Patient is an obese female who came in with a fractured ankle. It was deformed tremendously. I was having a hard time with the patient because the pain medications were taking a really long time to take effect. Out of no-where a nurse shows up to test the patient sugar level with a…..FINGERSTICK…..which of course has the patient screaming and the patient instantly becomes less drowsy….ugh!!!!
An hour later I have to review a patient who came in with a headache…..I have to review the patient’s chest x-ray and abdominal x-ray…..WHAT???? I guess someone was on who was even more tired than I was.
A bit of a frustrating day.
