Patient quote of the weekend

"I've been having headaches, you know, and like, stuff that I get with them, you know, all that stuff that happens with my headaches, like, you know, it hurts, and I don't feel good and stuff, you know, and like, can you do stuff about this? You know, like, pills or stuff or something?"

And, as usual, this call came in at around 3:00 a.m.

do you wake up to take these calls?

Mrs J said...

How old is this person? 13? Call back when you can talk like a grown up. I know migraines messes with the ability to think but this is rediculious. I suffer daily and am more coherant.

Didn't you want to tell her to, you know, stuff it?

Was this your patient? So, what was the point? Did she/he know, and were they able to let you know eventually? Like you would know.

Like, you know, I don't do narcotics especially at this hour.

This is just slightly less coherent than a phone call I made to my doctor when I was in (physician-ordered) withdrawal from SSRIs and out of my mind. But I called during working hours.

Yeah, I was on this weekend. Saw many slightly ill people. Had one of our favorite (she says sarcastically) frequent fliers at 3:30 am. Called an ambulance for a sinus headache. Really. Our tax dollars at work.

Well, like, come on, Dr. Grumpy! Do your stuff and help this girl out!

sadly, verbal communication skills, like auscultation skills in the arena of too-cool testing, will continue to decline thanks to texting....
