Have It Your Way
.....That's at Burger King, not the Emergency Department.
A 64 year old male came in to "have his cataracts taken out." He thought we just had a eye doctor sitting around in the ED waiting to take care of him. When I told him we didn't, he was upset because he would have to make an appointment with an eye doctor, wait for the appointment, and pay money for it! The audacity!
I have had multiple similar encounters with people wanting there breast lumps taken out and diagnosed for cancers, colonoscopies, and even skin biopsies. Emergency department folks, emergencies only please.
