Today, I punched a few numbers into the Spreadsheet of Doom that will determine how many 'remote Northern Territory Indigenous communities' NATSISS should survey. And then in the evening I chatted with my brother, who told me what might be the most WTF story I've ever heard from a medic:

Earlier this week, my brother was on a break in Darwin Hospital, standing near a stairwell, when a patient made a request of him. He didn't mention her exact age, but she was an adult Aboriginal woman, and she asked him to hold her hand when she went downstairs.

Before clicking the cut, see if you can guess why she needed him to do that (and no, my brother's laddish charm is not the answer).


Answer: She had never used a stairway before.


Unrelated, today is the second anniversary of one of the better decisions I ever made :-)
