After 15 years of nursing, I still get nervous, when I have to page a dr. I try to make sure that I have all the needed info in front of me, and I even do a little dry run through on how I'm going to present the pt to the dr.
I'm getting onry in my old age, and no longer tolerate rude/intimidating behavior from the docs. Last week, I had one of the on call docs start yelling at me. I let him rant without making any comments. When he didn't hear me saying anything , he asked me if I was still on the line. My reply to him, " I'm sorry, were you talking to me? If so , then you need to repeat those comments, in calm voice. The doc told me never mind, and then hung up.
