- Jan 18, '10 by KungFuFtrI'm not a fan of pregnant Pts; infants with septic workups and Pt's who can't speak English. Although the non-English speakers are usually very grateful and nice nor do they have a scene of entitlement. I just don't like calling the translator hot-line as it's time consuming.

I don't do well with kids, babies, or adults who are walkie talkies.
I recently had a pt in ICU who was downgraded to floor status and he was constantly on his call light. He wanted me to go to the vending machine for him and buy him some chips with my own money and he was on a low sodium diet.
