Corinne, the optometrist, speaks to Anil, saying, 'All right, let's check you out. You sit down here on this stool. You put your right hand over your right eye and read that chart on the wall over there.'
Anil puts his left hand over his left eye. The optometrist says, 'No, no, no. Put your right hand over your right eye.'
Poor old Anil puts both hands over both eyes. Corinne is, by now, becoming annoyed.
Anil continues to do things badly and Corinne becomes angry and says, 'All right, I'll fix you!' she mutters. She takes a paper bag out of the cupboard, cuts one hole in it, puts it over Anil's head, and demands, 'Now, read that chart!'
Anil reads it perfectly. The optometrist takes the bag off, and Anil begins to cry like a baby. Corinne then barks, 'Now, what's the matter with you?'
'Well,' sobbed Anil, 'when I first came in here, I had my heart set on wire frames.'
Hazel went to her family physician with her crying baby. Doctor Cassidy diagnosed right away that the baby had an earache and he wrote a prescription for ear drops. In the directions he wrote, 'Put two drops in right ear every four hours', and he abbreviated "right" as an R with a circle around it.
Hazel returned to the doctor after several days and complained that the baby still had an earache, but his bottom was getting really greasy with all those drops of oil.
Dr Cassidy was amazed and looked at the bottle of ear drops and realized immediately what had gone wrong. The Pharmacist had typed the following instructions on the label:

Peter, an 82 year-old man, went to see Doctor Lucan to have a full physical check-up.
A few days later, Dr Lucan saw Peter walking through the village with a stunning young woman on his arm. The doctor turned to Peter and spoke quietly, but clearly, 'You're really doing well, aren't you?'
Peter smiled happily, 'Oh yes, but I'm only doing what you said, Doc, "Get a hot mamma and be cheerful." '
Dr Lucan grimaced and retorted, 'I didn't say that, Peter. I said, "You've got a heart murmur; be careful." '
It was a stifling hot day and Mr Ryan fainted in the middle of a busy intersection.
Traffic quickly piled up in all directions, and a well dressed woman rushed to help him. When she knelt down to loosen his collar, a man emerged from the crowd, pushed her aside, and said, 'It's all right honey, I've had a course in first aid.'
The woman stood up and watched as he took the ill man's pulse and prepared to administer artificial respiration.
At this point she tapped him on the shoulder and said, 'When you get to the part about calling a doctor, I'm already here.'

If they did, Tim got it printed on a special 'allergy band' which was then placed on the patient's wrist as a reference for all other hospital employees.
On one particular occasion Tim asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies. The old dear responded by saying that she was unable to eat bananas.
Tim received a considerable surprise later in the day when a very irate son came out of the ward demanding, 'Who's responsible for labelling my mother 'bananas'?'
