Rude Nurse

Monday, November 07, 2011

I went to the doctor today to have some fasting blood work done today. The nurse asked me if anything changed and when I said I had new insurance she went off about having to redo all the lab paperwork. She slammed things around and made it very clear to me she was not happy. I then sat there for an hour as patient after patient came in, announced they were getting blood work done, and then got seen before me. I was afraid to complain and have to wait even longer but I feel like I should so something. I do not want to cause problems but I do not want to be a door mat either. In all the excitement and nerves of starting a new job I did not say to myself, “Oh, I better call my doctor” but now I wonder if other people do. I keep wondering if I am the exception and that is why the nurse was so upset. I would love to get other people’s takes on this.

  I would definitely let your doctor know. I certainly understand that people can hav a bad day, but this is unacceptable!

    emoticon I agree with Crystal, that if your Dr. is affiliated with this lab, I would alert him at the least. Maybe something could be said to the nasty thing!!

    I would bring it up to the Doc when you get your results and ask to speak to the office manager.

    If the lab is in any way associated with your doctor I would let him know. Even if they are not directly affiliated he can let people know not to have their lab work done there. If they are affiliated then he can take actions to *hopefully* try and change her rude behavior.

    Is this lab in your doctors office, or is it an outpatient lab? If the lab is IN with your doctor..it would be good to let him know, that way his attention is brought to the rude worker and she can be spoken to about it. If it's a separete outpatient lab..there is nothing your doctor can do. I'm sorry that woman was so rude to you..there is no need for that!
