Bomb Squad at HUMC ER

Hi, it’s Mystery Guest here filling in for 411 who is out of the office right now.

He called me to say that there is something going down at St. Mary’s (HUMC). Reports of a psychotic patient with a possible explosive device in the emergency room.

I am not as good at posting on this site, so I can’t put a picture.

Meant to say “it”. Didn’t IT. Sorry for the typo.

[quote comment=”57327″][quote comment=”57325″]Okay, so from the Jersey Journal article, the kid was building a bomb out of a bottle of turpentine and some wiring, so his mother drove the kid AND THE BOMB to the hospital, and handed the bomb to a nurse?

Suffice it to say that mother is probably NOT a brain surgeon.[/quote]

No, I think she was brilliant. It got their attention, didn’t i? Got him seen, and probably got him treatment. I’ve seen suicidal kids on Medicaid returned from the ER after nothing but being held in a waiting room for a few hours, miraculously ‘cured’ of their urges, at least according to the psychiatrists who I am certain saw them for at least 20 seconds. So I’m guessing there’s a substantial backstory of this kid not being given proper treatment.

St marys sucked as far back as anybody i know can remember, so this is nothing new. The only thing new is the name– you take a pile of shit and no matter what you do to it,its still a pile of shit.
