You know what's really annoying? Patients' families. Especially when the whole extended family is there. This I do not have a problem with. I have a problem with me talking to the patient and asking them questions and getting rude, sarcastic remarks from his or her family. It's so annoying. Please don't do this if you find yourself in a hospital, God forbid. Unless they're being a jerk to you.
I understand it gets very frustrating when you or your loved one has a certain condition that makes all the med students crowd around and stuff. That I can understand. What I can't understand is why people would get annoyed at the crowd of med students when they know that the hospital is a teaching hospital. Seriously, if you want privacy, pay for the private room. Or go to a different hospital.
I'm a med student. I need to see cases. That's the only way I will learn. Books aren't enough. If the students weren't allowed to look at patients then how are we going to get experience and take care of people in the future. We are your future doctors. Be nice.
I don't have much to say. This is an update for Controlled Chaos. I lover her to death so maybe I'll update more instead of use my breaks on fb.
ps- I'd appreciate all your prayers. One that I pass first attempt on my final final final exams as a med student. Two that my health improves. it's been deteriorating as soon as I stepped on Indian ground this past June and for some reason it's just getting worse and worse. Or so I feel. I'm a bit of a drama queen but I honestly have never been getting sick so often. Prayers are always appreciated. :)
