Labor and Delivery

One call for a woman in labor. The nurse was a real treat. She wouldn't tell us anything about the patient. When I asked what was going on she responded, "well, she's obviously pregnant!" Yeah, like that's a problem. I gathered from the patient that she was 38 weeks pregnant, and thought she might be in labor. It turns out that she was having very few contractions that weren't regular. We took her directly to the labor and delivery floor, where, after checking her, the nurse said that she would be going home. Nice.

We had a shorness of breath, the usual psych patients, a guy that got stabbed in the eye, and a couple of BLS transfers. Nothing that great.
