I have a classic story!
A few years back, the day after doing some strenuous gardening, I got a pain in my chest and left arm. I panicked and rang for an ambulance. Was late - almost midnight. The ambulance arrived in no time and suddenly I was in resus and hooked up to all the usual. Nothing was found, no cardiac enzymes or whatever.
Still they decided to put me on a Warfarin pump and at 3.30am they admitted me to coronary care.
Well, come the morning, I felt somewhat foolish, realising that it was muscular. 7am I called the nurse and said "I think I'll go home now!" Truly - that's exactly what I said! Stupido!!!
Well, eventually the consultant did his round and said that although they had found nothing at all, he still wanted to keep me in another 24hrs because I was a member of staff at the time and 'we have to take care of our nurses'. Obediently I smiled my assent and as soon as he had gone, asked for a form of self-discharge!
The nurses kept prevaricating, saying they'd get to it but first I need to have the Veflon removed. Several hours later I was still waiting and in the end told the nurse with some emphasis "You have two options - either you remove it or I will!" My sister and her son were sitting with me and both looked exceedingly embarrassed!
Even then, they prevaricated until I went to the sister myself and demanded the form. But I left!
