I was there today. As soon as she saw me, it was, “Ut oh! Here comes trouble!”
Then later, I said that I was feeling sad that HCWs are being treated so poorly. She said, “I stopped putting up with it YESTERDAY! For the second time in my career, I FIRED a patient!” I asked why. Doctor said, “She was just mean. Mean to me. Mean to my staff. So I told her that she would be happier elsewhere.”
I have another appointment in three months. (I’m high risk for anal cancer…and she KNOWS I had c-diff) but this time I’ll make a note on my calendar.
