Open Letter(s) Wednesday

Dear Cast Technician,

Thank you for the wonderful job you did yesterday changing my daughter’s cast but we, her parents, didn’t really appreciate being completely ignored.  In the future, both my husband and I would appreciate you also explaining cast care to us because although the patient, our daughter, may appear to be listening to you and nodding her head, you have to realize that a 5-year-old has the attention span of a newt and she isn’t going to remember anything you said.

Sincerely,

Dr. Mom

Dear Resident in the ER,

Thank you for seeing my patient, however, how you managed to confuse a brain tumor with a skin condition is beyond me.  Your consult note says my patient had a brain tumor removed a few years ago.  Really? Are you sure it wasn’t a basal cell carcinoma?  Suddenly my patient’s weakness and dizziness takes on a whole other thing when you write that she had a brain tumor.  She did not have a brain tumor removed. When she pointed to her forehead and said she had a cancer removed, you should have asked her to be more specific.  Getting a patient’s medical history is the first thing we learn in medical school!

Please amend the patient’s history.

Sincerely,

The Family Doctor

Dear Gilad,

I love your workouts.  I did the Abs workout last night and oh.my.dear.god.in.heaven, 18 hours later I can barely move my stomach.  Yes!  Thank you so much for kicking my ass last night.
