I had a patient interview today that went fantastically. I really feel better about interviewing and have almost all the main parts of the history memorized.
All except for one part of it.
Him (dark-skinned): "I have a lot of family back home."
Me: "Home being India?"
Him: "Noooo, actually, I come from Venezuela."
I squirm in my chair now, just thinking about it. Why would I say that? The instant it came out of my mouth, I was like, "What the heck, K8?"
Luckily, not making sweeping generalizations for the rest of the interview seemed to save me.
Dag nab it.
