Those new ideas came back…

Okay, get this one for a character:

Nurse:

Personality trait[s]: gets angry when patient calls her more than one time; after this, nurse will make patient wait until patient has called several times before going to see about him/her and when nurse goes to see about the patient, will accuse patient of not doing as told or something appropriate to the action under consideration.

3 doctors on case because patient needs primary care doctor, kidney doctor, and a liver doctor

Personality trait[s]: don’t consult each other before telling the patient his/her findings; either one can/will tell patient patient is dying while one or the other of the three left to speak will say the patient is getting better. OR make each say something different, for example: [1] You’re dying. The liver has quit functioning properly, therefore the kidneys have failed as a result. [2] Although you’re in critical shape, if we [_____], you will soon be on your feet again. [3] Sorry, sir/miss, we haven’t received all the results of your tests yet so it’s difficult to make a diagnoses here. AND let those messages to to patient in the same day.

Yep, based on a true happening, but what the hey, isn’t all fiction based on non-fiction somewhere along the line?

About lprobinson64

I have been writing short stories for 25 years and am now working on my first novel. Besides writing, I love to read a great variety of genres with crime/mystery/fantasy being at the top. Dean Koontz is my favorite author, but there are so many more I can't list them all. I also like to crochet, sew, and do many kinds of crafts. Being a retired school teacher sure helps me find the time for all my favorite activities. Can't understand why people don't like retirement. It is a good time to follow a new dream.
