Bizarre ER?

So a kid sticks a little lego piece up his nose.
So a man gets cellulitis on his foot.

Everyday ER events? Pretty pathetic compared to dozens of stories that any ER nurse could come up with? YOU might think so, but apparently the producers of this British show were wowed. Granted, the man's foot looks pretty disgusting, but somehow they turn an ER course of IV antibiotics and and I&D into a 5:30 section. Money quote: "left untreated, it could lead to a serious blood infection, or even the loss of the whole limb."

Usual TV crap, we all know this is nothing but television folk love it. When the BBC filmed our department they were fascinated by the most trivial of things, each to their own I suppose.
