: One thing I remembered about the time I went to the hospital when I got
: kicked in the head. Earlier in that day, we were filming another scene
: and I had been shot and had a really nice wound to my chest. My shirt
: was torn and had been powder blacked and blood was all over it as well.
: I had a really nice latex wound in the center of my chest. Went I got to
: the hospital a new nurse was checking me out and saw the wound and
: thought is was real. She started calling other RN's and the doctor. I
: tried to tell her it was not real but she told me to calm down and rest.
: I reached down and pulled at the wound. Being latex and glued on pretty
: good, it stretched and and then tore. When she saw it she backed up to
: the wall and passed right out. When she came to, the others told her
: what had happened and was so embarrassed .
Being a nurse, I can understand her reaction completely. In the ER, you always have some extra adrenaline going and you just don't expect things like that to happen. Poor girl. However, I'm sure she can laugh about it now, and is telling all her friends about you. :))
