I got confused reading the exam instructions on the first exam I've taken, last Wednesday, and forgot what catagory I was supposed to answer on, then just picked a question I thought I could do well on and wrote about five pages worth of an essay and got onto the next book before I realised it.

Posted:So in spite of being a doctor, I'm still a trainee and I'm not licensed yet. So every patient I see has to be "staffed" with an attending physician. Because officially, I don't provide care or make decisions, even though I do in reality. So I go and present the patient to the attending and then s/he'll go see the patient, bless my work (or change it) and then the patient can go.

So a kid came in to have sutures removed. I took a med student with me, had the med student cut out the sutures, and patted the kid on the head, gave him some discharge instructions and sent him home...

And then realized that I hadn't staffed him with my attending. eek

So here's me going "Um...Dr. Cunningham? I just did a bad thing..."

Basically I got a "Don't ever do that again." To which I was like, "Yeah...I'm not planning on it...just like I wasn't planning on doing it in the first place."

Still, that's called "Practicing medicine without a license."

Posted:i know how u feel - im a nurse but only qualified at xmas but then due to bad staffing i've been in that situation a few times.
its not good, but even if you're new, if you know what you're doing and you know you know and can defend what you did if you had to, youll be ok. just dot get into a habit of it!

Posted:chickpea, there's no defense.

Only "It was an accident."

I mean, I think she figured that ranting and raving at me when I knew what I had done was wrong and when I *immediately* went to her and told her I'd done probably wouldn't accomplish anything. Because 1) I knew why it was wrong 2) I didn't do it on purpose 3) I felt bad about having done it.

Posted:i suppose it much worse for docs than nurses. at our place most of the docs ask the nurses what to do because the nurses have been there for 10+ years most of them and the doctors usually less than 12 months.But then we never really get newly reistered docs either.
and on that cheery note i have to go work a night shift now....on a saturday night.

Posted:I shouted at a lady at work last Thursday. She was being really rude and snapped at me like I was a 5 year old, so I snapped back. I know I shouldn't have been so harsh though, the hot weather was getting to everyone that day making everything more intense. Now I have to sit next to her another 2 weeks. Plus she's a counsellor, that made me feel extra bad.

Posted:I remembered something I did a while ago.
My Boyfriend works in a mobile phone shop in town, and he wears one of those magnetic name tags.
One day it went missing and we forgot about it so he ordered a new one.

A few months later, our cooker was making a funny smell- we thought it must be chicken fat from a roast, so I decided to clean the oven.
And guess what I found? yup, a deformed piece of plastic and metal at the bottom of the oven. ubbloco
How the hell did it get there? Well this mistery was solved the following weekend.

The Boyfriend leaves his badge on the pine end of the kitchen counter next to the phone every evening after coming home. I was preparing to cook oven chips one evening.

I brought the oven tray over to the chest freezer and put it on the corner of the counter by the phone so i could use both hands and scoop up the frozen chips. Closed the freezer, picked up the tray and went back to the oven and began to slide the chips in, when something clattered onto the floor of the oven.

Thats right, his new badge had hitched a ride on the tray too.

Mistery solved - Stupidity discovered. redface

Lesson learned? Tidy up the counter first.

Both badges have been in the washing machine dozens of time too haha
