You did fine. On our tele unit, on every admission, I give all a/oX3 pts "The Spiel."
I say, "This is what to expect while you're here. Nurses will do such-and-such every shift, techs will do thus-and-so, and lab comes in at whatever-time. "
Then I say "We're going to complete what I call 'The Redundant Question List.' That is, you'll tell me you've heard all these questions before, but when you're sick and there's so much going on, sometimes, we get different answers to the same questions between the ER and here. And we want to make sure your care is individulized as much as possible to your needs. OK?"
Well, boy, do they open up then! I have often had to revise allergies, add or delete them because we ask that question on our floor 3 TIMES! during an admit.
And that is just how important it is to get it right. You did fine. The doc was probably freaking out because he was the last to know--you know how docs hate that....
