New Posting, New Worldview..
Assalamualaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh..
Well, well.. Almost a month in a new posting, Medical.. baru sekarang boleh nak update.. Memang agak busy sebab every weekend pon kena on-call.. mentang2 le saye baru kan, so diorang taruk saye on-call every weekend... 7 on-calls per month, for this month le..tapi takpelah, good exposure and experience for me..
So far, so good.. I haven't cry yet in this posting, like I did in O&G (recall : I cried the last day of tagging.. and guess who was the person that I called, just to listen to my sobs...??). But I do agree that being in Medical is so busy, and I hardly find my own time to take a break for lunch.. So, just kumpul all the hunger and thirst till evening, then makan skaligus (breakfast, lunch and dinner).. huhuhu.. But the working environment is so nice.. I'm a little bit lucky to be in the ward that is so welcoming.. all the staff nurses are kind and helpful.. MO and registrar are kinda cool.. and I've got this opportunity to learn a lot, since they discussing cases and academic matters quite often, and make us involve in it..
On-calls, quite okay.. 1st day, 10 patients came in , non-stop from 6pm to 4am.. but I still have time to have a little nap from 4.30am to 6.30am.. it's enough, I would say.. 2nd on-call, only 8 patients.. mostly were stable and it was on the weekend.. so, kind of relaxing.. 3rd on-call, only 1 patient.. hahahahaha! She came in at 9pm and I finished all the clerking, blood-taking and presenting to my MO at about 11pm.. then, I doozed off in the prayer room until 5.30am.. lalalala... next on-call, this coming Sunday.. hope not so bad le..
Next point, regarding procedures.. I am so glad that during my med-school time, we were forced by our lecturers to do a lot of procedures.. by the time we start our houseman, at least we know what to do, and it saves a lot of our time.. so, to all medical students out there, please do A LOT of venepunctures, branula and ABG...these are the basic things that we should master (or at least tried 10 times before start working).. or else, trouble man... hehehe.. before starting this posting, I am so worried because my branula is so so bad.. in 10 trials, 5 would fail.. argh.. but now, with a lot of practice and guidance with the correct technique, I managed to do it.. bangga seh!
Okaylah people, that's all about my job now.. just pray for me, so that I could survive in this posting successfully... May Allah give me strength and courage to overcome all the hassle and hardship.. Ameen..
Take care, people...
