I think you meant "Hypocritical Oath"

Posted on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 1:26 PM

There are signs everywhere in the medical clinic stating that due to H1N1, they no longer have magazines available, you are to remove any brochures you read, you need a mask if you’re going to cough, and you’re expected to use hand sanitizer when you approach the reception area to “protect yourself and our staff”. All seemingly reasonable precautions, until you actually approach the reception area.

No hand sanitizer visible behind the counter, no staff wearing masks, Plexiglas window all the way open with the receptionist with hands all over your health card and paperwork is hacking up a lung, sniffling, sneezing, and blowing her nose all over the place! Then she starts doing a mailout to patients about their new waiting room rules –and she’s LICKING the envelopes!


They don't allow you to call in prescrition refills, so I am stuck in this freaking Petri Dish getting covered in Lung Butter until my overworked Doctor can come out of a room with a visibly ill guy, not wash his hands, and hand me a germ-laden prescription sheet...
