    I’d like to point out to the med student from today that “He did earlier” is not an acceptable response to “Does the patient have a pulse?”.

    A nurse shouted at me for leaving oxygen running, "it doesn't grow on trees" she said. She then got an ironic lesson about photosynthesis.

    I had a rather concerning conversation today:

    Med student: I’ve never seen a dead person before.
    Me: This lady isn’t dead.
    Med student: Oh.

    Medicine is a very bipolar job, swinging between “I can’t believe I get paid for this” and “I don’t get paid enough for this shit”.

    Blame it on the bougie.

    Offer the nurses some heparin. When they ask why tell them that sitting on their ass doing nothing increases the risk of DVT.
    Now run. Fast.
