ER Mom's law

Newton has gravity - what goes up must come down. I hear by propose a new law, call it ER Mom's Law: What goes in must come out.

So please do not come to L&D at 4 am complaining that you're leaking if you had sex about an hour ago. Stuff goes in, stuff runs out. There's a reason it's called the wet spot.

Here are you at age 3 with your cousin. And now, you are an amazing 12 year old. I am so proud of the young lady that you have become. Happy birthday, Boo. I love you.

Funny story

So I was operating post-call. I had a late night delivery, so I decided to sleep in an extra couple of minutes and forgo my morning shower. I got dressed as usual and walked into the OR. Now, I never wear perfume because there are people sensitive to smell and I don't want to precipitate an attack.

The scrub was next to the door, arranging her instruments. "Um, you smell good! What perfume are you wearing?"

"Baby powder scented deodorant."

If you are a FP doc, and you are seeing a patient for irregular periods, AND you send me your office note...

noting the date of LMP is useful. Really. You had seen her multiple times in the last 6 months...nowhere is documented an LMP.

Pinworms is NOT a reason to show up on L&D after midnight at a hospital your OB doesn't practice at.

Thank you.

FHTs are fine. You can call your own doctor in the morning to deal with this. An extra 8 hours won't kill you...since no pharmacy around here is open anyway.
