When it does come time to share the details regarding the main reason you came to the ED, don’t be embarrassed! Trust me, we’ve seen and heard it all. Some of the more memorable scenarios include a woman who slipped in the shower while cleaning knives, a man who accidentally ate a rat, and an individual who lodged a toy figurine up his nostril—at age 28.
Seriously, there are very few things that surprise us. (If you manage to do so, kudos to you!) Speak up so we can get you the care you need.
