My roommate is the worst I've ever had during a hospital stay. She actually called him a "fucking scumbag" last night after he took her blood pressure. Now she's bitching that he keeps waking her up. Umm..hello? Every 4 hours someone comes in to take your BP and temp! Like clockwork! It's 4:50am, last time he was in was around 1am..she says that's only a 2 hour difference....oh i hope they release me tomorrow! And I'm going to try and make sure I can thank him before I do leave for everything he's done.

Any nurses/drs with horrible patient stories? Or patients with horrible dr/nurse stories? This is my first hospital stay where everybody has been great. Absolutely zero complaints about anyone.


I made a post about it yesterday, but before everyone asks, I came in because I couldn't take the pain in my abdomin (sp?). I thought it was just the virus the kids had. Turns out I have stones in my gallbladder. So far there's no sign of doing surgery while I'm here, but I will have to have it removed in the future.

Update
I don't know what happened while I was doing my stress test, but she's suddenly got a much better attitude. Even saying Ty to the different nurses. I hope it lasts.


Update update

So..everything was looking clear for me to be released tomorrow. Then my nurse came in and told me no food or water after midnight, the surgeons want to talk to me in the morning. Now I'm freaking out. They didn't want to talk to me again until after my ct scan. Please can someone reassure me?? *biting nails*


Final update!!
Finally home! Hanging out with family until dh is off work, then in going home to my boys. I don't want them to jump on me too much :(

I had surgery in November on Election Day and I was probably a pain in the butt to the nurses.  I was supposed to stay two days, but I went home after 24 hours.   I was feeling great and watching election returns on TV.  Every time election results were announced I'd get excited and my pulse would increase from 90 to 130 setting off the alarm.  About 3 minutes later it would go back down.  I had the nurses running back and forth until one was told to stay in my room with me.  


After about three hours and an EKG, I had about 6 of the hospital staff in my room watching TV with me.  I know walking around after surgery helps prevent clotting so I would take a lap around the ward every 2 hours too.  I felt so great they sent me home by noon the next day.  I felt bad for the nurses who were required to check me every time the alarm went off, but i wasn't about to turn off election night coverage because of it.

I can see that being annoying to the nurses, but, from the sounds of it, I wouldn't say you were horrible.this woman next to me doesn't even wait and say these things so he can't hear. She yelled the scumbag comment at him last night as he was leaving

I'd hate to be a nurse having to deal with difficult patients. It certainly takes a special person.

Just don't wait too long a stone could block your duct then you will end up like me, in a hospital for four months and in a coma

When I was 16 I was in a 4 wheeler accident and ended up in ICU for ten days. In the room next to me was a drug dealer who had gotten his ass kicked pretty badly. Everytime the nurses touched him he wluld yell and scream and cuss. Call them horrible names, tell them they were trying to kill him etc. He and I were the only ones on the floor at the time. One night one of the nurses snapped and went off on him. She told him there was a child in the next room who was far more injured than he was and not making any fuss at all ans he was acting like a big baby lol.

I have nothing but the utmost respect for the nurses that have to deal with bedpans..I could never do it. Except for one that I had when I was in for a really bad UTI..she was a bitch to me

Wow! What a bitchy bitch. Be sure to get his name and fill out a patient satisfaction card for him!! Nurses appreciate it and big admins see them too!

Any hospital stays I've ever had, i had a private room lol

Now, after having my emergency c section with little man, i was pretty stubborn with the nurses. I refused to take the pain medicine because it made me extremely sick and for some reason, would make me dizzy and my blood pressure rise. Since we were trying to get my pressure back down to normal, i wanted to avoid the medicine but a few young stubborn nurses would come in every 30 minutes and no matter what i was doing, would lecture me and yell at me to take the pain killers. I never did lol i felt fine and didn't want to stay drugged up.

I'm hoping I can set the surgery up for sometime within the next month. I do not want to deal with this again
