I am stuck with a dilema at work, and it's killing me.
The story is one of my two new PA's has horrible breath. I'm talking about "Stink". It's unbearable. And, I don't know how to tell her.
Since the PA's are new, my sister and I are not yet comfortable having them see patients all by themselves. We always review the cases and see the patients briefly after they have been seen by these PA's. So, they would present the cases to us after seeing their patients.
I find myself not wanting this PA to open her mouth at all. But when she presents the cases, she keeps on getting so close to me. I told her several times that since we were busy, she didn't have to present; I could just read her notes. But she continues to talk and talk and talk...Most of the time, I find myself steering my head away from her or walking really fast so she would be behind me. But, sometimes, she caught me by surprise, and...OMG!!!!!
My sister can't stand it either, but neither one of us wants to tell her. We don't want to offend her or hurt her feelings. At, the same time, it's unbearable. One of these days, you'll find me falling stiff like a bird laying at the bottom of a cage.
What am I to do?????
