  1. So, I'm sure we've all been in this situation to some extent at some point in our careers, and I'm curious to find out the best way to go about handling it. Those patients who you just can't tell if they're a male or a female. How do you go about asking? Is there a polite way to do it? Maybe a subtle trick you use; perhaps in how you phrase questions? Or is it all about being blunt? For the sake of eliminating a few of the obvious answers, lets say the patient is in their early twenties, average weight, doesn't have a wallet (and therefore no identification or paperwork), has a unisex name, is wearing bulky winter clothing, and has a voice that keeps you guessing. The balls in your court. And yes, that was a pun, and no, I have no shame.
