Doctors and Medicine : Does That Hurt?
Does That Hurt?
A paramedic had gone to an automobile accident and was checking a
patient who was lying on the road for injuries. As she knelt beside him
and probed him, she asked, "does this hurt?" or "does that hurt?" After
each probe, he replied, "No."
When she had nearly completed her examination, she shifted to a better
spot from which to finish the examination and after her next probing
question, he exclaimed very loudly, "That hurts!"
When she asked where, he looked up at her with a look of real pain on
his face and said, "You're kneeling on my fingers!"
