Now that is creative nursing

I asked my sixty-four-year-old Karen diabetic patient if he got the flu shot this year.

"Yes!" he answered. "At church."

Most of the local Karens attend one of two churches in Langley. Turns out the public health nurse showed up at the patient's house of worship one December Sunday morning and vaccinated the eligible congregants, with the help of the interpreter who had relayed that morning's sermon.
