No, I Can't Fly
Sunday, November 11, 2012
I was at work this evening - chatted briefly with a patient, but when I started to leave his room, I got my foot caught in the cable from his hand to the monitor. Face plant! "Ow. Hope nobody saw this. Hope I can get up. OW!" I'm in the Emergency Department - of course, everyone saw it. The patient tried to get out of bed to help me. The patient in the next room came out. Mutiple staff came from the center station to get me up. Had to check in & get seen.
Minor injuries (R elbow, L knee, R cheek) If I hadn't landed with my face on my outstretched arm, I'd have at least a big bruise on my face. Took the midnight to 8A part off.
