A Not So Pregnant Patient

Here is one of our most recent patients:

Not what you were expecting, huh? He obviously was not in labor, but he came in for some "mercy care" anyway. This motorcycle driver had been in an accident that day and had quite the gash on his elbow...

We gave him a hard time about being at "Mercy Maternity Center" and not being pregnant, but we sutured him anyway (besides, we didn't really mind.) :D

He seemed to be in a lot of pain and was yelling louder than the three women who were in labor at the time. (Don't worry...we *did* give him anesthetics.)

But, I think he was enjoying getting his picture taken (as were his friend and our guard). :D
