My phone rings on Friday at 4 pm: a skilled nursing facility in a rural area 60+ miles away has a patient with a problem. They know something isn’t right with an ankle wound and they want someone who can take a look at the patient before the weekend, when per diem staffing is the norm. None of the answers to my questions fits a pattern that can be easily addressed. I decide to make the drive. Fortunately, I take a student.
