Settle an argument for me.....

You live in a family of 4 adults - 2 of which use inhalers which put them in the high risk group.
You need to take your elderly uncle to the doctors for a blood test - on arrival at your uncles it transpires that a nurse will visit and attendance at the GP surgery isn't required.

What do you do ?

I went B but I don't share a house with vulnerable adults which may skew my choice a bit.

You don’t detail what the risk was, I assume going to transport the uncle was already a risk.

assuming the uncle is capable and attendance was only for transportation, Probably A.

Why would go home put your family at risk? Safest option go home, wash your hands. You could also go as far as putting clothes in wash and have a shower.

It's all a risk. IMO meeting the Nurse was the risk .......and an unnecessary risk......

Clearly A since staying risks transmission of anything the nurse might have to five people as opposed to one.

EDITED: Misread the question..

Yes clearly better to go home you have only had contact with one person (uncle) while staying to meet the nurse is a second opportunity for infection and it would seem in the circumstances unnecessary.

Asthma is a very broad condition. Without listing why an uncle is in a vulnerable group and what the risk is compared to the other two you can't make a decision.

I'm guessing that the stay there is motivated by some understanding/memory/other cognitive problems for your uncle and having a potential impact on treatment.

I don't expect you to list any of the medical details, that's the point, it's unknown. It's also interesting the nurse chose to visit as it would suggest they are pretty vulnerable and it's important to do the tests.

If you're worried about circumstances, please use the personal part of the forum or I hope you are able to talk to others in real life :smile:.

Unable to decide from information given. It depends on whether the uncle needed assistance beyond transport.
