Johnny Gage

Eight hours in the city. Came into work, they had no ALS house bag for me, so they ended up giving me an empty old orange fishing tackle box and I stocked it with meds. I was hoping for a big scene call so I could pretend I was Johnny Gage on Emergency, but I never got the chance to really use it.

Started out with a round trip transfer. We initially took the patient to radiology, but they had no record of him. Well, it turns out he was supposed to go for radiation at the cancer center, and they had just booked it wrong, so we eventually got him there. Later did two calls, a woman who fell stepping off a bus and an Alzhiemer's patient with chest pain. Easy eight hour day.
