I agree with you there; I work in skilled nursing so most of my patients are psychologically sound and therefore make numerous requests/demands throughout the day. I call these types total care.
Sometimes I get people who will do this, because they seem to be under the delusion that they are my only patient:
2:30 p.m.: Can I have iced tea?
2:45 p.m.: The tea made me have to pee. Take me to the potty while I tell you a pointless story about how great my moody teenage granddaughters are. By the way I don't want to shower. I just got my hair permed, etc...
2:55 p.m.: Can you call my daughter and tell her to bring me my pink sweater with the cat on it? No, not the black cat, the yellow one.
3:30 p.m.: Can I have some yogurt? 2 cups and with blueberries, but it has to be the Dannon kind. By the way I lost my cell phone.
4:00 p.m.: I don't want to go eat in the dining room.
4:05 p.m.: Never mind, I want to eat in the dining room. Can I have a shower right now before we go?
