She probably just wanted a ride to Austin

Tonight I started to register a patient that might have had tuberculosis, or maybe just asthma. "Nancy" had come from Lockhart on an ambulance and a paramedic began to doubt her motives when she hopped out of the ambulance when it arrived at the hospital and began walking away. Guided inside, she was apparently a bit surly. After getting her into the system, but before going through the complete registration process, I guess Nancy decided to get aggressive with a nurse and walked out. The staff called security and the resolution is that I didn't have to be possibly exposed to TB.

Yay! No consumption for St. Murse.
