10 Most Annoying Patients

The Late Patient
How to deal: Most hospitals and clinics have rules set up for people who show up late: from moving other waiting patients up, or skipping them entirely. Stay strong and stick to your hospital’s guidelines, no matter what excuse the Late Patient has. Making exceptions for the Late Patient can spin things out of control. However, if your employer doesn’t have rules in place, it may be up to you to rule on a case-by-case basis.
