Lovely elderly female patient who speaks not a ton of English. She comes to the clinic with a cough, nothing too serious. Uneventful visit. I prescribe a couple of meds, send her on her way.
As she's leaving, from the lobby of the clinic, she yells to me down the hall:
"Goodbye, doctor. I thought you were going to take me to bed!"
Everyone turns and looks. Patients, my colleagues, everyone. I walk down the hall, confused, to ask what she meant to say...
"I thought you were going to take me to hospital bed!"
"Oh. Oh, yes. No, you don't need the hospital."
"Yes, great. Thank you so much. See you next time."
She leaves. Colleagues are being slow to move on from this one.
