When you went into the exam room, lying on the counter next to the sink is the patient’s chart, a used syringe, several bloody cotton balls, and the half full bottle of narcotic medication she used for the patient.
Scenario 2: On Monday morning you and another medical assistant arrive at work at the same time. You both walk into the lab together and he says “Gee, I forgot to put these immunizations back in the refrigerator last Friday, oh well, I’ll just put them back now, they will get cold before any patients get here” He puts them back into the refrigerator and walks away.
Just answer both scenarios each are a separate response.
