For those of you who have never had to deal with employer health forms, they are a freaking nightmare. A remarkable collection of stupid questions, redundancy, and more redundancy.
Today I'm completing job forms for one of my epilepsy patients, who works in sales. Questions from his employer include:
Is Mr. Shakes capable of working in sales during a seizure? (depends on what he's selling)
Would a seizure at work impair Mr. Shakes' job performance? (No! Who could resist an unconscious salesman who just wet himself?)
Will Mr. Shakes need to leave work to attend doctor appointments? (Of course not, I'll just swing by in the Grumpymobile)
If Mr. Shakes has a seizure, will it be necessary for him to leave work? (No, just leave him lying in the aisle)
Between seizures, is it safe for Mr. Shakes to operate a golf cart for clients (NO! Wait till he's having a seizure, THEN let him operate it)
