Bath Salts? 02:00 Black male brought by ambulance for intoxication and weird behavior. Pt was out drinking and suddenly had gone down to a fetal position growling and not responding in a human manner to any questions from his friends 02:15 stepped outside the room to get some meds and equipment I needed for this patient. 02:17 turn around and see that patient had taken his clothes off (still wearing underwear) and was standing by the sliding glass door fixated in me with a frozen gaze. 02:18 I enter the room demanding that patient would return to his stretcher (many years in the trauma team have given me a commanding ability to de-escalate most situations) but this time… With a savage growl the black individual attacked me, the years in the military help me avoid his mouth trying to bite me and hit him in the ribs in a way that had sent many men to the ground before. Not this guy, he turns in mid air like a cougar, bounces from the stretcher and jump at me again, same maneuver, this time I use more force, but same effect…nothing. This guy continues to look at me like I’m a deli sandwich and other ER nurses start to enter the room. It took 12 of us to hold him down for long enough for leather restraints to me applied, face net and a titanic amount of anti-psychotics and sedatives to be given 02:55 Patient is finally out 03:20 pt moved to safe room n psych ward heavily medicated, and tied down. Notes: not one time this guy tried to punch, slap, kick or head butt me. All he was trying to do was to bite. I’m really freaked out.
