Response to Merlot (Reply #35)

36. I debated about whether or not to include that. My son knows that many

of the patients who show up in his ER are bonafide patients with nowhere else to go. He has no problem with them and usually they do need medical attention, which they get. His frustration comes from the repeat patients (he knows some of them by first name) who come in only wanting drugs, which are prescribed in small doses. Some will use ambulances as a means to get to the hospital and expect rides home. Then there are the frivolous patients (true story, a man came in with splinters in his thumb). I'm sure my son exaggerates some, but he's a good man and a solid Dem--just a tired one sometimes.
