TWO DIFFERENT
DOCTORS' OFFICES


Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with
the same complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require a hip replacement.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed
the same day and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for
an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week
and finally has his surgery scheduled for a month from then.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen.

Next time take me to a vet!

Of course the doctor never says "I'm sorry Mr Swaggerman, your time has come, please step up here for your lethal injection":cheeky1:

Why do the vets give an alcohol rub on the spot they use for the lethal injection?? Is it to keep their needles clean or is it that they don't want to cause an infection??
That always puzzled me.....

It makes everybody feel better about something that can't possibly be sanitized - living flesh. So they swab it to make it look good and people mindlessly accept it.

As a ditch doctor (Paramedic) for 10 years now I actually firgured it out the swap cause a cooling effect on the skin drawing the vein closer to the surface making it easier to make the needle hit the vein itself. Dont ask me how I figured that out but it happened about 2 weeks out of medic school and to answer the next question yes she is still alive and very healthy.
