I am an EMT student at the moment. One Sunday night I was doing one of my required ED internship rotations and a 19 y.o. female was brought in with a stab wound to the lower back. When the medics brought her in the front desk staff recorded her c/c as a back lac and sat her in the waiting room until the medics reiterated the urgency of her problem. The next WTF moment came when the detective was questioning the patient. The reason for the stabbing…someone took her seat on the couch.
