Elderly female in no apparent distress from whom I am taking a simple history.
‘Ma’am have you had any surgeries recently?’
Patient: ‘Well doc since my husband and I stopped having sex that weird pain has gone away’
The sex doc, the sex……????
Patient comes in panicking and telling me that she overdosed herself today by taking one extra pill of her blood pressure meds.
I asked her to give me the name of her tablet………which she did not know…????
All vitals signs were stable, it was 2 am, she took the pill ‘sometime in the evening’ and forgot to come in earlier on………
I sent her home thinking next time take a ‘chill the hell out pill’ instead………
