One of the MSW's I work with who is a complete dog lover was petting the small dog of a hospice patient. The dog snapped and bit her nose and gashed it and she was gushing blood and the family did nothing ! She drove home bleeding and her mom found. Good plastic surgeon t a prestigious ospitl in our area. She got 15 stitches on her nose. She is a beautiful girl. She is sooooo traumatized right now from the whole event.And the family didn't apologize or even ask how she was. Let alone offer to call an ambulance. My heart breaks for her. She is so sweet and trusting.Talk a about occupational hazards.
