Metamucil didn’t work

We called out for “sick call”. On scene pt says she’s constipated, and the Metamucil didn’t work.


Metamucil didn’t work

I asked how long it had been.

She said “10-15 minutes”.

I told her “it can take 6-12 hours”.

She handed my partner a box of Monistat and said “I got these, too. Will this work?”

You can hear my partner’s voice cracking when she said “where did you put these?”

After explaining what Monistat was for, and that she needed more time for the Metamucil, we got a refusal signed. We barely made it to the truck before we lost it.
