Great Doctor Ling Ran Chapter 825
Early in the morning, Captain Chu opened his eyes to see a dog standing before him.
The dog had bright eyes and shiny white teeth.
"Who brushed my dog's teeth?" Captain Chu shouted angrily as he sat up straight, his arms supporting him. He shifted his knees. When he found that it no longer hurt as much as before, he could not help but laugh.
"My son did it," Old Xu came over in a wheelchair, he had an amiable-looking face, "Your dog was sitting so still with my son as he brushed its teeth. My son is so gifted, whew"
When Captain Chu saw that Old Xu was healthy, he happily retorted. "What's the use of being gifted in dealing with dogs? Why would he brush the dog's teeth? It's not like he's going to kiss it."
"It's a semi-retired dog, it should be happy to have someone brush its teeth," Old Xu retorted with great confidence.
Captain Chu snorted. "Why isn't your son getting ready for school yet?"
"He's getting ready to go to Yun Hua High School." Old Xu pursed his lip. "His mother came around with her thoughts. What's the use of studying so hard? Nothing will come out of it in the end. We talked it over, and we found that we could not take it anymore. We'll let him be a policeman in the future."
Captain Chu was surprised. "Didn't you forbid him to be a policeman?"
"We don't have a lot of relatives and friends left in both our families. We're alone in the world. If he becomes a policeman, he'll have someone to take care of him." Old Xu nodded to Captain Chu and said with a smile, "This time, my wife felt the warmth of our police team."
Captain Chu was a little smug. He happily received the compliment, turned his head around, and whispered, "Speaking of which, I promised to send some more people with injured knees to Doctor Ling. Take a seat here, let's figure out something together"
"Figure out what?"
"There's a recovery period for surgeries, you know? We can't send those people here all in one go. It would delay our day-to-day work. So we must have a reasonable allocation of who comes first, who comes later, and who needs to take a long rest, right?"
Old Xu nodded slowly.
Captain Chu whispered, "This stays between us. It would only put all sorts of thoughts in the minds of people. We'll go by these three principles when we allocate the members here. First, we'll use the health of the members as the basic rule for allocation. The second rule will be that we'll allocate them based on the work within the police force. The third one is to make it as convenient as possible for the members. Ignore any other requests. I would suggest listing out the names of those who need surgeries"
Old Xu then took a pen and paper. Both of them sat in front of the hospital bed as they listed down the names of the people who had their knees injured before.
As soon as the list was completed, Old Xu sighed. "So many people in our team were injured."
Captain Chu also sighed and adjusted his seating posture.
The names of their team members and their titles were listed on the list, and behind them were either stars, crosses, or curved lines readjusting their positions on the list.
Old Chu looked at the list and sighed subconsciously. "Captain Chu, doesn't it look like we're in human trafficking right now?"
Captain Chu looked at the white paper and said without raising his head, "Even if this is really human trafficking, they still have to go. By the way, how are you recovering?"
"It's pretty good. What about you?"
"Very good. Doctor Ling is really skilled when it comes to surgery. Hey, let's take advantage of this opportunity to let Old Wang and the other old members in our team go have their surgery. We can't be waiting for them to get any older before they get their surgery. By then, their bodies will be riddled with injuries and illnesses.We're already in this era, and now, we rely on our brains to catch thieves. We need to take good care of our bodies" Captain Chu lamented as he thought of his seniors.
During consultation day, Captain Chu led several members straight to Ling Ran's consultation office.
Zuo Cidian gave them the extra slots at the door, and said, "Doctor Ling only consults ten people every day. So far, he has consulted five to six people. Please wait for a little while. You're now slotted at the front of the queue."
"Thank you very much," Captain Chu leaned on his crutches as he voiced his gratitude. He then told the others, "You all must have met Doctor Zuo before. He helped me a lot when I was hospitalized."
The team members who were led by Captain Chu to see the doctor were not very happy, but they were still polite to the doctor.
"Thank you, Doctor Zou."
"If we work together with other departments in hunting down punters and we catch you, I will definitely let you go."
"If you're caught in illegal gambling, just call out my name."
"If you got into fights, call out my name."
"If you got into accidents, call out my name."
Even though they were mostly involved in rearing dogs, they knew quite a lot of people. All of them expressed their gratitude to Doctor Zuo.
Zuo Cidian accepted them with a smile and then sent them to take a seat in the corridor.
The people waited in boredom, but as they waited, they chatted or walked around, and they were not as bored as they thought they would be.
After a while, a man who looked like a shopkeeper for a snack counter came back with a member of the police force.
"Captain Chu." The team member who came back was a tiny man. He had short legs, thick buttocks, was thin and lean, like a Corgi who only ate lean meat.
Captain Chu frowned as he looked over. "What's going on?"
"This brother has heard that we're slotted at the front. He wants to buy our numbers." Corgi Man winked and sent the team a signal they were familiar with. 'Jack up the prize.'
Captain Chu looked at the man and asked, "What do you mean?"
"I'm not from here, and I don't have a number. I just want to know if I can get one number from your group. It would be even better if you can give us two."
"We also came to see the doctor," Captain Chu said.
"We are all patients." The businessman revealed a dejected smile. Then, he drew the figure of an eight in the air and said, "There's so many of you, I'm sure one of you can do me a favor and give me a number."
"What are you trying to say?" Captain Chu refused to admit that he understood what the businessman said, and he just let him continue speaking.
The businessman smiled. "800 RMB. Two for 1,800."
"One number for 800 RMB?" Those who were talking incessantly just now became dumbfounded.
As soon as the businessman saw their expressions, he knew what was going on. He smiled and said, "You're queued right in front of the line, right? 800 RMB is the market price. I will not scam you. It has been decided, then. If you look it up the on Doctors. Here, you'll find that that's the price for numbers at the front."
"We won't sell them." Once Captain Chu got a clear statement, his expression darkened.
The businessman frowned, but the frown disappeared and smiled before he said, "Brother, you don't have to be like that. 800 RMB is a lot. How about one for 900 RMB and two for 2,000 RMB?"
Captain Chu took out his ID card and swung it a little without saying anything.
The businessman stood still, laughed bashfully before obediently turning around and left.
"Did you see that? You usually won't be able to get to see a doctor whose consultation numbers cost 1,000 RMB." Captain Chu took the opportunity to educate his team members.
Everyone clicked their tongues as they continued saying strange things, but none of them mentioned about going back anymore.
After a while, Ling Ran consulted the first ten patients. Captain Chu and his team swarmed in and entered Ling Ran's office.
Ling Ran took a look and asked, "Who's going first?"
A few people looked at each other and pushed Corgi Man to the front.
"You want knee arthroscopy?" Ling Ran remembered Captain Chu's promise. He looked at the patient's scan and immediately formed his impression.
Corgi Man nodded hesitantly.
"Go and get a scan. If there aren't any changes to your condition, you can have your surgery during the afternoon. Next." Ling Ran handed over the task of writing the prescription and the authorization form for the related scans to the houseman and looked at the people behind Corgi Man.
Corgi Man hesitated again. "This afternoon? So soon?"
"It can also be scheduled next week. There is no need to hurry for elective surgeries."
"Do it this afternoon," Captain Chu glanced at Corgi Man. "There will be others queueing up for surgery for next week."
