Cranquis (examining a 10-year old child’s hand after a fall): Well, nothing seems to hurt you during the exam, so that’s good. I don’t think we’ll need to get an xray.
Mother: OH HANG ON A SECOND DOCTOR ARE YOU SURE YOU’RE CHECKING IT RIGHT BECAUSE WHEN I TOUCHED HER HAND BEFORE SHE SAID IT…
So last night this nephrologist got pissed at me for taking a patient with hyperkalemia to CT when the ER MD gave the green light. I’ve never seen a doc so pissed and unprofessional in front of the family. It was almost comical. I’m glad my supervisor, and department head fully support me and encouraged me to file an incident report against him. Fuck disrespectful doctors. One day they will be a patient and realize how much shit nurses put up with.
