The Angry Patient
How to deal: Don’t let the Angry Patient’s eternal black cloud rain over you too! If anything, this patient could use a good dose of optimism. Ask him to stop yelling; a sick patient doesn’t need to get worse because his blood pressure is through the roof. If he gets in your face, remains uncooperative, or threatens you, call security, stat. Don’t ever let any patient walk all over you! Never take a chance with a disgruntled patient.
