...if you think you're having a bad day.
Yesterday, an unbooked lady* came in to labour ward and promptly delivered a pair of slightly premature, low birth-weight twins. Surprise!
Once she was cleaned up, the labour ward sister did her booking bloods, and it turns out she has syphilis. Surprise surprise!
After that, we got the pret-test counsellor in and... you guessed it... she has HIV as well. Surprise surprise surprise!
