Here's a helpful tip for my patients in the ER. There is this stuff for sale at most stores everywhere in the country. It comes in preformed 'bars' if you will, and, when combined with water, will wash away the accumulated dirt, hog shit, sweat, and 'body odor' from the previous three weeks. "Soap" may also be used to clean your clothes! See, if you come in to the ER smelling like you just wrestled a skunk then you are a lot less likely to get the kind of 'hands on' care you might expect. We will also talk about you at the nurse's station in unkind ways and speculate about your family and their hygiene habits as well. A picture is included above so you can see what 'soap' is and assist you in its purchase. It is not as expensive as a pack of cigarettes!
