Just a pet peeve....I hate when I do a set of vitals on a patient and the vitals are clinically stable but the patient insists its abnormal.
Me - Just checked the temp - reads 98.4
Patient (40 something drama queen) - "Thats high for me...I think i have a fever"
Me - "Do you know what your temp normally is?"
Patient - "My normal temp is 98.2"
Me - "Your temp is FINE...all your other vitals are FINE"
Patient - "But i really am sick if I go above 98.4.......blah, blah, blah
Just irritates me....
