Woman Seeks A&E Treatment for Broken Fingernail

Quote:
A woman turned up at a Kent accident and emergency department seeking treatment for a broken fingernail, an NHS trust has revealed.

NHS West Kent said the woman, who attended the A&E over a recent bank holiday, was "not admitted and politely sent on her way".

The trust said another person asked to be admitted because their new tattoo was red and sore.

It is urging people to think carefully before they seek emergency treatment.

NHS West Kent, which said it had experienced a 7% increase in patient numbers over the past two bank holidays, warned that people with minor ailments could stop others from getting "life-saving care".

'Think twice'

A&E staff were also asked to hand out repeat prescriptions, according to the trust.

Nikki Luffingham, of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust, said: "Please think twice this bank holiday before seeking emergency care for minor ailments.

"Our A&E departments are highly specialised places for patients who need urgent medical attention and potentially life-saving care.

"By seeking the right kind of care, you are not just helping yourself but dozens of other people we will be seeing in our A&E departments at the same time who really need our help."

NHS West Kent has urged people to contact NHS Direct to find out what service would be appropriate.

People are stupid. I swear these kinds of stories always remind me of the lady who called 911 because she had vaginal bleeding. She also had a history of this every month for years and years and never made the connection that it was fucking normal.

have you had a look in the 911 section? there's some calls in there that'll make you face2palm even more. i found a site that had examples of 911 calls to show scenarios where one shouldnt use the 911 number...

there was a woman who called to complain because they wouldnt pay her social security payments (or something like that) because she'd assaulted a cop

a guy who rang to say his wife wouldnt make him dinner

a woman calling to say something along the lines of "there arent enough trees for the squirrels"

i think someone also posted one of an old aged pensioner who rang in to ask for someone to go over and open his/her beer

Re: Woman Seeks A&E Treatment for Broken Fingernail

I haven't looked in that section but I will. I am not surprised at some of the calls. I was on a call once where a lady stated that she was assaulted but when we got there she said the thought she might have been assaulted.

she decided she hadn't been and we went back to the station with a refusal
