Meet John, Mr. and Mrs. Doe

Moving to the US for training and work has its challenges. Linguistic and cultural are among those. A colleague of mine was on call for the pediatric intensive unit. He came to USA from Guatemala for training. He was called to the emergency room for trauma involving not yet identified kid. " We have her an 8 year old John Doe, with head injury and splenic laceration, non intubated, stable vitals, will need monitoring in the ICU" said the ER physician on the phone. By the time he got to ER the parents of the kid showed up
" Hi John.. Hi Mr. Doe..Mrs. Doe"
The kid gave him a weird look and both parents were looking at each other wondering.. Is our kid going to be treated by this idiot!

Again that was not me! it was a collegue from Guatemala..
