I just don't understand why people don't medicate their kids. Your two-year-old has a 105 fever? For two days? What, no Tylenol or Motrin? Oh, I see, you were waiting to see what we say is OK to give to your kid. No call to the pediatrician, huh? Oh, ok. What's that? Your four-year-old fell down and hurt his arm two days ago? And it still hurts? Did you give any Motrin? Oh, I see--you brought him in last night, but you had to wait more than a half hour, so you changed your mind? Ok, so you brought the poor kid home and dragged him back here this morning and HE IS IN PAIN AND YOU NEVER MEDICATED HIM???
Contrast this to the woman who came in with dental pain after an extraction who has been taking SIX tylenol. Every TWO HOURS. Around the CLOCK. FOR THE LAST TWO DAYS. Oh, and now your stomach really hurts? I bet it does.
Ma'am, you now have much worse problems than your dental pain.
