Out in triage, patient relations person comes in: "Do we ever just check a blood pressure? There's a 63-year-old lady out here who is asking."
Eh, it wasn't crazy busy at the moment, so I said, "Ok, send her in."
Lady: I just need my pressure checked.
Me: If it's really high, I might want you to stay to see a doctor.
Lady: Screw that, just check it.
Me: Well okey doke then. (Pressure is 145/93, pulse 87) Your pressure is a little elevated. Do you take your medications at home?
Lady: Always. Well, no. Sometimes.
Me: Have you been taking them lately?
Me: Why not?
Lady: Well, pregnancy.
Me: Whose pregnancy?
Lady: Mine! I'm pregnant with St Francis of Assisi's baby! A little mouse lives in my uterus. I'm not staying around here when you OBVIOUSLY don't know what you're doing. (Storms out.)
Me: Well, allrighty. Bye now.
Wonder what OTHER meds she's not taking.
