"I'd like you to see bed 14 and give her some stress management resources. She's experiencing
significant levels of work-related stress and she's having trouble coping on the job," says the ER
doc. And how does the Fried Social Worker respond?

"Listen, I've been working my butt off this entire shift trying to get your patient in bed 12 into a
nursing home! There's a domestic in 8 who's been waiting over an hour to see me. The medics just
brought in a suicide attempt, and I still need to get medical equipment for your patient in 19. Triage
is paging me to see a walk-in who's in crisis, and you want me to drop what I'm doing to see
someone with work stress? Lemme tell you about work stress, doc ..."
