Dr John Celes

The Emergency Room


Here comes the ambulance
With another patient anew;
The emergency room staff are ready
With life-saving gadgets in view!

Is it another accident?
Is it a case of poisoning?
Is it a heart attack or an
Acute surgical emergency?

The casualty works night and day;
Triage has to done without delay;
Diagnosis must be fast in some way;
Resuscitation is prime, come what may.

The golden hour is important
Check for the ABC
Look for the vital parameters,
If you want to save the life!

A hospital’s busiest place,
Where life can ebb away,
If we do not race,
To salvage with great pace!

Where none can ever wait;
Stretcher-trolley stands at the gate;
Personnel are ever-ready on any date;
Waste no time or it will be too late!

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
