It's always a special night when a patient like this is the first one you triage.
Hi, first patient I've seen today at Hood Hospital, what's up?
Oh, you know, low back pain.
For how long?
Well, how long is some time for you, ma'am?
Well... let's see. It's been on an off. It always kind of hurts. I think it first started in 1993, though.
It's never a good start when your reason for visit is older than some of our volunteers, but it gets even better.
Yeah. Alright then. Any allergies?
Yes! I'm allergic to ALL medicines. All of them. Prescription and over the counter. All medicine.
Wow. That's too bad, seeing as how that also means we can basically do nothing to help you here. But if you'll excuse me, I need to take my daily dose of face palm now.
