LOVE STORIES: THE GOOD & THE BAD
Valentine’s Day is not known for being one of the most dangerous days of the year. Overdosing on chocolate, it turns out, is less likely to kill you than drunk driving or fireworks gone awry.

But on any day when emotions are running high, emergency room doctors are destined to bear witness to insane - and sometimes intimate - episodes in their ERs. To get you ready for the month of February, we’ve compiled relevant stories and tips.​

TOP OF MIND...

1. Valentine’s Day marriage proposals are an under-publicized public health risk. People tend to get overly enthusiastic on holidays, taking risks and possibly endangering themselves or others. You can get creative, but don't overdo it.

2. Valentine’s Day can be a time when lonely hearts get lonelier, putting those who are prone to depression at risk. Keep an eye on your single friends and family members to make sure they are not left to deal with the dark thoughts alone.
