Posted by Civilian John-King McKenzie (Bartender) in Sickbay - John-King McKenzie Check Up
As he walked to sickbay, the itching in his left hand got considerably worse, he tried to resist the urge to scratch it, but it was almost unbearable.
John-King walked through the doors of sickbay slowly, a lot of hard memories in places like this for him over the years - the regular visits to get the medication he needed for the left hand, then the full physical following his adventures in the mirror universe, then the constant review of his suitability for active service in the Federation. Then, when he eventually resigned his commission, his health was maintained by a private doctor, and so this was the first time he stepped inside a Federation sickbay in quite some time.
He saw a young Medical Officer and went to her, she was a Bajoran, a crewman.
“Nurse,” he said, “I’m John-King McKenzie, JK for short. I need my next round of medicatoin.”
Taw Yllek, the Nurse to which John-King spoke, looked up from her task when he addressed her, motioning to a biobed, she said, “please get up there. Mr McKenzie, I’m Taw Yllek one of the nurses.” She looked at her padd and said, “ok, this says that your left hand interferes with technology if it gets too close and you get both a shot and some medication. Dr Rajesh prescibed your current medication to you, and this tells me you should have been here last week. You can’t afford to get behind on this, Mr McKenzie, has anything on board been impacted negatively by your left hand over the past week?”
