Another busy ED, as seen with this ambulance waiting for their turn to unload their patient. The security guard was the same from when I dropped at the ICU here!
He immediately recognized me and stood up asking how I was. Told him these were from the ED - he was super excited. Really excited. He went over and tapped himself into behind triage and told one of the nurses who I was and what I was doing.
He had me come up to the plexiglass and I handed over the cards, explained my usual spiel. She was rather surprised. Asked if they were to share them with the ICU and I said "no, these are all for you folks down here." Recognizing they were busy, I said my goodbye.
The security guard caught up with me on the way out and said "good on you man." I just thanked him for what he was doing to keep all of them safe in there.
