People get p*****off when you fix their disabilty
We had a patient who came in with a multitrauma who had wrecked their car and injured those in another car. The patient had taken too much oxycontin for her fibro. (Patients will always be too disabled to work but they will always be able to drive). Anyway, she was blitzed on narcotics. It wasnt her oxycontin but that is another story. While she was in the hospital she had problems tolerating her tube feeds and after alot of testing it turns out she has a gluten sensitivity. When she was told that she didnt have fibro and all she had to do was follow a different diet all she said was "I still get my disabilty checks right?"
