Dialogue Seven (A traffic accident)
Doctor: What seems to be the problem?
Patient: Well, I was crossing the road, where a car came round the corner too quickly, and when the driver saw me, it was too late to stop. I was knocked to the ground, and when I got up ,my left arm and elbow were grazed and now, I have a pain in my ribs.
Doctor : I'll just take a look. Where does it hurt?
Patient: It's hard to say. It hurts all over.
Doctor : Does it hurt when I do this?
Patient : Ouch! The pain is very bad when you press here.
Doctor : You arm and elbow seem to be all right. But, to be on the safe side , you'd better go to the X-ray Department. When the X-rays are ready, bring them back to me to examine.
Patient: OK. See you later.
Doctor: See you then!
( Ten minutes later, the patient brings back the X-ray plates)
Patient: Here's my X-rays.
Doctor: I'll just take a look at it. Everything is all right, except here, see it? There's a hairline fracture.
Patient: Is it serious?
Doctor: No. It's not very serious, but you should take two or three weeks off work, and rest in bed as much as possible.
Patient: Should I take some medicine, doctor?
Doctor: All right. I'll give you some herbal medicine to help you heal quickly. In addition, I will prescribe
you some medicine for oral administration. Here is a prescription. Take it to the chemist's. please take the medicine according to the instruction.
Patient: Will I need to be put in plaster?
Doctor: No, it isn't necessary. I have presribed you a tube of ointment
