Spain is calling you.

I have mixed feelings about this. We have to be much more cautious about our wording if we know patients are reading their notes. It's especially a problem in patients with Axis II diagnoses.

Are those the crazies?

We should all. But, college, weddings and life says otherwise.

Probably a good thing though. I've seen many instances where a doctor's notes have bit them in the ass when the malpractice suit rolled in.

They wrote that the patient was unpleasant?

You could probably say that.

Or more.

One time I got referred to a GI doctor. When I checked in I was standing at the receptionist desk doing the regular stuff and she asked to see my insurance card. I causally tossed it toward her on the counter, thinking nothing of it.

Somehow the doctor got word of this (greatly exaggerated, no doubt). He comes in the exam room and says, "Do you have a problem with my staff members? If you do, this appointment is over."

I was like, "wut" Not even knowing what he was referring to.

Anyway, I wonder what my notes said for that appointment. Probably not "pleasant."

It would have been much more realistic except for COVID19 issues.

Maybe in a few years.

Personality and developmental disorders, i.e., the disruptive, difficult, and destructive people who often don't know it or don't care.

See, it's just fine . . . if you stay away from the crazy people.

Unpleasant manners at the bare (bear) minimum.

We got a very one sided opinion of the witch doctor.

I get the hierarchy of diagnosis going and ask questions that some customers don't understand why I'm asking and for some reason they take offence. I had a young guy with a diesel truck which had some code for the DPF or regen and so many things are involved. I got a few questions in before he became pissed off. "I don't need this song and dance" as if I was trying to fleece him somehow. OK Buddy, figure it out yourself. I went back to work and the writer calmed him down and convinced him I could fix it. Turned out to be an air leak on the intercooler pipe.

Part of my job running a research group is troubleshooting when something doesn't work. I always preface my questions with, "Some of the questions I'm going to ask might make you think that I think you're an idiot, but that's not it. I just have to ask them to make sure I understand everything." After that, they're not offended.

It does, however, remind me of a friend in IT at a previous company, who, when confronted with "My computer stopped working", always started by asking "What color is the power cord?", rather than "Is it plugged in?", because he'd get them to look without offending them.

One of my best friends is an independent iT guy. He talks frequently about problems caused by "ID-10-T" users, and "knob actuator error" issues. He gets paid a lot of money for turning things off and turning them back on.

That's funny.

A smooth flick of the wrist, which resulted in the card being right in front of her.

Clearly, she didn't pay attention to your excellent card flipping skills. Instead of complaining, she should have given you a high-5 or a fist bump.
