It might be me, but i am getting fed up with all the drug seekers and stupid patients with all their compliants about warm blankets and ice chips. ******** about waiting 2 hours on a friday night for their knee pain x 2 months. I routinely catch myself asking myself "what are we doing here?" . Who cares about medicine, it is all about getting your dilaudid and rx for norco to go home with. We now call it PTI, promoting the ignorance. I have been in EMS as a Paramedic/Firefighter for over 20 years and an RN in ER for 5 years now but the recent increase has me hitting my head into the wall. It is all about the survey and the way managers cater to them is nauseating and downright disrespectfull to the staff. Every compliant no matter how ******** is investigated and you must write down your version in response. I got a compliant last week from a "migraine" twice a week ER patient while i was in the other room with a head injury we were flying out. It is everywhere and not just at my hospital. I am afraid this is going to make me change dept. I don't see this changing anytime soon. Any help would be great or I just give up and transfer departments. thanks.
