This is perhaps the most anatomically awesome thank-you card we have ever received.

Male motorcyclist involved in accident….and I think you can see from looking at the card exactly1what his injuries were:

“To all the emergency staff who worked on ‘M’. To the Ambo’s and all the helpful nurses for saving our father/husband/me….
‘E’: Thought you would recognize him better with the diagram on the front”

For someone to take the time to prepare a card like this is so appreciated by the ED staff.
Thanks to M and his family!

    • G Boucle said: This is not surprising at all to me! Nurses can and do bully patients, I was on the brunt of this after a surgery with spinal fusion on 5 segments!
