    Text - What is the most amazing thing you've ever seen as an ER doctor? A six-year-old girl had an "accident." I am putting this into scare quotes, because it was a combination of parental neglect and her being hurt badly by an older kid the day before and her getting dizzy while carrying the laundry downstairs because her mother was too high to do it. No six-year- old girl should be in that situation, but if it had to be one, she wasn't the one. She was frail from bad or no food, scared easily

    Text - She came to us, and the trauma guys started in on her fractured arm and clavicle, someone else worked on her cuts, and a nurse was keeping her company, because the mother was nowhere to be seen.

    Text - I met one of the bikers a few weeks later. He had been "accidentally" hit with a baseball bat and needed some X-rays because those things cause massive internal bleeding. He told me that, when the girl was about to be discharged, they'd had a conversation with the mother and had come to a "mutual agreement."
