Life, Sickness and Death

Life, Sickness and Death

0 INK

A highly-trained team of doctors working out of Double R Memorial Hospital crack the medical mysteries that nobody else could crack.

714 readers have visited Life, Sickness and Death since BensonEternal created it.

Introduction

Hello. Welcome to Double R Memorial Hospital. You may not have met me before. I'm the acting CEO of this hospital. My name is Michael Simmons, and don't you dare try calling me "Mike". Anyway, I'm sure since you're here because of one of the four open spots in the Diagnostics team, right? I'm sure you know you'll be working under Dr. Bowman if you've made it this far. You'll have to do some paperwork, but trust me, it's not a lot to ask for considering I'll be trusting you to not kill anybody under my watch.

RRMH OFFICIAL CHARACTER CONTRACT
NAME:
GENDER:
MEDICAL SPECIALTY:
BACKSTORY:

Oh, you're done already? Huh. Those contracts must be shorter than I thought. Well, go to the office over there and give it to Joel. Er, that's Dr. Bowman to you. Good luck with the job.

CHARACTERS

HOSPITAL BRASS
CEO: Michael Simmons

DIAGNOSTICS TEAM
HEAD OF DIAGNOSTICS: Dr. Joel Bowman
DOCTOR: Dr. Alistar Williams
(3 more open spots)

Toggle Rules

The only rule in this RP is that you can't be omni-present. You aren't a god doctor who can cure cancer and AIDS, and unless the plot allows for it you can't take some ridiculous leap of logic to crack the case. Keep in mind you're only human.

DR. BOWMAN
"So...let me get this straight. Five other departments in two other hospitals haven't managed to find out what's causing this dude's tummyache? Give me a break, Mike. I have...things to do."

The voice of Dr. Joel Bowman echoed throughout the hallways of the hospital. He was talking to the CEO of the hospital about an unsolved medical case.

MICHAEL SIMMONS
"Don't call me Mike, Dr. Bowman. It's much more than a 'tummyache'. Diarrhea, cough, chills..."

DR. BOWMAN
"Ah, yes, this changes everything! He has the flu, Mike."

MICHAEL SIMMONS
"...He tested negative. There's also one other thing."

Mike took out a photo of a rash on said patient's abdomen.

DR. BOWMAN
"Yeah, see, I only generally take cases where the patients are in any actual danger. Give him a bottle of ibuprofen."

MICHAEL SIMMONS
"He also presented with hepatosplenomegaly."

Bowman stops in his tracks and turns around.

DR. BOWMAN
"And why exactly did you not tell me this first?"

MICHAEL SIMMONS
"I'm assuming you wouldn't take too kindly to an enlarged liver. Usually these types of things are boring to you, Joel."

DR. BOWMAN
"The liver? Yeah, that's boring. The spleen also being enlarged is moderately less boring. Give me the file. I'll present it in the diagnostics office. Oh, and take off that tie. It's pretty terrible."

Bowman walks into the diagnostics office, puts up the file and starts taking notes on the blackboard attached to the wall.

DR. BOWMAN
"Alright, people. Differential diagnosis for a stomachache, spleen-liver enlargement and chills. Once we have some theories, we'll talk to the patient and figure out what his deal is."

Dr. Williams spoke up first;
"It might be bacteria manifesting tricking the Lymphatic system into killing to many blood cells. Or even a virus? There are a plethora of possibilities and I am only picking from two of the most common, let's examine the patient more first."

"Uh, Dr. Bowman..."

Cameron Murphy ran into the room looking dishevelled and breathing heavily.

"Dr. Bowman...Dr. Williams...the patient...he started seizing during a routine work-up."

DR. BOWMAN
"Seizing? Are you sure we're talking about the same patient here? There's little to no indication of a neurological problem. Ugh...now we're going to have to book him. Murphy, CT scan the head. Williams, interview the patient. Ask him the usual questions but be sure to emphasize the drugs. He's 31, statistically he's probably on something."

Dr. Bowman walked out of the room and left the two doctors to think.

"Well than, it can't be a bacterial infection." Williams sighed.
"It could just be alcohol though." He said again, while gathering notebooks for the interview.
