The Patch

During a patient‘s two week follow-up appointment, he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his medications.

“Which one? ” I asked.

“The patch. The nurse told me to put on a new patch every six hours and now I‘m running out of places to put it!”

I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn‘t see. Yes, the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now, the instructions include removal of the old patch before applying a new one.
