I saw a chap a few days ago with a sore knee. Called an ambulance to take him to ER. Waited for about 40 mins then decided it was too long so went home. 3 hours later his knee was still sore so he called another ambulance.
Whilst on reception I booked in a patient arriving via a 999 ambulance, who was complaining of head pain due to taking extacy, when asked when did he take the pill he replied two years ago. Have you had the pain all that time I asked, no it comes and goes, gets worse after I drink!!!! moron
My favorite is when someone calls the ambulance for tooth pain because they think that they will bypass the waiting room and get right back into a room. Imagine their surprise when we turf them, still on the ambulance stretcher, to the waiting room where they belong!!
This isn’t all that recent but when I first started working we had some guy come in because he had the tip of a toothpick stuck between his teeth.
I had a young guy come in with blisters on his feet after wearing new shoes to a party. Seriously?? I felt like telling him to suck it up and handle it like a woman!!!!!!
