Sometimes I find a blog that I just like

Posted by Charles II on February 6, 2012

(in this case, because the blog owner Liked my post “Are there no workhouses? Are there no prisons?“, and I was curious enough to track back.)

TorontoEmerg, which bills itself as:

…the mostly fictional hallucinations of an Emergency Department RN somewhere in the Greater Toronto Area. If you think I am writing about you, I am not. Because you were fabulous. Because you were the best patient I ever had, and after a short stay went home cured, well and grateful. Maybe. Who knows? (See hallucinations, above.) All patient details have been changed to conceal identity, and are mostly figments of stories mating with other figments to produce a semi-coherent narrative. Which is to say, Truths found in this blog are literary and artistic rather than factual and real. I trust I make myself clear.

If you have a few minutes, you might want to watch this video, accurately billed as “Very cool and very disturbing.” about… well, just watch it.

Admit it: nurses are just plain jake.

    Please explain the meaning of jake.

      Yeah, the video is something else, isn’t it, jo?

      “jake” means “ok” or “fine.” In this context, it’s understated and therefore genuine praise.

    Thanks for the shout out —- appreciate it and the kind words. Curiously enough, I’m doing a lot of blogging about a nurse named Amanda Trujillo in your part of the world, who was fired for advocating for her patient.
