You take 15 medications and you don't know what any of them are? So you swallow and handful of biologically potent chemicals every day with no worries. Cool.
You're allergic to all pain meds except Dilaudid? Riiiiight. Be right back with your Toradol
Your intake has abnormalities in every single system review EXCEPT psych? No problems there
You self-referred, are private pay and only think we need to concern ourselves with the pieces of your medical history you volunteer. We will get far.
You've missed four $20 co-pay follow ups in the clinic and now that you're admitted to the hospital you're upset because of the bill.
You're here for palpitations but drink a pot of coffee each morning.
Now that you're sick the family reunion is happening in your room on my shift and your Uncle Chuck would like a sandwich?
You're a diabetic with hypertension and your friend brings you Popeye's and sweet tea.
Twelve calls have come in for you since you were admitted three hours ago and everyone wants to know your status.
You've complained of half a dozen symptoms to me but when the doctor rounds you "feel great."
On admission you left out the fact that you're a raging alcoholic and I enter the room to find you shaking, sweating profusely and vomiting. Awesome.
Feel free to chime in or go in on nurses....
