ED quote of the day:

80 something year old woman, mistakenly sent from nursing home to Trauma Center ED for psych evaluation when she should have been sent to Psych ED. Completely lucid, displaying no signs of dementia...

Patient: Overly detailed story about how some other guy was getting in her personal space... "I don't like it when other people push me around, so I told him "You pick up that towel or I'll punch you in the face". So he stomped on the towel to spite me, and so I punched him in the face.
