Type 2, Their partner drinks .gets depressed beats them up they come in to get patched up. Type 3, They have a genuine medical problem but see the ER staff as friends/company they come in for a chat/reassurance they have a cuppa they get sent home. Type 4, The alcoholic/junkie enough said!!I really enjoy working in ER you genuinely do see life in all it's extremes, stages and forms, all mixed together in one great big pot!
