I've decided that this lady is going to be an interesting character to take care of!
The other nite she sent the CNA out to tell me that she had a 'sore throat', so I looked to see what she had ordered - and went in to offer her Tylenol (I'd done her temp. earlier, and it was normal.)
She behaved as tho I'd offered her dirt!! "Now, why?" she says "Would you offer me Tylenol for a sore throat?" Because it's a pain reliever, I tell her - then I asked her what she wanted. "An antibiotic!" she tells me.
Well, I'm starting to feel as tho I'm in Oz - but I explained that we don't just keep antibiotics around to hand out - and I also tried to explain the dangers of overuse of antibiotics. She told me that she had had a 'sore throat' a couple weeks before - and her doctor had given her an antibiotic! All this time, she's behaving like I'm a stupid child!
I said something to the other nurse, and she told me that the LOL will call her doctor herself if she doesn't get what she wants - and they'll call it in for her.
