We had an attention seeking person in the ER that would only "seize" when someone walked by or entered the bay. The doctor wasn't curious about the situation so he walked into the bay and the person started seizing and flailing. With a foley in hand the doctor said "if you don't stop that right now I'm going to put this catheter in you!". The patient stopped "seizing" sat right up in bed and didn't seize again for the rest of their ER visit.
