Today, a patient was late for a psychiatry appointment, after having missed his previous two. I am the medical student on the team that was supposed to do his assessment. I said, "You snooze, you lose." Everyone stopped and looked at me. Apparently, he missed them because he has narcolepsy. FML

Wow, next time, read the patient's chart before going to meet with him. If we nursing students can do it, surely you medical students can do it too.

Narcolepsy isn't funny. Narcolepsy is a condition in which a person will fall asleep at random times and it can be very unfortunate and at times extremely dangerous for the person with the condition.

how in the world does that justify bullying??? does this mean doctors get to make fun of their patients just for being sick, possibly with a condition they were born with? NO!
