Took a beating admitting patients today. Got 4 direct admits from the office, 3 of which were patients who were horrible historians (ok, one was vegetative but his wife was terrible), which makes my job much harder.
One resident who had already sent us one patient, sent the following text toward the end of office hours:
Him: Btw I had another to admit to you.
Backup: you suck.
Me: You’ve got to be kidding.
Him: the guy left the office AMA with a potassium of 2 and heart rate of 36. He will either come to the ER later or die at home tonight.
Us: either way, just hope it happens after 7:30 PM.
