Patient Quote of the Day

Everyone in EMS has patients that say or ask “the darndest things”. Maybe I’ll make this a series, we’ll see.

PT: “me dan dos dólares para el autobús” (give me $2 for the bus)
Me: “No.”
PT: “No?”
Me: “No. No tengo dinero.” (I have no money)
PT: “Me dan pesos!” (give me pesos)
Me: *blank stare* “estamos en el hospital ahora” (we’re at the hospital now)
PT: “Muy malo…” (very bad)
Me: “Get out of my ambulance” (get out before I request ALS to sedate you)
PT: “Que?” (what?)

Ok, maybe I made up the last part…
