Why are drunk patients the MOST annoying type of patient?
Yesterday I had 2 such patients. Susan and Paul.
Paul drank 3 litres of cider a day. He decided to come to the A+E because he had a problem with his one leg that was swollen. It had been swollen for 6 months, but today it was so sore he could hardly make it out of the house to buy the standard cider and decided that something had to be done, as this was now serious.
Susan drank 1/2 a bottle of vodka and smoked 30 cigarettes a day. She had drunken her poor pancreas into absolution and was vomiting her guts out and in severe pain. Vodka will do that to you...
On a lighter note, the giveaway has closed and the winner will be announced tomorrow :)
