Large urban city family practice clinic which employs physicians and nurse practitioners

Today is another busy in your family practice clinic You note your next visit is a work in for ear pain The patients are a set of four year old twins The entire family has been coming to the clinic for years which is probably why they were worked in despite your full schedule You review the chart before entering the room to familiarize yourself with these patients

When you enter the room you note a Caucasian woman who appears to be about 40 years old She is well groomed and appropriately dressed for the weather There are also two boys who appear to be about 4 years old who are sitting on the exam table playing games on their tablets and chatting to each other

You introduce yourself as you always do and ask what brings them to the clinic today

The mother states “Tommy woke up in the middle of the night saying his ear hurt so badly it woke him up He says it hurts to touch Paddy has had a cold for a few and been talking about his ears popping and feeling stuffy I thought it was just the cold He woke up this morning and said his ear really hurts too He also feels warm to meâ€
