19. A gentleman came into our ER last week...

upset, homeless over two years, has been in two days of biblical downpours. for some reason police and medics involved, brought to ER.Apparently police were called on the street because he snapped and said he'd be better off dead. He is sick and tired of homelessness, sick and tired of being cold. he only wanted a shower and some sleep like a normal person, in a bed with a blanket and no rain falling on him.

The nurse acted like he was carrying plague and was unreasonably rude.

What do we do? These are human beingsat the end of their rope, and some medical personnel treat them like shit simply because they are dirty, angry (I don't know why on earth why they'd be angry) cursing, yelling, mad at the world, hurting in more ways than I coud know.
