What is your most outrageous/funniest "frequent flyer" story? Let's share our grievances and put it in the

Emergent, RN

Pt apparently fell in love with getting a pelvic exam by a certain ER doc. Would first call to try and ascertain if said doc was on before coming in with her female complaint.

Eventually legally banned from ER in question.

Specializes in ICU, LTACH, Internal Medicine. Has 7 years experience.

LOL with preterminal CHF from LTC. Admitted every M, W, F between 8 and 10 PM with fluid overload, went to observation, d/c next AM, repeat. After something like 100+ admissions, I decided to figure out what the heck was going on (I was not in RN capacity and minimally, if anything, limited). Came to that LTC, introduced myself, asked questions... it happened to be that, since the LTC was Catholic, the resudents were "encouraged" to abstain from meat M, W, F. Therefore, dinner options were either tomato or vegetable soup (from cans) and other heat-and-run GFC stuff overloaded with salt.The rest of the days food was really cooked in house, so the kitchen team knew residents' dietary limitations.

80 mg of Lasix on Lord's days after dinner. Problem solved for a while :)

That is a horrifying situation for the ER doc to be put in. I am cringing at the thought of this pt and scenario.

Not necessarily a "frequent flyer" situaton, but we had a patient who would get erections from catheter care done by any female nurse. He would eventually became so comfortable he would start moaning :yuck:. He was promptly assigned to have care delivered by male nurses only and that solved that problem ;)
