Alright, I've been working in the clinic setting for a while now, but what still drives me absolutely insane is how many patients walk-in to the Dr.'s office demanding to be seen because they are experiencing chest pain. Really?! Why not walk-in to the EMERGENCY ROOM that happens to be about 2 blocks away?! I can't believe how many people every week are showing up in our office this way. Because we are a FQHC, we can't turn anyone away (that includes calling 911 to get them to the hospital) without seeing them. So, they get put into the NURSE's schedule. Then, I get to assess them, perform an EKG, administer O2, etc. until an ambulance arrives. Thankfully, only 1 person so far has actually had a cardiac issue going on. But, SHEESH! Anyone else experience this at their place of work? It's terrifying!
