2 patients from the same PD, back to back, both in custody. Who would’ve thunk…
Had a full arrest today too. Fire converted him with one shock. Sad part–he went to a ED/Urgent care clinic(crappiest one I could think of…) this morning for “racing heart” and was discharged within an hour. Went to get some lunch with friends, walked out to his car, and had a moment with death.
I smell dollar signs….. but then again maybe I should sue because of that smell…
We went to my favorite nursing home ever. Remember the lollipops? Pretty sure this nurse was stealing patient meds, and taking every last one. She didn’t know–or care about her patient enough to tell us why she called today… And The damn twitching… she couldn’t stop twitching… Not to mention bloodshot eyes to envy the biggest potheads I’ve seen. Here’s how our conversation started:
Me “What is going on with Bob today?”
McSatan “It’s on the paper”
Me “So… Bob, what’s going on”
Bob Blank Stare “I’m fine, she’s the sick one”
Me “ok… So I guess that your patients must take care of you?”
McSatan “What is your problem?!?! Do your job. Just take him to the hospital.”
Me “Well, I am not going to put him in my truck till I have just a vague Idea of what’s going on today… He seems fine, he doesn’t want to go, and we can’t just take him for ‘The nurse said so’ “(I even raised my hands and did the little quote gesture…)
You can see how that went… She said she was going to call my supervisor… My preceptor said…
“Ok, he doesn’t have one, but here’s the number for mine. This is his pager if he doesn’t answer” while he hands her a card.
Apparently this isn’t the first run in with Nurse McSatan. Fucking lollipops.
