His blood pressure was actually fine but the doctor was much more concerned about his drunkness so we kept him in the room for a while after he was discharged. At one point I was walking by his room to go do real work when he called me in to ask me a question.
Hood Nurse: What can I do for you sir?
Pt: Yeah. I need a work excuse from the doctor, for like, three or four days off or somethin'.
Hood Nurse: For elevated blood pressure that you've had for several months? Why? We're sending you home on meds, sir.
Pt: Well, um, like, my job is like, really stressful and I just don't think I need to be there while my pressure is high.
Hood nurse: Yeaaahh. I'm gonna have to talk to the doctor about this one.
At this point I have to know what he does that is so stressful and I look up his demographic info in the computer to see that he works for a carpet steaming company. Oh really. Yeah, that's gonna be a big negative on the three days off work, but thanks for playing.
