A few New Year’s Eve “Don’ts”

My annual New Year’s Eve DON’Ts from a 30 year plus veteran ER Nurse (yes, these are all related to “real” cases) • Don’t drink and drive. Just don’t. Bad idea. Don’t do it. • Don’t walk home from the bars in sub-freezing temperatures – that snow drift isn’t as warm as it looks. • …
