PostSubject: Making Acquaintances (Tess)   Mon Jul 10, 2017 9:56 pm

A new case of an exploding cauldron had been brought in to the ward, with a teenager being caught in the blast. It was not an uncommon occurrence -- after all, if you didn't teach children properly, they would never learn. However, of all of the incidents, this was among the worst in Adrian's mind. Burns, even in the Magical world, were difficult to heal fully at times, and until he'd had time to fully inspect the damage, it would be impossible to decide how this one was going to be classified.

Rubbing the anti-bacterial soap in to his hands, Adrián's eyes quickly scanned the area for a free doctor, nurse, healer, that could aid him. Noticing a younger witch, Adrián gave her a small wave, before motioning the room he was about to enter. "Would you mind lending me a hand?" He asked, though the man didn't wait for an answer before he slipped in to the room. If not that witch, then he was sure he could find another passing by in a few moments.

"Right, what do we have today then?" Adrián asked the male before him as he picked up the clipboard with information. Thankfully, the cauldron seemed to have missed the boy's face, but his shoulder and arm looked to have taken a beating. Keeping a neutral face, Adrián took out his wand and carefully removed the singed material from the wound before moving in for closer inspection.

"Mmm, as I expected. Second to third degree burns here. Which potion were you attempting?" Adrián asked the boy.

"Antidote of Common Poisons." The boy replied, grimacing slightly as he spoke.

"Ah, well, at least we know that the area won't grow infected." Adrián replied with a small smile. "We'll have you sorted in a few moments, don't you worry."

The Healer turned to see if his aid had come in behind him, and gave the witch a small smile. "Would you like to take the lead with this one?" Adrián offered, letting the witch have a go as he noticed her junior healer clothes, distinct in being of a different shade to his own. Whilst slightly unconventional, perhaps, Adrián was a firm believer in letting the newer members have a go, with guidance.

Tess was known to have bad mornings, but perhaps this one was the worst of all. It was common for her routine to switch depending on who she was mentoring under. Being one of the newest employees meant that she had yet to specialize, thus she went once a week in different areas to see where her true passion lied.

So far, she could list the places that she did bold want to be in. The spell damage room, while doable had the darkening wing of the permanent residents. The idea of dealing with psychological problems in patients was too hard to bear, even for someone like her.  She didn't mind the potions and plant poisoning only because she knew her way around a cauldron and the level of damage was usually minimal. Bugs and diseases? Not terrible, but not exciting either. It was like flipping a coin most days. So far, her favorite was actually the neonatal ward. She actually found herself liking the idea of helping bring mew life into the world. Her lead was informed her that she had steady hands for surgery...that is if she wanted to continue.

Still, it was later in the day and she wanted a warm bubble bath and a good book. Smiling at the thought, she found herself realizing she was being called over by an actual Healer. She quickly walked over with a small bit of dread at the thought of staying longer than her allocated time. Still, saying no was not a possibility.

"Would you mind lending me a hand?" Was all he said before he entered the patient's room.

She began to meticulously wash her hands even though she knew she would be doing very little. At the moment, she mostly observed and did minor things a nurse could do. She shuffled awkwardly as the Healer read over the notes of the poor burn victim. Listening carefully she did wrinkles her nose at the mention of the potion, because while it was not hard, it did have a few tricks that could go wrong.

"Would you like to take the lead with this one?"

Well she wasn't expecting that. She blinked a few times and looked at him as if she had misheard, but from his expression it seemed to her like she hadn't. She nodded and slipped gloves on before leaning down to inspect the burn on the boy's skin.

"Based on the burn marks, and the blistering, I am inclined to believe that second degree burns are the most likely suspect rather than third. While it's too early to truly see if it went past the dermis, there is no charring, at least nothing too serious" her eyes roamed over the skin, seeing the tissue looking ghastly.

Turning over to the Healer she looked tentatively wondering if she had made a mistake. Still, she found herself asking in a softer voice than expected:
"Perhaps we can disinfect and mend over with sole aloe salve, to cool the area before we see if any tissue was seriously harmed?"

The expression Adrián was given upon offering the witch the lead on the case brought a small but reassuring smile to the Healer's lips, trying to show it was okay for her to take the lead if she wanted to. Or, if she wasn't confident enough to do such a thing, then the option was available to the witch to decline it. If you weren't given the chance to progress, and learn on the job, then you would never thrive in this industry, Adrián had found.

Moving aside for the witch as she moved in to action, Adrián stayed close enough to be able to keep an eye on the witch, but not so close that he would be intimidating or standing over her. This wasn't a serious incident, they didn't need to rush, and therefore pressure was not a necessity.

Listening to the junior Healer go through the differences of the second and third degree burn, Adrián nodded slightly as she deduced it was more likely to be a second degree than a third. "Well done." Adrián praised the witch -- though not in a condescending manner, just in a manner that showed she had gotten that much right, whilst also reassuring the boy that the other Healer was more than capable of this job.

Noting the boy's look of confusion with the medical term for skin, Adrián added. "Skin, dermis means skin." The man told him, and the boy smiled in thanks. He'd make a note, for the debrief, to let the witch know that whilst talking to him she would more than likely use the medical terms, in front of patients -- children especially -- it was much easier to use every day terms, as it made them worry less.

The idea of the witch's on the treatment was one that Adrián nodded his consent.

"Healer..." Adrián came up short, realising he didn't know the name of the witch he was speaking to as he addressed the boy. "Will clean your wound, Scott. You may feel a little discomfort, but if you can try to sit as still as possible, we'll get through the work much quicker. Once we're cleaned you up, we'll be able to apply a salve that will cool the skin, and relieve the itchiness of the area." Adrián explained for his fellow Healer, writing down what course of action they were about to undertake on the boy's notes.

It was a bit embarrassing to admit, but she had very little interaction with humans that were awake. Tess wasn't very good with people, Rhian would often frown at her and say "Bit not good" and shake her head. It was awkwardly embarrassing how her hands shook at the thought of having to actually work on an awake, sane person who seemed to stare at her with an intense curiosity. She knew that if she ignored any thought of him being a person and instead a dummy she would do fine. She had to be.

As she began to explain the situation, she never even thought about explaining the situation to the boy but just what her mind was rambling on. She was naive that way, but she knew from the moment that the Healer corrected her diagnosis in laymen's terms she had made a mistake. It shook her a bit and she took her hands back unsure of what to do. The boy looked at her nervously and she herself looked back at him with an unsure expression.

Still, as the Healer gave her directions to continue with her diagnosis, she took a deep breath before moving towards the salves, potions and disinfectants. Moving towards the necessary items, she first slipped on the gloves to make sure everything was clean then she began to disinfect the burns with the salve. She knew the cooling would help and she did hope that it was not as dire of a burn as it looked. She wet the wrap with a base liquid to heal the burning before wrapping it around the arm and other injured areas. When she lifted her gaze she saw the boy staring at her intently and she smiled unsure of the expression that he was doing.

"Healer.." her mind worked on the people of this floor until she could place the name. "Garcia, would you like for me to do anything else?"
she asked curiously.

Adrián left the witch to her work as she applied the salves and potions necessary to treat the burns. They would need to leave Scott for a short while for the salve to take it's toll, then they could assess once more what they had previously diagnosed before completing the boy's treatment.

One thing Adrián had noticed, though, was how the witch had reacted to his correction -- aimed at the boy, and not her -- she'd faltered. In this scenario, it had not mattered. It wasn't life or death, but he noted to speak to her about it when they were out of earshot from the patient. After all, he'd not been criticising her, just aiding the patient.

When the Healer was finished, Adrián gave her a reassuring smile. "No, I think that will be it for now. We'll leave you to get some rest, Scott. The salve should soothe the skin, but if you get very uncomfortable, just call for us and we'll come back and make it easier for you to deal with." Adrián told the boy, putting the clipboard back on the end of the bed with the notes signed off.

Slipping from the room, Adrián waited for the younger Healer, closing the door behind her and lowering his voice for a moment. "Might I speak with you in the break room?" Adrián asked, but moved off in that direction without another word. Adrián moved in to the break room and set the kettle on. He took a few moments to make a couple of cups of tea before turning back to the younger witch.

"I'm really sorry, I don't know you're name. It's terrible of me. Rude, actually, please forgive me." Adrián insisted, hoping that she would be able to forgive him before he continued. "I'm Adrián, by the way. You don't need to call me Healer García.

"Anyway, I asked you down here because... I noticed you hesitated. I'm not telling you off, before you panic. I'm just curious as to why. You were doing great..." Adrián explained, his features creased with mild curiosity as he waited for his answer.
