ETOH and Hospital Interpreters

In EMS and the ED many situations involve “2 beers.”

Similarly, in the outpatient clinic when you have a patient that doesn’t speak English, they will bring a family member to interpret. That family member will, however, have 2 kids.

They will cry.

They will touch things they shouldn’t.

Why do such things come in pairs? The world may never know.
