I started my new rotation last week at St. Vincent's emergency room. So far I would have to say its the best of the previous 6 rotations. I worked on St. Patrick's night; it wasn't as busy as you would have thought. There was plenty of drunken foolishness which led people to the ER with facial lacerations and injured knees. Nothing too serious, though. I really enjoy the orthopaedic cases. The orthopaedic resident is going to let me aspirate the next knee effusion. I'm working 3 12 hour shifts a week so hopefully I'll be able fly home to see Olivia and Paige.
