I Need to Say Goodbye to My Family

He handled an incredibly difficult tanking patient admirably well, but Dr. CF made one big mistake.

When your patient tells you that he is about to die, you don't tell him that he isn't.

It never fails.....the patient that tells you "I think I'm not going to make it" usually doesn't make it. It's happened to me too many times to ignore.

Why is that?
