I'm up in triage last night going through whatever complaint this lady has and typing away when I noticed she is staring at me looking wicked pissed. I ask her if something is wrong and she rolls her eyes and says, " I know you're not really typing anything! That's just a black screen! I'm not stupid." Oh, no. I hadn't even thought about that angle, but I'm sure now that we're out there charting everyone thinks we're just out there dicking around on the sleeping computers and not getting their meds just to be hateful.
That's almost as brilliant as not being able to put the specific medications on the allergy bands because it's medical information. I'd love to get ahold of whatever the hell they're smoking at these meetings where they come up with this stuff.
