Hahahahahaha.
A laldy once faked a stroke and I called a stroke alert. Seizures yes I expect that but the stroke got me messed up until the ER doctor recognized her, she got 2 IVs and rapid transport well then I felt dumb.
Had a guy do this to me once. ED gave him a sandwich and he left. Failed every stroke diagnostic in the book so I called it, can't say I regret it

I took a drunk lady in as an emergent stroke patient. Slurred speech and new onset coordination deficits, last normal time within the last 30 minutes. Partner says she "might have gotten into some alcohol" but didn't actually see her drinking. Patient swears up and down she hasn't had a drop to drink. Took her into the ED and she blew a 275. 🤷‍♂️
