One of our techs approached me with this query, asked of her by one of my patients.
The tech, having worked in the ED for a while, did a little questioning of her own.
“How much do you eat”?
Well, not much.
“Do you take any drugs”?
only crystal meth.
“I wouldn’t ask him for any prescription for medicine to gain weight. I wouldn’t bring it up”.
A good tech is worth their, er, you know. In gold, most nights.
