Dear colleagues

Absolutely true!!!  the patients tell the story.... if we know how to listen

Short story
teen ager comes to ward with huge hematemesis.Her mother shows a chiken
bone the girl has vomited with the blood-
some days before   she had suffered a problem while eating ..later feels
chest
disconfort, malaise, fever..Goes to doctor gets a RX and is sent home with
flu diagnosis...nobody paid atention to the incident.
The bone had eroded
the esophagus and produced an aortic tear...she died days after being
repared the lesion
nobody listened the true story
