Trick or Treat

Sometimes it feels like every night in the ER is Halloween.

Wearing her way-too-tight shirt costume, a patient walked up to triage:

Pt: "I feel weak and dizzy."

RN: "When was the last time you had anything to eat?"

Pt: "Yesterday."

RN: "Why so long ago?"

Pt: "I was too lazy to make anything."

RN: (eye role)

The patient was given a box lunch, which she dropped in her extra large purse, and promptly walked out of the waiting room.

Maybe we should just leave a bowl of candy on our doorstep?
