Ok, this should be fun!Mine happened this weekend. I had a colorectal surgery patient who, while stable was not looking especially good. The patient's abdomen was getting more distended, they were having more pain, etc.The patient's family was pretty anxious and of course none of the colorectal team were available on the weekend; all requests had to go to the junior surgical resident who was a first year family medicine doctor on surgery rotation. She was helpful and very sweet but freely admitted to me that she was a bit out of her league so after doing her best to calm the family down she told me she'd page the senior resident who works closely with the colorectal team and have her assess the patient.Of course the senior was busy and of course I'd already attempted to reassure the family by telling them that the senior resident was going to consult so I found myself in the uncomfortable situation of text paging the senior directly to beg her to come (a big no-no; they're big on the chain of command where I work.). In desperation I promised to buy her coffee for the next month if she came by and she reluctantly agreed. Being a nurse of my word I bought her a Starbucks gift card which I gave to her when she finally showed up. She muttered an ungracious thank you and went to see the patient. No good deed goes unpunished; the family complained to me that the senior surgical resident was short with them and I got out a half hour late because of the time I wasted begging and finally bribing this doctor.I want my twenty dollars back.
