yesterday I had a father with a cold bring his 3 kids in , and they were all in the same room. He wanted them "checked" to make sure they didn’t have what he had, which was a cold. You would have thought he was dying. And the kids had no symptoms at all, not even a cold. Painful….
Brought in by ambulance, 5:25 am with a 7 hour history of ‘severe’ sore throat and ‘cold’.
Right this way sir, care for a cyanide lozenge to numb your throat?
Just piss the taxpayers money away.
10 pm. Chief complaint "my 3 year old is touching his privates". Nothing wrong with them, no pain. Asked why, the child said: it feels good.
Once during an overnight shift, I had parents who brought their teenage daughter in at 4:00 AM requesting that we give her "truth serum" to find out where she had been that night.
had an old woman call 911, get an ambulance transport into emerge in the middle of the night because she needed her perscription refilled.
