Wow...He really takes the cake!

My, my, I was thinking maybe I've seen it all, things just don't surprise me so much anymore...except for the patient I had tonight man oh man!!! So the report we get is that he's 18 years old, his blood alcohol level is 3.38, he's combative and calling everyone every name in the book. And on top of it, apparently he's a transvestite and his boyfriend broke up w/ him and he started drinking. He in 4 point lock and key restraints (VERY VERY RARE FOR US TO USE THESE) security brings him up, it takes 12 of us to move him from the cart to the bed and tie him back down. He's calling people the N word, bitches, you name it. It was just the craziest thing you've ever seen. So we get him settled into bed, and I'm giving report trying to get the heck out of there and the sitter starts yelling about him having a seizure, so I go in and he's convulsing, eyes rolled in the back of his head foaming at the mouth, then he stops and he's not breathing. CRAP!!! I feel for a pulse, I find one, so we call in the rapid action team...he starts breathing again so now we're sternum rubbing him trying to get him to wake up...finally he says bitch if you don't stop shaking me I'm going to kick your thing you know he's awake and being an ass again! I think he takes the cake on my craziest patient of 09! We wanted so badly to record this idiot, if not to put on youtube just to show our family...look at the crap we put up w/ at work! Oh and apparently the cops want him on attempted murder charges, yeah guess he tried to kill his dad last night, lovely huh? I'm wired I can't sleep at all! Ah, I love my job!

Been there, done that! LOL

I tell ya, people just don't realize what it's like working in a hospital.

I don't think I've ever had any patients charged with attempted murder though. ;)

Although I did have a patient pull a knife on me once. We're still not sure where she got it! Now THAT was scary.

I've not had a weapon pulled on me, one of our nurses had a gun pulled on her...I didn't know anything about it until I heard them page the code, I was right across the hall. Yeah, I guess the next day they let him out of restraints and he was calling making death threats to people @@, he was discharged to the police later on.
