Sory for my lack of clarity.

I have two assistants.  My main one was on vacation and my backup
went with me to the patients house.

She had several loose teeth and I was afraid of aspiration so I
wrote a Rx for an antibiotic and made an appointment to come back
in a few days.

In the meantime, the main assistant came home.  So the next time I saw
the patient, the second assistant was with me.  I hadn't paid attention
and neither had the ladies husband.

But the patient o looked up and said .... "You're not the same one "

Unfortunately in most nursing homes they are treated as if they
didn't understand anything.

Don't be cruel ... assume they do ... This is what I bring up at
continuing education classes.  that I do for my nursing homes.
