Someone who works with teenagers in a clinic told me about how a teen was so busy on his phone when in clinic that he couldn’t remember anything that was explained to him about his medical plan. The nurse said that she had to say, “Put the phone down” several times before the teen put down his cell, and then she was able to get him to listen. I may not need to say this, but perhaps it’s not clear to everyone, when you are in a clinic, getting care for yourself or someone else, put away your cell phone and concentrate on what is going on around you. To stay on the phone is rude and a waste of your time and the clinic’s.
