Alright y'all. I just had to share this little rant with ya.
What is it about walking into a physical therapy clinic that makes you think that you don't have to fill out paperwork or bring your insurance cards?
Instance 1) I give patient her paperwork. She responds by saying, "Well, hasn't the doctor sent all my information over already? I shouldn't have to fill anything out."
Instance 2) Patient's grandfather gets up in my face about filling about his granddaughter's paperwork. "You should already have all her information. Why should I have to fill this out?"
Here's the deal though.....I ALREADY HAVE 85% OF THE PAPERWORK ALREADY FILLED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
Tell me of ONE medical office where the paperwork has already been mostly filled out for you in advance? Um, I was doing it as a courtesy. I can sure enough stop this gravy train if all I'm gonna get is harassment over stinkin paperwork.
Can you even imagine walking into your primary care physician's clinic for the first time and not filling out paperwork? Uh no, because there is usually about 6 pages to fill out.
My clinic has 2. Again, it's already 85% filled out.
Give me a break people.
Is it just that people just need something to complain about or they're not happy?
