“So how does it feel to be oncall with 4 handsome guys last night?”
- how proper hydration, power and pain relief is important in a primigravida to avoid doing unnecessary Caesarean due to poor progress in labour
- different types of CTG abnormalities.
- what to do when you have a labial hematoma ( suck it out and repair the tear )
- how to identify the lower segment (finally.. )
On a non medical side,
- learning to filter your information and ‘advice’ from fellow colleagues.
- knowing how much better it feels to not committing the mistakes yourself
- to not procrastinate (malangnya, nasi sudah jadi separuh bubur)
- to always introduce myself to the patient as a doctor CLEARLY (gaya sondol nametag ke muka)
Most importantly I managed to give a more effective fundal aid this time during Caesarean section. Phew!
Speaking of the last point (introducing oneself), I couldnt stress this any further especially when patients start to call you ‘misi’. Not that I gila status and demands a recognition or anything. its just that some patients tend to react to you differently when you’re a doc/nurse.
On a normal occasion, I dont really mind being called ‘adik’ or ‘misi’ but when Im on-call + freakingly lethargic + faced with blardy rude patient … I just couldnt tolerate any nonsense. Like when patient ORDER you to kutip their baju from the lantai, mengerang mcm nak mampus bila aku masuk bilik walhal when there’s nobody around, relax je tgk TV. Pliss ok.. no pseudopain whatsoever.. Or the time when they would say, ‘Misi.. please call the doctor’. Aduh… menyirap darah aku. And then when I ask ‘What do you want?’ while trying to make my nametag VISIBLE, some may still insist on seeing a doc until a ‘goldfish memory’ event takes place and they’re happy with the pain relief gas Im giving them.
