Yesterday, I had a post on how medical school educated graduates manage diarrhoea.
Today, in outpatient, I had a 18 month old child who was being managed by a quack . . . And below is the snap of the medicines, he has been on.
And this is his prescription . . .
For those who could not understand the writing -
1. Ondansetron Syrup
2. Dexamethasone Injection
3. Ofloxacin plus Ornidazole Suspension
4. Ceftriaxone Injection
5. Aristozyme digestive enzymes.
The parents claimed that the baby was also prescribed Oral Rehydration Solution . . . But, there was no sachet to be seen . . . They claim that the baby was initially better, but later started to have diarrhoea and vomiting since last night.
And the most interesting aspect . . . Similar to yesterday's patient, this young boy weighed 6 kilograms . . . instead of at least 10 kilograms which a healthy child of this age should have.
