- 0May 21, '05 by Blackcat99I remember that the hospital had a few mean/rude doctors. I am thinking about seeking work in a general medical clinic. How are the majority of doctor's behavior when they have their own clinic? I know when I go to my own personal clinic they act very professional when I am a patient. :chuckle

I don't give the the satisfaction of catering to them when they are jerks to me.did he then look at the bag? I wonder why he didn't look in the first place?

I finally had enough of that kind of behavior and followed him to the elevator he had a group of interns with him and I just ask him "Why are you screaming at me for things that don't even concern anything about your patients care? He just sttod there just staring at me and then he said "It's not supposed to be personal." I ask him " How am I not supposed to take it personal when you are standing there screaming at me in front of patients and co-workers." He just stood there dumbfounded. Then he just walked away. I just knew he was heading for the vp's of nursings office and it was so long for me.i work in the er and we have one doctor who screams and yells - and i mean screams from halfway across the er at nurses, patients, visitors whoever - the next minute he acts like nothing happened - i don't know why the hospital puts up with it - i have personally complained but no change.
But nothing happened I found out later from a couple of interns that he told them I was his favorite nurse, I was floored! He told me several years later that I had been the only nurse that told him not to talk to me like that and he respected that. you just never know I guess

Just yesterday a PA was extremely rude to me at the nurses stations and I (ahem) sounded off at him. After a few minutes of total silence (know how scary that silence can be?), he apologized to me. After he left the floor, when the charge nurse would call the office for any of the Dr.'s patients change of condition, when he would call back he asked for me. Go figure. When I found out what he wanted, I transferred him back to the charge nurse (if it wasn't my patient). Sometimes, you just have to "explain" it to them.
