quite often (like on a daily basis) i encounter patients who paint such a bleak picture of severe pain and suffering and almost begging to be life flighted to an ed.
they answer all the "emergent"
questions yes yes and yes!!! but the minute you suggest hospital.
"ya really think i need to go in?" i'm not that bad. i'm ok, no big deal just a little stomach pain and bloating and my nuts is swelled up and i can't walk, and i know allot of people that have blood in there bm. i stopped vomiting blood so why do ya think i need to go to the er?? can't i just stay home and drink a little more till my pain goes away?
