No good deed goes unpunished
A few months ago I got an emergency call from a small local hospital I cover - A pregnant woman was in advanced labor in their emergency room and they don't have Obstetrical Services. I immediately started to arrange rapid transfer of this woman to an appropriate nearby facility, while I raced to the Emergency Room in case she was really about to deliver. I arrived roughly 12 minutes after they first called me (I checked my watch, can't be too careful about these things) to find the woman in labor, basically fine, but around ten people standing around not really doing anything to help the situation.
So I fixed that. Examined her, scanned her, took a history (why couldn't any one of the other personnel there, including several MDs and assorted other "medical care providers" do this?), and made sure neither of my two patients was in any danger. I refocused the "administrative" personnel on getting that transfer going, rather than having to deliver the baby in the Emergency Room or the ambulance or something. She was term, prenatal care in another state (!) and decided to visit her aunt, then went into labor.
During the course of my examination of this woman, she started screaming at me - I examined her "too roughly," and she was angry. (Then I was angry, but I choked it back; after all, she's in labor, she's scared, all that. Maybe I was too rough? I was a bit anxious myself, trying to make sure we didn't have an impending disaster on our hands, and faced with a dead baby nobody is going to take my side and say, 'well, he didn't want to be too rough with the examination, so he couldn't really figure out what was going on.')
After a TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE delay, we got her transferred, and she went on to deliver safely; while I was happy about that I was still annoyed that I was the target of her anger, given all of the people around her who had done nothing to take care of her other than, well, call me to come take care of her.
The hospital where she was transferred notified me the next day that her blood and urine tested positive for cocaine and alcohol.
