Killer King

This guy comes in as a code yellow, secondary to multiple GSWs to the head. We jump thru all the hoops, and do the million dollar trauma activation. He's a teenager. Upon arrival his brain tissue is on the back board. His pupils are fixed and dilated. He arrests a couple of days later in the TICU (trauma ICU).

His family blames us....*us*...for his death.

"You guys killed him!! Killer King, killer King"

Look asshole, maybe you should be pissed-off at the guy who...pointed the gun at your brother, and pulled the trigger. That's who 'killed him.'

Geez.

It's not hard to have a high death toll when your patients arrive to your front door already dead!! Maybe "Killer Compton" is more accurate.
