Sometimes you pick up a chart and you see that you are getting to see more than one patient. Usually a parent will bring in both kids to be checked out, etc. The most I ever had was 14. This was from a shelter that literally dropped off a van of people who had been exposed to scabies.
Last week we had a mom and daughter combo. The mother was in for "std exposure." She found out her boyfriend had Chlamydia and Herpes, so she wanted to be checked out.
She brought her daughter, who was TWELVE YEARS OLD, with her so she could get Plan B. Plan B is the "abortion drug," meaning the twelve year old was already sexually active.
We referred mom to county health and daughter to the local pharmacy (you don't need a script for Plan B) and planned parenthood.
What a 2-fer. Like mother like daughter I guess.
