Answered a first aid call a little while ago, and people just amaze me. Here's a woman that abuses the 9-1-1 system. I've had her as a patient twice in the past week. The first time, she wasn't too bad. But this time.. she was a different person. Bitching and complaining the ENTIRE length of the call. Didn't want to sit on the stair chair, didn't want to climb one small step, didn't want to do this.. Christ. It's challenging trying to be polite and kind to someone who is being nothing but disrespectful and ungrateful, but luckily I managed. It's sad when you go to give report to the RN and she looks at the report and recognizes the name. Long story short, she's at the hospital getting help for whatever her complaint is this time. Probably only a matter of time before she picks up the phone and dials 9-1-1 again though.
