"An Unna's boot can be used to treat uninfected, non-necrotic leg and foot ulcers," read page 182 of the textbook propped up on the lap of the woman seated to Renner's right.

According to Renner, page 182 features a photo of a hand placing a small boot on a smiling elderly woman that was "pretty funny."
