We got a 54 y/o woman in yesterday. She didn't like the way we did anything and I'll be dammed if she didnt' call Channel 4 news and the police. She tried to have one of the nurses arrested because the IV stick hurt. She was telling Channel 4 that we were ignoring all of her requests. It was her birthday and she wanted a steak dinner and a birthday cake. She told us that she would have gone to another hospital but that they had once killed her (apparently brought her back) and they she was in litagation with that hospital and that she had recently learned that her medical records were convienently missing. A real fruitcake I tell you. Wants to go out to smoke constantly. Admitted with COPD exacerbation. I know I should feel compassion for this fruitcake and actually I do but I avoided her like the plague because I don't want to get involved in any lawsuit. She was saying how she was best friends with the CNO and CEO (of course they don't know who she is) , she's saying she's going to have everyone's job before it's over. If you get assigned a person like this how do you handle them? I've had patient tell me before that they were going to sue me because I wouldn't give them pain meds early or let them go out to smoke and stuff like that and I basically told them that I was following the rules and would not put my licsence in jeopardy and they could do what they felt that they needed to do as far as a lawyer was concerned. This particular patient seems different, really scary.........any thoughts?
