Astounding rant from an ER triage nurse: Emergency Room Manners.
1) Don?t be an asshole
2) Lose the weight, stop smoking, take your damn psych meds, and take care of yourself!
3) Its not our fault or responsibility that you?re sick/injured. In fact, it?s probably yours.
4) Folks that arrive dead usually stay dead
5) It?s not like on TV
6) Years of patient abuse have (clearly) left us all a bit burnt out and jaded, so. . .
7) Don?t forget your manners when you come to my ER : )
Wow. Couldn’t have said it better myself. (Warning, actual ED language).
