Today's Last Patient of the Night....

....was about 5 years old.  He had a cough, the same cough he has had for about a week and for which he has already seen his primary care on two occasions.  Nothing new about the cough and no new alarming symptoms he was just not Magically Better.

Partner in Crime brought in a child-sized gown for him to change into an mom immediately burst into tears.  Not because she was fearful for her child's health or unable to pay the bill.

"Give him another gown!", she shrieked, "it has clowns on it!  Take it off!"

Ohhhhkay.  I'll take the red nose off, sheesh.

Partner in Crime noted that all the kids' gowns have clowns on them.
