    Ridiculous is a daily occurrence in this business.

    I have seen a patient in her 60s who came to the ED because she had a bad dream, that was one of the most ridiculous I guess.

    A favorite ridiculous patient is the one that comes in with a vague chronic complaint of several years duration that a dozen specialists have failed to diagnose who comes into the ED expecting a definitive diagnosis.

    Another favorite of mine is the folks the police bring in on mental health holds even though there is no mental health complaint simply because they were annoying people and generating 911 calls.
