One night we were in the middle of a trauma code (not a trauma center but the accident haddened right down the street.) Only have 1 doc. A patients wife walked into the trauma code and said "Look this thing is going to take all night and my husband just needs a bandaid that will take 2 minutes. You can run in and see him and then come back here and we can go home."
My question (Yes, I really said it out load) "What the F##k did he come to an ER for a bandaide for???" I was lucky that night, she must have thought about how stupid she had been because I never got reported for that one.
As our hospital takes pleasure in drumming into our heads "CUSTOMER SERVICE, CUSTOMER SERVICE, CUSTOMER SERVICE"
I had been off a couple days and when I came back I noticed a large amount of methodone had been uses (they started stocking it in the ER after (/!! incase people couldn't get to their clinics). I asked the nurse I was counting with "Who are wee giving all this methadone to?" and bless her heart she looked up at me and simled and said "Anyone who wants it dear, remember CUSTOMER SERVICE, CUSTOMER SERVICE, CUSTOMER SERVICE.
So I guess that goes for visitors too.
