BioMed Tools in the ER Room 4 - Blue Team

there’s no doc in the ER

biomed tools
highly sensitive
better be right
fetal heart tones
recognized by all
ringing on the PA

squash
wow
swish
wow,wow
smash
wow,wow,wow

there’s no doc in the ER but the nurse can check the baby

proactive care
out the window
sound the alarm
i need a doc today

neck sore enough
to fall off your head
must be a lymph node

viruses looming
in everyone’s cough
it’s the PA who is
lifetime certified
today upon
termination

there’s no doc in the ER but the PA prescribes a high tech high class germ annihilator

once upon a time
there were docs in the ER
and if you broke your arm
you were in the right hands

now they wander the halls
aimlessly
with Alzheimer patients
waiting for someone
to blame
because they got
the wrong lunch

there’s no doc in the ER charge the triage nurse it’s the place to go for primary care

***************

I fell the other day, and thought I might have broken my hand, went to ER, and you know what, the fact that you will see a doc while there is now a big fairy tale. Actually, I didn’t think I broke my hand, my physical therapist refuse to touch me until he was sure there was no fraction. He said he did not want to cause vascular damage. So he made me go. But either way, I went, and that’s what I saw this past week.
