    I was in triage the other day. A female patient in her 30s walked in with her 10year old son. When I questioned what brought her to the ER, she responded ” I have ringing in my ears”. The boy looked at her and said ” go ahead and answered mom”. The mother responded ” it’s not the telephone ringing”.


    While doing conscious sedation on an 8 year old girl., the doctor gave her Ketamine IM for an elbow dislocation. The doctor was ready to reduced the elbow when the little girl tells the doctor ” you have two horns on your head”, are you the devil?

    One day a saw a child pouring his spare milk into the toilet bowl. I joked and told him “because the toilet bowl drunk milk, it will be fat like you!”

    The kid then said, “I don’t think so. That milk is LOW FAT.”

    I’m not sure that calling your patient “fat”, as you mentioned in this anecdote, is the best way to build rapport.
