When you work in healthcare, you have heard it all! Here are a few classic favorites:

1. “Well I felt better so I stopped taking my medication.”

No, that’s why you are supposed to continue taking it.

2. “My pain is a 15 out of 10”

Unless you have a gun shot wound or are in childbirth, spare me. Your papercut is not that bad.

3. “We don’t believe in vaccination”

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I BLAME YOU FOR THE MEASLES OUTBREAK.

4. “I’m allergic to acetaminophen and NSAIDs. I can only take Dilaudid.”

Oh yeah, I’m sure.

5. “I only use herbal medications.”

Best of luck with that.

6. “Are you sure? Because that’s not what I read on the internet.”

Stop. Stop. I’ve heard enough, I am walking out.
