Not the sharpest needle...

When admitted to the hospital, you usually have an on call doctor come in to evaluate you and write up any instructions or tests they think you should have done... These were the orders the on call doctor gave.

The circulation leg cuffs to your right are usually ordered for patients that are immobile for long periods of time, or those with blood clotting issues... not for patients who come in because they can't stop getting up to go to the bathroom, especially those who when they need to go to the bathroom, need to go fast! I barely have enough time to unplug flo from the wall, let alone bend down to unstrap these bad boys. Needless to say that they only stayed on long enough for me to take the picture. However, I am trying to find a way to rig 'em to work on my shoulders and neck. heehee.

...Now if you will excuse me, the techs are here to do the chest x-ray he also ordered (for some odd reason)

They do the chest x-rays to look for pleural edema.

They look for pleural edema when they don't know what they should be doing, but feel the need to take affirmative action (of some sort).

Whoever this doc is, he/she needs to finish med school?
