A 5-year old daughter of an Irish couple was admitted in our ward. They were touring the U.A.E when their daughter had an episode of acute bronchitis. They stayed for 5 days. On the last day of their stay, they asked their attending pediatrician for a medical certificate so they can extend their flight.
My colleague, upon seeing what the doctor wrote, said, “Doctor! You cannot write like this!”
This is what the doctor wrote:
The patient so and so, diagnosed with acute bronchitis needed to stay in the hospital for 5 days, (blah, blah, blah.)…so the patient is not fit to fly.
(Doctor, the patient is not a bird!)
