First a disclaimer: Although I don't own any stock in Kaiser, nor do I have any friends or relatives working there, I thoroughly love the treatment my family and I have been receiving from them for almost 30 years now! They've covered us for everything from maternity and broken bones to cancer and extensive surgeries - virtually no expense has been barred when the illness or injury was serious. All of that great medical attention by an extraordinarily professional staff at what's been very affordable rates for my family and me. So, although I'm not trying to sell you anything I recommend Kaiser Permante without hesitation - it's worked for us!
Okay, down to the nitty-gritty of this video - I seriously injured my left knee while backcountry skiing on a Saturday afternoon near the Continental Divide in early March. It hurt and bled so much, on the trail, that I almost vomited (I don't know why I'd have that kind of reaction to an injury but I did...). So, as you can see from all of the associated videos, I made my way back to Denver over a slippery and congested Interstate 70 to Kaiser's after-hours clinic in Lakewood (the only one I could remember the location of that was close to the highway).
The medical staff at Kaiser gave me immediate attention and spent a lot of time and effort cleaning, prepping, and suturing the wound. You can see all of their efforts in the associated videos I've posted. Although they gave me permission to record what they were doing I tried to avoid revealing anyone's identity - I think I was successful despite an average of four (4!) people assenting me at any one time! After their work was completed I ended up with seven (7) stitches and a bottle of Cephalexin...
