Friday the 26th May 2017 – half past 10pm.
A patient walked in declaring he needs mc for yesterday and today.
He was coughing.
After my yada yada trying to take history which he wasn’t cooperating with, I told him we can’t backdate MC. Anyway I need to examine him before giving one for today.
“I don’t need examination. I just need MC” he said arrogantly.
I just looked at him sarcastically smiling “Really? Suit yourself. My job isn’t to hand out MCs”
He “So who can give me for yesterday?”
I just reiterated my stand in fewer words & pointed to the door.
Thank God for the day off on the morrow instead!
