A cranky older gentleman when informed that he must wait until he is transferred to Phase II recovery to get dressed and leave:
"You call this a hospital? It's more like a laboratory."
Follow up: In my report to the Phase II nurse, I mentioned that the patient was "a little grouchy". The Phase II nurse stopped by later and accused me of giving her a grossly inaccurate report. She said "Grouchy was not the word. That guy was actually an asshole". Ahhh...technicalities. Tomato/tomaahto. I guess one person's grouchy is another person's asshole.
