"Ah...Charles...I feel your frustration. I'm very, very good at starting IVs and without fail...when I get a line in on an especially difficult-to-access patient the response is "Thank ya Jeeezus"......I want to tell thes cretins…"
It's a language barrier and social barrier that's rough enough to work through without the added ick of religious platitudes. Whether you have it, know someone who does, or are just interested in knowing more, all are welcome!
"I feel your ire. I've often wanted to put a little sign right under the one that reads ------ ------RN that says "Jesus didn't start your IV...I did." But, I'm in enough trouble as it is. As several others have suggested,…"
Going on a cruise? Traveling cross country, or around the world? Moving to a new town? Want to meet like-minded folks, or just need recommendations about sights to see, places to stay, etc? Let us know where you're headed!
"Ignore felch. There are a lot more intelligent, reasonable people here than he. Don't give up on all of us because of 1 or 2 self-absorbed narcissists who aren't happy unless they're having a grumpfest and demeaning others to salve…"
Greetings, unholyroller! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Aug. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
The second VNG set that was done the goggles leaked light giving me an artificial horizon negating nystagmus - they don't know how to test, so an MRI was ordered.
I had to be sedated for the MRI because I can’t lay down without feeling like a parachutist out of control. All I really needed was to be put into a twilight sleep. The otologist didn't know how to order that, so I had to call the previous doctor and get the name of the medicine they used. This time I was put entirely out as though it was for an operation. I was unconscious for over an hour and a half. While I was waiting in ACU someone stroked out across the room in the post medical unit. Here it is four days later and the metallic taste of the anastasia is just getting out of my mouth.
If doctors cared about quality control they would allow the patient's to read the medical reports to help make corrections, but I suppose that's another story.
I finally decided to hire a lawyer after after writing a doctor asking her to correct hospital admission paperwork she generated saying I had been sick since 1983. The first time I saw a doctor for my inner ear problem was 2004. She refused to correct the paperwork saying she isn't my workman's compensation doctor. Her error is the reason workman's comp didn't pay for the two surgeries and seven days in the hospital.
