EMS cliche #7

Code 2 for foot pain. At 4am.

Foot pain for 8 months.

“They didn’t do nothing for me. So I left.”

“I really doubt that they didn’t do anything. I’m guessing it was way more likely you didn’t listen to anything they said or follow any of their instructions.”

I’m sure you’ve heard this one a bunch of times.

That’s the homeless patient detailing his attempts to seek medical care in the 8 months leading up to this huge medical emergency at 4am.

It sure seems like the patients who love to regale us with stories about how hospitals never do anything for them are always demanding to be transported to said hospitals so they can once again get nothing from them.
