No reason for him to yell. He could have taken it up with the nurse's manager if necessary. Most doctors are not absuive to me in any way, but when they are, I say, "I called you professionally as a nurse to address an issue. When you are ready to address it, call me back and we can talk sensibly. I have fulfilled my obligation and can document that". Then I quietly hang up. I've actually only done that three times in my career. All three times I was called back within five minutes and the doctor apologized.
I worked with a nurse who administered Magnesium IVP over about two seconds.
I also worked with a nurse who used to not wash her own hands after she went to the bathroom, including BM. I wish I was kidding. She also picked her nose and ate her buggers. Then she'd provide patient care.
