Bowel movement? What’s that?

23 y/o female c/o gastrointestinal pain, talking on cell phone in triage when nurse started asking questions.

Nurse: “When was your last bowel movement?”

Pt: “Bowel movement? What’s that?”

Nurse: “You know, when you went to the bathroom.”

Pt: “Why do you need to know that?”

Nurse: “Well, we need to ask questions to see what the problem is.”
