Dietitian: WHAT DO YOU WANT? TO EAT!?
Patient: I don’t know. I don’t have any appetite.
Dietitian: YOU MUST KNOW WHAT YOU WANT? TO EAT?
Patient: No, I really don’t.
Result: the dietitian did not give her any dietary prescription or advice, and reported her on the chart as demented and feeble-minded.
Fortunately for all concerned, her doctor disagreed with this assessment. Hospital dietitians are a breed apart, folks.
