    Call for a Ride Home A man was seen in the emergency department and discharged. As he walked out, he went to the triage nurse and asked for a taxi voucher for a ride home. When she told him that would not be possible, he went to the phone, called the AT&T operator and asked…

  • Maple Date Cookies

    This week, I tried a Pillsbury recipe for Maple Date Cookies. They were pretty good and the staff in the ED polished off a triple batch. As I was wondering how to make them better, I realized that, if I wanted a maple date cookie, I would take the recipe I previously posted for Maple…

  • Hazmat Cookies

    At work the other night, I grabbed a plastic bag to put some left over cookies in  and this is what I came up with:

  • Dr. Jasmine’s New Tad Bag

    I have made several bags with zippers but it is a pain so I usually tell people “no” when I am asked for a bag with a zipper. When Jasmine asked me, I said “no” then came home and made one for her. Here she is, smiling appreciatively. Also some other pictures of the bag.…

    As Edna was waiting for her bed upstairs, I sat down and talked with her for a minute. First, we talked about her medical condition and what she was to expect once she was admitted to the hospital. We then wandered into a more general conversation. I asked her how long she had been coming…

      Eric is one of our physician assistants. He brought in some blondies the other night and I asked him for the recipe. This is the first time I have taken a bar cookie recipe and made cookies from it. They turned out so well, I am inspired to try more. Feel free to use…

    Lucky or Unlucky? A 16-year-old girl was flown in by helicopter after being shot in the chest. The bullet went down trough her lung, diaphragm, spleen and a rib. It ended up just under the skin of her flank. She needed an operation and would have a tough time recovering but, when you think of…
