The drunk patient…….another one…..

Posted on Updated on

Had to perform stitches on a patient who had multiple stab wounds, and whose only concern was getting back to the ‘liquor’.

The patient kept moving around, forgetting where he was, telling me about his plans to beat the crap out of the guy who stabbed him.

This was a difficult patient to suture and just really annoying.

The sad part was that the patient’s girlfriend was actually outside waiting to drive him home……..how utterly embarrassing…
