The three best complaints, as noted on the triage sheets, on my last ER shift:

  1. Bleeding from down there. 12 year-old girl, no history of menstrual bleeding. Mother can't figure out what it is.

  2. We're going on vacation next week. I just want to make sure my kids aren't going to get sick. (Registered 4 children to be seen)

  3. Left lower extremity pain for 20 years. Just wanted to get checked.

Honorable mention, just because of how common it is:

  • 18 month old boy with temp of 100.0. Received immunizations yesterday. Taking po well, normal behavior.
