Working in the health sector implies that the doctor needs to know the patient beforehand. A doctor was grateful to his technician as the technician left a note for him regarding the patients before he went to check them.
Often occupied in the head, doctors are unable to gain that much personal knowledge regarding the patients, but fortunately Dr. Glaucomflecken an Ophthalmologist was lucky enough to have a technician who warned him about the patients beforehand.
Due to the warning note left by the technician, the doctor was able to save himself from a huge inaccuracy. The technician also mentioned in the note that he deserved a raise for the kind gesture. The appointment with the patient would have gone haywire if the technician wouldn’t have left the note.
The picture of the note left by the technician was uploaded by the doctor on Twitter and surprisingly the post went viral.
The note read, “She’s his wife, not his daughter.” The technician also highlighted boldly the word ‘wife.’ He also mentioned humorously that he deserves a raise for the little things like leaving the note regarding the patients before the doctor meets them.
The doctor also mentioned in his post, “My technician leaves me notes about things I should know before I enter a patient’s room.”
