I had a patient in urgent care a while back with a possible foot fracture. He told me that he slipped in the bathroom at home. Fair enough. The weird thing was that his BOSS brought him in to the urgent care clinic. Doesn't that sound a little fishy? I've had decent relationships with previous bosses I've had, but that seems above and beyond the scope of the boss-employee relationship.
As I see it, there are 2 possibilities:
1) The patient was sleeping with his boss as a shortcut to climbing the corporate rungs (less likely)
2) The guy actually slipped while at work and the boss was trying to avoid this turning into a workman's comp issue (more likely)
I suppose it's also possible the guy was telling the truth and he just had a really good relationship with his boss. But I tend to be skeptical of anything that any patient says.
