    "I'll check on that for you"..usually stated when I already know the answer amd know that it's not what the pt/family wants to hear. Sometimes this has bought me enough time to have someone else do the dirty deed of addressing the issue of better yet have the situation change so that it much more acceptable to the pt/family.
