    When we were nursing students, my friend walked to her pt, introduced herself, and asked "what brings you here?"
    Pt said "why don't you read the chart."

    Yes, pt was a nurse.

    But she was nicer the next day.

    *** My standard reply to this is "why yes I did read the chart. I asked the question to find out if YOU know why you are here". Suprising how often patients don't really understand why they are in the hospital.
