Time in the ER...not

Sunday I got attacked by a patient. He grabbed my clothes, hit me in the right temporal area and kneed me in the abdomen. I saw stars for a moment when he hit me in the head. The charge nurse filled out an incident report and wanted me to go to the ER. I chose not to but I did take tylenol (generic) for the instant headache I had. The adrenaline was pumping and it took me awhile to feel normal again. I don't blame the patient. It was hard to go back in the room though. The nurse gave the patient meds for agitation and the rest of the shift was uneventful.

More later....
