To dream of a patient represents you or someone else that is focused on fixing or dealing with a problem. It may also reflect a healing process you are experiencing. Feeling too weak to deal with serious problems. Difficulty recovering emotionally from a traumatic or hurtful experience.
Negatively, dreaming about a patient may reflect feelings of thinking of yourself as victim. An area of your life that is in a perpetual state of fixing or recovery with no real visible progress.
