Quote from CHATSDALE
what were they thinking about lying to them about
what about the other 1/3 what were they thinking of
Hmm... what could they be lying about?
"Yes, those are real eggs that the cafeteria sent up"
"No, that backless gown doesn't make you look fat"
"Your family is just so sweet to send us those cookies that reak of cigarette smoke!"
:roll :roll :roll :roll
Sorry, just couldn't resist!
I try as hard as I can to be as truthful as I can with my patients, because I feel it's respectful and the only way to be a nurse. However, there are some things that I attempt to sidestep (questions about why so and so hasn't visited, questions about whether I think the doctor knows what they're doing, etc.). But I never out and out lie to them!
