Me, to patient being seen for abdominal pain as she was about to chomp into a double cheeseburger: "Ma'am, you really shouldn't eat until we have the results of your CAT scan back. That's the reason I wouldn't bring you coffee when you asked me for it earlier. I'll let you know as soon as we know something, though."
Patient:"Well, if I can't eat my cheeseburger then I need more pain medicine. I haven't eaten all day. This shit is ridiculous!"
It was a ten. Obviously.


  1. Why is it that everyone who comess to the ER at night hasn't eaten all day? Maybe that's why your stomach hurts you fool!

  2. These are the same bozos that will kill our patient satisfaction scores. Morons!
