Infirmary Sign-Ups 1940
how to save the world… one scraped knee at a time


Entering the cabin flying its red flag and white cross, it’s roomier than it might look from the outside. It’s snowing out, wet and heavy, but a mat at the door to wipe your wellies ought to allay any guilt about coming inside. However, besides the things one might expect in a camp infirmary (rows of beds, bandages, disinfectant), the Infirmary was otherwise empty. Weren’t there supposed to be sign-ups today?

At the back of the room however, around one of the beds a curtain is drawn, behind which two shadows are discernable. At the sound of the door, the one standing greets entering campers with, “Make sure the door’s closed!”

Of course, the cabin can’t stay as cozy as it is if the doors are left open all the time!

“If you’re a patient, and it’s not dire, hang on a tick while I finish up these stitches.”

From behind the curtain, a stifled whine. Someone was already having a bad day.

“If you’re here to sign-up for the Infirmary as an assistant, there’s a form at the back, by the potion station. When you’re finished you can fold it and leave it in the tray to the right.”

On one of the counters at the back, as directed, there is a stack of sign-up forms. Next to them is a plate of chocolate-- dark, milk, and white. They are both guarded by one rather large and wart-covered toad. Though uninterested in the chocolate, it does tend to stare, and a little rudely to boot! Above the impertinent thing and affixed to the cabinet is a sign that reads merely ‘Do Not Milk The Toad.’

It seems like the attendant on duty is a bit busy. There’s still the sound of quibbling from behind the curtain and the occasional whimper. Best just complete the form and head out-- maybe you can get to know your advisers a little later!


Role-play Opportunity written by Leander Laskos

OOC:
Welcome to the Infirmary. Your Chief Infirmary Assistants for the summer are Leander Laskos, Kathleen Ellwood-Luxe, and Elizabeth Woods-Taylor, who will supervise your training in first aid and patient care. Prospective healers will be developing skills in:

  • Triage
  • Patient comfort (making beds, treating sniffles, changing bandages)
  • Treatment of minor injuries (from dueling, Quidditch, and/or hiking accidents)
  • Simple potion brewing and apothecary skills
  • Folding sheets and re-winding bandages

And remember, only YOU can prevent complications from minor cuts, poison oak outbreaks and bruising!

Feel free to write out your sign-up 'In Character', or just copy/post the code below with your answers to enlist.

If you choose to RP sign-ups, feel free to grab a bit of chocolate, but please don’t be greedy!

Also, I wouldn’t touch the frog if I were you.

Joy pushed open the door, glancing inside the infirmary. It looked like someone was there already, hurt. She pursed her lips and saw the chocolate. Her eyes lit up, and she nearly ran across the whole room.

Right then, she didn't care if she wasn't allowed. It was Swinter* anyways. She took a bar of white chocolate and grabbed a form. She read it over, took the quill, and filled it out.

She folded it and left it in the tray on the right. She tentatively patted the toad and left, feeling glad that she had finally gotten involved in something. She certainly wasn't going to stick around right now though.

It was shortly after the first Quidditch match that Zoey found herself in the infirmary. Again. Although this time it wasn't for Quidditch injuries, nor from falling out of a tree, or falling through the ice.

Well, actually if she really thought about, it could be interpreted that she was there because of those things. Zoey had been to the infirmary a few times on the receiving end of treatment. And, well, she already knew where a lot of the supplies were kept so the girl figured volunteering would help her familiarize with where things were and maybe even how to heal herself from future accidents. In Zoey's world they were inevitable, after all, and she hated relying on someone else to fix her. She hated relying on someone else for anything, so if she could eventually learn to do it herself, she would.

And so she ended up here, staring in front of the sign up sheet with her nose scrunched in disgust at the chocolate that was sitting by the sign up sheets. She wondered how long that had been sitting there. Shouldn't health care workers be wary of that?

She glanced around quickly, but no one else was really around nor seemed to care. Giving a small shrug she put her quill to the parchment and wrote out her submission.

Folding it once in half she placed her sheet in the tray, turned on her heel and walked out.
