Can't tell you how many times in a shift I hear "I called my PMD but they told me to come to the ER". And that is during office hours. And most specialists that do pull call for ED consult never want to come in. They come up with all grades of excuses to defer to another speciality or just get the hospitalist to admit and they will see them later. Don't know of any PMD's that see pts after hours in their office.
    I don't understand. I was complimenting cary for being so available. I misread the post and thought he had an answering service. Big deal. My point was is that folks could get a hold of him after hours, and I was complimentary about that. Its not that way where I am, and I wish it was.

    And I NEVER implied anyone should see patients in their office after hours. Didn't you see my comment specifically about that, where I said it would be like professional suicide?? That's what ERs are for. Unfortunately, they are often abused by people who can't be seen otherwise. I'm sure you know all too well about that.

    Have a good one.

One of the best yardsticks in judging the performance of one's work is how they themselves view the value of their work. All professions have most who do their work in an honorable way and some who do not.


    No need to wonder any longer, 10 years as a nurse and about 5 years as a paramedic prior to that. We do know what docs to call because we have a call schedule, but most do as I said before, spend more time on the phone trying to get out of coming in than it would have taken to just come in and admit the pt. Ortho is the worst. They always want to admit to medicine and consult after the pt has been cleared medically, which is bogus as heck.


    And Dave, wasn't talking about what you have said since the thread got started. I was referring to what it sounded like you were trying to say in the PM. But heck, I could be wrong, Anyway, headed to Cheraw tomorrow to run a few dogs in Master series. Hope yall have a great weekend.

    In keeping with the title of this thread, I am certain we could all share pm's from the same source that are bizarre at the least.


    Just sayin'......

    Careful Stan. I'm thinking about re-posting some PMs here, since that is now apparently acceptable. Might want to reconsider your comments.
    Up until now, I've honored that unwritten rule that PMs are private. Which is more than some (one) here.

    Please put me on ignore. I have better thing to do with my time than be tempted to respond to your hormonal musings. Like plow my driveway.

    Go play your basketball game thingy. That's a good use of your time.

    If you are going to send me a PM and you expect me to keep it private, you had better get my commitment first. If the so called rule is unwritten then don't expect me to follow it blindly. Rude personal attacks via PM's, I ignore but the one I posted was one I could not ignore.

    Ten years for a nurse in the ER is a long time and I wouldn't be surprised if you have been there longer than anyone. Stamina you certainly have
