Come in IV form?

Attention ER nurses : New cure found for abdominal pain!!!

Peanut M&Ms!!
It is amazing that my patient who was crying in triage and rocking back and forth with pain was found munching on M&Ms on her gurney under a blanket and when reminded she was NPO and in the "worst pain" of her life she explained "but these really help I have to finish them or the pain will come back."

That is why I love this job.. I learn something new every day. And to think the cure was there all this time... in the vending machine down the hall.. I wonder what other diseases I could cure with $1.25 in quarters.
