A staggering number of grown adults don't understand basic facts about the human body, and it's a shame that they're no longer required to attend health class. Doctors are on the frontlines of healing illnesses as well as curing human stupidity, and they often get asked more stupid questions than Google.
Healthcare workers shared moments on the job that made them say, "I can't believe I need to have this conversation with an adult," and they'll make you feel like a genius.
Got placed doing a rotation in the orthopedic floor of a big hospital in a rural area of Southern California. I was doing my rounds and saw a patient out of bed and walking around the floor following a knee replacement. She had a cane in her hand that she was carrying like as a solider would carry a rifle. I asked what she was doing and what she thought the cane was for. She replied she thought the cane was for pushing people out of her way since she's now "handicapped" and it wasn't to help her walk on her post op knee. -s_dot_p
