Low and behold a surprise for all of us...in black sharpie ink, the following was on his chest: "Name is ______. Seizures. DOB 10/25/80. Takes Dilantin 100mg 3x a day. Haven't missed any meds. No drugs or alcohol. Call xxx-xxx-xxxx for additional info. Thanks."
Since I work at a large public hospital, it looked like a picasso painting. Wow! Finally a patient with some intelligence. Thanks to the magic sharpie, we called his wife from the number written on his chest and found out that he has uncontrollable seizures refractory to all current medical care. He took a train to our hospital b/c an outside hospital told him that we could do something for him, but seized before making it inside! He got admitted and hopefully was treated so that he can finally take a shower to wipe off his chest!
