File this under "A Day in the Life"

I went to Walgreens to print some pictures off my phone and couldn't get to them on the mini card, so I asked the tech for help. She pulls a stool up next to me and plops down and starts messing around, Pretty soon the screen is lit up with rows of large (4"?) thumbnails of stool.

Yes, I work for a doctor and she asks me to photograph the twin's bowel movements. That's the directory the tech pulled up. She was disgusted. I tried to explain but she looked at me like I was some sikko with a poop fetish. But seriously, I have worked here for 4 months. The twins are 9 months, why? I'm literally afraid I'm going to be fingered in some underground poop porn bust.

Aside from that, I am still recording the food that the twins eat. They started on solids at 5 months and have gradually increased without incident, but I have to write down everything they eat and how much they drink. Don't you think doing this makes the poop pictures not necessary? Does anyone else work for a doctor?

you are not doing anything illegal - bring your boss's business card with you - give them the card if they have any questions

I also work for two doctors. We document all formula and solid intake and anytime baby poops. I just tell the parents of the poop was unusual, but usually they're normal and that's that. If it makes you uncomfortable maybe ask if they can keep a digital camera around the house for you to use for poop pictures? Best of luck!

I work for a medical professional, and while I've never been asked to do this, if I were, I would text/email them to her as soon as I took them, then delete them off my phone LOL! No need to keep seeing that haha!

Why care what the Walgreen's tech thinks?

Corina said...

Besides that who wants pics like that on their phone.

Sprak said...

Why the uppity attitude towards a Walgreen's tech? How mean and arrogant.

Agree. One group isn't above another.
