Every once in a while a pt obviously becomes sweet on me. The last time it happened was a disgusting aging hippy in for narcotic OD, who almost went AMA and I had to go out in 10 degree weather with him while he threatened to leave, and had a cigarette. He kept telling me how I reminded him of his last girlfriend. The next day he gave his number to one of the day nurses to give to me.
Yesterday I had a voluntary ETOH detox, I'm not sure why he was in was in stepdown, perhaps because of his previous hx of ETOH detox seizures. He was very nice and I established a good rapport with him, and gave him his ativan on the protocol liberally. It was quite obvious by the end of the shift that he was sweet on me, as he tried to find out my marital status. When I told him that the next nurse was really nice, he said "But I like you!".
Anyways, I'm obviously a loser magnet. Why can't a rich, handsome single guy fall for me?
