Pinworms is NOT a reason to show up on L&D after midnight at a hospital your OB doesn't practice at.

Thank you.

FHTs are fine. You can call your own doctor in the morning to deal with this. An extra 8 hours won't kill you...since no pharmacy around here is open anyway.

constipation is also not a reason to come in after midnight.

No, I didn't go in. I was irked that my sleep was interrupted for it.

Constipation is also not a reason to call EMS to come to L&D. I've had multiple patients through the years do that!

Gosh, I was near getting an aneurysm after reading this 'cos I thought you had to go in to see this patient. I'm not an ER attending yet, but I feel your pain in my carotid sinus, and developed tachycardia appropriately.

First time here and I read the whole first page in one sitting. A post a week ain't enough! I'll be back to stalk :)
