My sister Whitney reminded me about this emergency roomism in a comment to my posting "The Casket".
More than one patient has asked me about whether they should "sit on the guernsey, or lie down". I chuckle to myself and think, "if you can lie down on a cow, more power to ya". But whatever you do, you'll be riding that cow down to X-ray, so make yourself comfortable…
***Emergency Roomism: Guernsey
Guernsey = gurney
