(I am an ER nurse. During the late morning, a man
comes in With his son, who has a concussion. The
policy is that a concussion patient isn’t allowed to sleep
at all. The nurses and staffmake sure the boy stays
awake and notice that he keeps nodding ojj‘ a little too
Me: “Excuse me, but why is your son so tired?"
Father: "Oh, he got his concussion in the wee hours
of the morning and Ijust knew that he couldn’t fall
asleep. So he’s been awake since then.”
Me: “Why didn't you bring him in here right away?"
Father: "I didn't know if you‘d be open that early.”
Me: ’“I'his is the ER! We’re always open!"
