Aftermath of a Code Crimson at my hospital the other night. My friend works in the ER and took this photo and sent me the following:
“Car rolled three times, became on fire. Transported to us for intubation then supposed to be transferred to ________ [higher acuity hospital omitted for HIPPA reasons] but then she coded. She was a mess. Blood everywhere. Bones sticking out of the skin. Adipose tissue out. Depressed frontal skull fracture. Mid forties. She died.”
Anonymous asked: Keep on going!! Most of my instructors are lifelong students, and I aspire to be one too! I too, am settings sights on probably MPH rather than NP. My goal is to work in acute for a while, then move onto more community/population-based preventative care and education. Let's both hard on our goals!
Awwww, thank you, anon! (: I agree, let’s both work hard!
Situs inversus (also called situs transversus or oppositus) is a congenital condition in which the major visceral organs are reversed or mirrored from their normal positions. The normal arrangement is known as situs solitus.
Had a patient before with this. Interesting. Seems like something important you’d want to pass on in report, but no, had to find this out on my own about the patient after some surprise on my part!
