Vikram has had a bad fall. Mrs.Verma takes him to emergency Doctors Clinic
Doctors Clinic Receptionist Good morning, Madam
Mrs.Verma Can I see Dr.Raman? My son his hurt his knee.
Receptionist Did you make an appointment, Madam?
Mrs.Verma No. But then I hadn’t expected my son to have a fall and hurt himself. I couldn’t make an appointment for child accident, could I have? But I must have the child’s wound dressing urgently.
Receptionist Don’t get excited, Madam. The doctor does attend to emergencies, though normally the doctor is so busy that he can only see patients who have made prior appointment.
Mrs.Verma Then what shall I do? Shall I go to urgent care hospital?
Receptionist Please wait here, Madam. I’ll fit you in between the appointments. In the mean while, please fill in this form. Is the child’s knee painful bleeding ?
Mrs.Verma No. The bleeding has stopped.
Receptionist Please wait in the waiting room and I’ll
Call you the moment the doctor is free.
Mrs.Verma and Vikram join the group of people sitting in the waiting room. Dr.Raman comes to the door.
Mrs.Verma Yes. That’s me. Good morning,
Doctor Patients discussion
Dr. Raman I understand your son has had a fall and has nasty bruise. Come along young man. I’ll have a look at you.
An elderly woman gets up and hurries forward towards the doctor.
Elderly woman Oh Dr.Raman, you can’t see him first. It is my turn. I’ve made an appointment.
Dr.Raman Hello, Mrs.Sonu, I know it is your turn, but this child needs immediate attention. I’ll see you right after child’s wound dressing.
Dr.Raman It won’t be long, Mrs.Sonu. Please excuse me for a few minutes. Mrs, Verma, please bring your son into the treatment rooms.
All three of them go into the treatment rooms of Doctors clinic.
Dr.Raman (Examining the wounds). This is a nasty
Cut, but not too serious. There is nothing to worry about. I’ll clean it, put some tincture iodine on it and do bandage dressing lightly.
Vikram Oh! That hurts.
Doctor is examining the patient
Dr.Raman You are a young child. I’ll give you an injections to ward off any infection. There you are. That is a good boy.
Mrs.Verma Will he be all right doctor? Aren’t you going to give any prescription medicines?
Dr.Raman There is no need for any prescription medicines. He’ll, be all right. The knee will be all right. The knee will be a bit stiff for a few days. In case gets fever or the pain is too severe, give him one of these tablets?
Mrs.Verma After how many hours do I give him one of these tablets?
Dr.Raman Don’t give him a tablets unless he feels very uncomfortable with pain. Give the tablet, if he gets fever. Then come and see me again at Doctors clinic, in the morning. These tablets are only a precaution.
Mrs.Verma Do you think he’ll get fever, doctor?
Dr.Raman No. Don’t worry. I think he’ll be all right. But in case he does get a temperature, then come back to me again. Well, young man, be careful the next time you get off a bus.
Mrs.Verma Where do I pay your consultation fees and for the medicines?
Dr.Raman At the reception counter, Madam. Goodbye.
Mrs.Verma Thank you very much, doctor.
