Funny patients

  1. I had a couple of funny patients recently.

    Patient A smelled homeless. He lacked teeth and reeked of cigarettes and BO, with unwashed clothes. He had deep wrinkles and thinning hair. He did have baby blue eyes, I'll grant him that.

    He said to me "God granted me with good looks. The women all flock to me. Soon you'll be flocking to me. I look just like Paul Newman!"


    Patient B had a pack of cigarettes in his front pocket. I gently chided him about them. He told me that he needed those cigarettes to keep his blood pressure up. In fact, he told me, back when he was a Mormon he had to get a doctor's prescription so he could keep smoking and be a good Mormon, since it was the only thing that would keep his blood pressure up !

    You are so attractive Davey! Your body odor is delectable and I love the smell of cigarettes that permeates your stylish jeans, with the ground in dirt.

    Today we had a patient that came in to the ER via ambulance for foot pain but when he actually came in and got settled he started singing. He thought he was singing for American Idol...he also said he was in Russia...

    There was another case where this older woman prob around her 40's that claimed she "lost" her tampon up there...
