It was November last year when I was assigned to handle a certain patient. He was Mr. Choi (not his real name), a Filipino-Chinese male in his 40’s with chronic renal failure who was about to undergo another creation of an AV fistula. We knew him quite well already since he was “comebacker” (a term we used in our station to identify patients who were frequently readmitted
on our station). He is a married businessman with two children who are already in their early 20’s. By his looks and his choice of room (he always chose the most expensive suite room), we knew he was rich.
