poplitea: surgery (Default)
So, I started on the emergency and trauma rotation last week and today was my first trauma patient! 50-something male, intoxicated on unknown substance, having thrown himself (naked from the waist down) out from a two-story window and landed in a row of bushes.

Absolutely covered with dirt and leaves when he arrived, very cold, right hip dislocated and abrasions all over. I did not get a very good overview of what was happening cause I had to run in and out whenever they fired the x-ray, so... Patient was adequately cared for, but I personally could have done a lot better :( but this is how it's gonna be while i'm pregnant I suppose...
