What's in a name?

  1. We received a bunch of patients all at once that had been displaced from their apartments due to a fire in the building. They were being triaged for possible smoke inhalation. We wrote down names as they came in - twins - 4 years old - Lamongelo and Orongelo.
    Later when the real forms were filled out and the names were spelled, they were Lemon Jello and Orange Jello!!!

    I asked my husband about those names last night. I posted the same names on a different thread, and I made him PROMISE me that he had ACTUALLY seen those names himself. Not some other examiner who TOLD him. And he absolutely swears with a straight face that he has claimants by those names (kids). He also swears that HE PERSONALLY has a claimant whose name is Rotunda and she's a 300# 12 year old.

    I still don't believe him. If they're HIS clients, why does everybody in the world know them?????????

    He's a quality control person for Social Security Disability claims examiners.
