Do you ever get patients that you just cannot stand? I had a guy the other day who had a very unfortunate situation. He was 44 years old and never took care of himself. He came in with a really bad pneumonia. It was so bad that it could not be cleared up and they ended up having to remove the entire lung. They gave him a trach. He came back to our floor after a couple of days in the ICU. His room was in direct line of site of the nursing station. He would call on his call light and we would all answer him immediately and page staff to go into his room. If no one came in within 3 minutes (I timed this on my watch) he would start banging on the bed rails. After about three days of this I got really mad at him. I went in there and told him that I called someone to help him immediately when he rang his call light and that banging on the rails was not going to get his needs met any quicker. I told him to stop banging on those rails. I told him that the only emergency situation that qualified for banging on the rails was if he was bleeding to death, otherwise, lay off the rails. I felt real bad for this guy, I really did but he got on my nerves so bad.
