Put the gun down.
So there are some really cool things you get to see when you are a nurse. Okay let me rephrase that when you are a nurse you think you see cool things. This is one of those things. So we get a shotgun wound patient. Sound exciting? Well it would be in our rural area since that doesn’t happen often. The city I am sure its and every night episode. How ever not only is this a 12 gauge shot gun there is not “real bullets” just bean bags. Apparently a suspect was holding a gun. Got two warning shots with a 12 gauge shot gun. Patient comes in with it still embedded in his leg. The cool part was he was wearing sweat pants and the sweat pants when inside his leg. The pants acted like a catcher mitt and kept the bean bag from exploding in his leg. Freaking cool. Not for him but to watch it being removed. Yea I know I am sick. But hey when the cops say put the weapon down, they mean business.
