And counting...hours until I'm off call.
I've gotten only call tonight :Asking about the forms for free electricity that need to be filled out.
I refused that call from the call center. I was enroute to home, far away from the office and the chart. What part of EMERGENCY is not being comprehended here?
Had a call last night. "I think I'm in labor."
Me : Why?
Patient: I'm having these pains.
Me : How long?
Patient: Over a month now.
Me : You're not in labor.
Patient : But it hurts!
Me : You are not in labor. We can see you tomorrow if you're still hurting, but labor generally doesn't last a month.
