Death Becomes Him February 23, 2009

In the last twenty-four hours, Sam has come way too close to FBA. That’s Foreign Body Aspiration. Last evening, he tried to eat a used Band-aid (his own) and this evening it was a rubber band. The office kind, not the hair kind. And I have absolutely no idea where it came from. Both times it was under the radar of parental supervision. He is quick. Tooooo quick.

I think we need to get rid of everything in the house. Or get him a muzzle. That’d certainly be easier.

    My fastest admit to discharge was a foreign body. They were on the floor 11 minutes (and they had admitted the kid as a FULL admit, even though he had d/c orders right there, so I had to do the full PHP). I hope Sam doesn’t break any records like that.

    I can’t believe he was a full admit! Those PHPs are awful. Have you switched to computerized charting yet?

    I promise that I won’t take him on an unnecessary field trip to the ER. Unless we’re in Madison and you’re visiting. Then I will request a full admission to your floor — just so we can hang out while we “fill out the PHP.”
