[Scene: ED - Entrance Corridor. Scarlett and Lloyd run towards the main entrance to meet Jeff and Dixie, who are bringing in a patient. They take him to resus.]

Dixie: Okay, we've got a male, approximately mid-thirties, severely intoxicated. He's vomited and he's started to fit. His GCS, varied, between 9 and 14, his B/P is 95 over 60, his sats are 95.

[Scene: ED - Resus]

Jeff: Which one, please?

Lloyd: Number two.

Jeff: Thank you.

Scarlett: High risk of a possible missed head injury.

Dixie: Okay. Right, let's get him over please, ladies and gents. Have everyone got a bit?

Lloyd: Yep.

Jeff: Yeah.

Linda: Yup.

Dixie: On three. One, two, three...

[A board is slid under the patient]

Dixie: And over. One, two, three...

[The patient is pulled onto the bed. Lloyd and Scarlett realise the patient is Jay.]

Linda: Lloyd?

Lloyd: Maintain open airway. Begin primary survey. Crash bleep anaesthetics. He'll need arterial blood gas.

Scarlett: No signs of trauma. I'll do blood glucose. May need IV dextrose. So, I will put another line in.

[Scarlett grabs Jay's arm to put a line in. As she does so, Jay stats to fit.]

Scarlett: He's fitting!

[Lloyd, Dixie and Jeff hold Jay on his side]

Lloyd: All right, all right. Make sure he's on his side. O2 and suction. 4 miligrams of IV lorazepam and give titrated doses of 1 miligram at a time.

Linda: [To Scarlett] Get that line in.

Scarlett: I'm trying.

[Scarlett manages to put the line in. Jay stops fitting.]

Linda: Well done, crisis averted. Any other comments?

Lloyd: He may need a catheter to prevent him from wetting himself.

[They laugh. Jay sits up, revealing that he wasn't really ill at all.]

Jay: Woah, woah, woah! It's not going to happen, all right? Stop there! [To Dixie] Erm, mid-thirties?

Dixie: Yeah, I was just doing a bit of improv, you know.

Jay: Ah, yeah? [To Scarlett and Lloyd] So, congratulations, grasshoppers. Competency assessment achieved!

Scarlett: So, what happens now?

Jay: Well, nothing. Same as before. But now you don't need someone to hold your hand everytime you want to put a line in. Okay?

[Jay gets off the bed, removing the line in his arm]

Jay: Right, gotta go. I'm late. I've got a very important date. Woo hoo!

[Jay leaves resus. Scarlett and Lloyd clap hands in triumph.]
