Today's conundrum entailed figuring out how the doc could get "buddy taping" written as an order for say, a broken toe. Can't imagine why the hospital would even bother with this, but if they can charge $400 for the doc to write the order it should certainly cover the nurse applying a 12 cent piece of tape. Go figure.
Cripes just gave up. "I don't care if it's ordered, and I am not going to free-text it. It's too much of a pain"
Well, I like a challenge as much as the next person so tried every combination I could think of: tape, splint, buddy tape, buddy splint. Nope, none of those. Nurse tape, finger tape, boo-boo tape, toe tape, duct tape, toe shoes. Micropore splint. Nope, none of those either.
Suddenly, I pulled "Anatomic Splint" out of my a**.
Bingo. That will be $400, and it's not even that cool colorful duct tape like this:
