Paging Florence Nightingale! Our beloved Ames Brown appears to be a bit fragile, and he had another oopsie, which sent him to the hospital for his latest concussion.

Last time Ames busted his head, it was during the Muay Thai boxing match on The Bachelorette Season 7. Ironically enough, Life & Style reports that Ames was having blood taken as a follow-up exam stemming from that concussion when he passed out and hit his head, forcing him to spend January 17 in a NYC hospital bed.

"He split open his chin and injured his upper lip, and got another concussion," a source told Life & Style. "It took two hours to put all of the stitches in his face."

But at least he has a sense of humor about the whole thing. "He e-mailed me saying that he looks like the Joker!" the source told L&S. We always knew he was a lover, not a fighter. It’s good to see he’s a joker, too.

By the way, Bachelor Ben Flajnik has a couple of nurses on his season, so if he doesn’t pick one of them maybe they should go follow Ames around as a precaution. Sounds like he could use a harem of helpers.
