8 am: Blood sugar 802. On call doctor told patient to call 911. Please call as soon as office opens.
Not so funny, huh? This was a diabetic patient, but there is no way that her sugar has ever been close to 802. She's quite well controlled.
By the time we got the husband on the phone, he was feeling terrible.
She just left in the ambulance, and I realized that I was holding the monitor upside down. Her sugar was 208.
Boy is he going to be in trouble.
