Flavour of the Day

Anyone who works in emergency or primary care must have noticed that more often than not days turn out to have themes. My last ED shift was CHF themed: nearly everybody who came in had some amount of CHF, and needed a little lasix. I also get UTI days (usually with a few simple UTIs, a couple of folks with stones, a pyelo, and one really old person with a honking urosepsis), and laceration days (usually bank holiday weekends when everybody’s mowing/fixing cars/DIYing).

Today was an odd one:

The elderly pregnancy theme day. One after another, ladies over 37 have come in to say to me: I haven’t had a period, I’m throwing up, I have a positive pregnancy test, and OH MY GOD.

Wild.
