Word was going ’round the hospital about a stinky envelope dropped off at one of the primary care physician’s offices.
A patient was given three stool sample cards and three flat wooden sticks with which to retrieve three samples of stool from the toilet bowl. You probably know where this is going.
The aforementioned envelope contained said stool samples. When opened, fumes from said envelope caused the eyes of the primary care physician’s secretary to water and burn.
The patient had used the wooden sticks as makeshift knives to cut up pieces of stool about a half inch thick and to place these “stool samples” onto the cards.
No word on whether the stool samples were positive or negative for blood.
I think the secretary’s puke got in the way.
In case anyone gets to this post by searching “how much stool should I include on a stool sample card” … remember the old “Brylcreem” commercials?
