Rebekah Child over at Scrubs Magazine posted a great comical blog post about some patients we have all taken care of.
OK, you know you have had a patient or two like this:
1) The guy covered in tattoos who is whining about you starting an IV because it is going to hurt. I’ve had both, a tattoo and multiple IV starts. I will take the IV any day. Don’t tell me an IV hurts worse than your body ink.
5) The patient who starts freaking out on you because the cardiac monitor is reading a flat line. A lead fell off. You are not dead or you couldn’t be yelling at me.
Head on over to the original post to check out the remainder of the list. Care to add any?
