best med rec this week by far

Medication reconciliation done on a 14-weeker prego who came in with shortness of breath:

1. Methadone

"I can tell you all about it--dose, how long I've been taking it, where I go to get it..."

"Are you taking prenatal vitamins?"

2. Oh yeah, I'm taking those

3. I have an inhaler, but I lost it.

"Do you have an ob/gyn?"


"Who is it?"

"I can't remember the name."

Father: "Do you mind if I go out? I left my kid in the car."

It's 3 a.m., and they just made runner-up for the Parents Of The Year award. Almost tied with the parents of the 6-week-old who fell off the bed because "he rolled a little." Send more nominations to me. The contest is ongoing.

Yikes. As a teacher, meeting with some parents, I used to think, at times, the state should require passing some kind of test, like a drivers liscense test, before before you could have children
