This weekend I joined the Fox and Friends crew to talk common mistakes patients make. From driving oneself to the emergency department with a serious illness or injury (gunshot wounds deserve a 911 call, people!) to waiting out stroke symptoms (the inability to move your entire right side is a sign something bad is happening), I gave a few examples of patient mistakes I witness in my own practice. But, now, you weigh in!
As nurse practitioners and physician assistants I know there have got to be a few things your patients do that drive you absolutely nuts. What are they?
E-mail your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them as a comment below and I will compile a comprehensive list to be published as a blog post. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts! Bonus points for submissions that make me laugh.
