Maxfield has to undergo a series of Blood tests to determine why he has a low white blood cell count. So far they have taken his blood 4 times and he is scheduled to have blood drawn 6 more times in the next three weeks.
We need to see a blood specialist after all the results come back.
Lauren called the pediatrician after the last test to check on the results as well as get information about the specialist. She was put on hold so the nurse (the same nurse from this story) could retrieve the info. After a few minutes the nurse comes back to the phone and says,
“Yes Lauren, you were holding to get information about the Oncologist”
Lauren gulps and says, “WHAT?”
The nurse, I guess hearing the concern in Lauren’s voice says “Oh I’m sorry. I meant the Hematologist.”
To which Lauren responded, “Don’t scare me like that!”
I know that in pediactrics Hematology and Oncology go hand in hand. I know there are a lot of Hematologist/Oncologists doctors. But seriously does the nurse have to use the "O" word.
This nurse is absolutely a fucking idiot and has no Phonse-side manners.
