    Today someone mentioned the name of a scroller (frequent flyer) who hasn’t been in the ER for a while … and sure enough, this patient showed up. Should the staff member who mentioned the name be killed?

    We’ve heard of Friday the 13th, full moon, and using the “Q” word … what other superstitions do you believe in?

    Avoid the “‘Q” word is my Mantra.
    You are too funny, Jason.

    Seems to me that when a patient has a sudden burst of energy or they have their ” best day yet.” I’m coding them not too long after that comment is made. Not every time, but often enough that the hairs on my arms stand at attention when someone has their “best day yet.”

    Several places I’ve worked, both in the hospital and nursing homes, have said that when a patient is close to the end, you tie a knot in the corner of their sheet so they won’t pass on your shift.
