Nice gets you nice

Code 2 for a 25-year-old female vomiting. At 5am.

“Hey, can I yell at her?”

“No…”

A young woman has IBS and has been having nausea, vomiting and diarrhea since last night. She’s obviously very uncomfortable. I know that N/V/D can really suck, but, strictly on merit, there’s no disguising the incredible lameness of the call anyway.

But she’s nice and polite. And ambulatory, not writhing around and pretending like she can’t walk like so many other assholes.

And that alone puts me in a much better mood.
