eighties arrived to have stitches removed from his thumb. He stated that he was in a hurry
as he had an appointment at 9.00 a.m.
I took his vital signs and had him take a seat. I knew it would take more than an hour before
someone would to able to attend to him. I saw him check his watch anxi...ously for the time
and decided to evaluate his wound since I was not busy with another patient.
On examination, the wound was well healed. Hence, I talked to one of the doctors to get the
supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.
We began to engage in a conversation while I was taking care of his wound. I asked him if
he had another doctor's appointment later as he was in such a hurry.
