Your favorite patient “lines” revealed!
I like when patients ask for their nausea medicine while eating a cheeseburger and fries and requesting a second tray from food service.
“I’m allergic to 25 mg Demerol, but I can take 50.”
When patients with severe acid reflux ask, “What do you mean I can’t have pizza? What else am I supposed to eat?”
On their 100th visit for treatment: “How long is this going to take?”
“I’m not obese—my clothes are shrinking!”
I love when the elderly patients use their call bell for something and say, “I’m sorry if I woke you up….”
“Can I borrow $300? I promise to pay you back. You’re a nurse, you look like you make good money.” (Awkward!)
“I have end-stage fibromyalgia and need refills on my two narcotics.”
“I get redneck syndrome from that antibiotic.”
