Slimm and I are trying to take care of a gentleman who is a guest of the County in their local Adult Detention Facility. He’s been vomiting, has a little bit of a fever, and describes a very sharp pain that started over his right kidney, then has slowly started moving down lower in his abdomen.
So he has a kidney stone.
I’m feeling generous, so I’m planning on hooking him up with some Fentanyl and Zofran. I like giving people narcotics, especially if I think they might need some, they aren’t a jackass, and they don’t beg for narcs.
Slimm is getting an IV.
“Owww, man! That hurts!” He of course yells this out just as Slimm gets flash, and jerks his arm back at the same time, blowing the IV attempt.
“Come on, man, it doesn’t hurt that much, and now I have to do it again.”
He gets everything ready again after putting a 4×4 over the previous puncture.
“Now don’t jerk this time, man. I need to get this IV so we can give you some pain meds.”
“Big stick on three. One, two, thr-”
“AWWDAMN! SONOFABITCH! MAN! That HURTS!”
“Come on, man, it doesn’t hurt that bad.”
“Shit, man, yeah it does.”
“Man, you’re just trying to hurt me because I’m black.”
“You dumb bastard. I’M BLACK TOO, YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE!”
No narcs for this guy. Works for me. Less documentation, anyways.
