You know you’re a psychiatrist when…
Had an elderly psychiatrist as a patient the other night. He’d fallen an gotten a nice bump on his head that needed a few stitches. As I was wrapping up the procedure I was just going over some basic wound care and follow up..
“Don’t let this keep you from doing the things you like, keep up your daily walks. I don’t want you hanging out in bed all day and getting a DVT”
“DVT? What’s a DVT?”
“It’s a deep vein thrombosis, you know those clots in our legs?”
“Ohhhhh yeah, that’s right. I think I heard about those in med school”
