"... You'll Find in Every Hospital... and How to Deal Wth Them."
10 Terrible Patients.... was brought to my attention. The blog is an on-line nursing degree archive, so taken seriously by their readers.
The 10 Terrible Patient descriptions (read the article for the details):
1. The Paranoid
2. The Penny Pincher
3. The Hypochondriac
4. The Complainer
5. The Talker
6. The Flirt
7. The Know-It-All
8. The Mind Changer
9. The Needer
10. The Deal-Maker
While I cannot imagine how hard it is to take care of strangers all day long, it does seem kind of sad that something like this is written about folks in the hospital.
That said, I see myself in several of those. I guess I'm not good patient, either. Is the only "good" patient one that's in a coma or dead?
