER Snotfest. Put a plug in it!

I like how your ID card has Jake’s picture on it. Cute! Glad to see an ER post every now and then. Your bike posts make me feel slow. And bloated.
