Gotta love the ones who argue about the minor details while the patient crashes.
I had an attending like that during my sub-i. Fortunately my resident was awesome and warned us about her, and told us not to take it personally.Sigh.
So funny!!!! Thanks for the monday snicker!
Just when I think I am looking forward to being in the hospital again I see one of your cartoons and I decide maybe being stuck with my head in a textbook isn't so bad after all!!Definitely have come across a few Jessica's in the past. Ughhhh. Hilarious as usual Fiz.
~laughs~ I had a resident do that to ME...and I'm just the NURSING student!!! All I wanted was to know if she REALLY wanted me to give the ORAL MEDS she ordered for the dangerously unstable patient.
Ugh! Sometimes I think these types are attracted to medicine (in general) and internal medicine (in particular). This part is still cracking me up though - "Take that, Jessica, you bitch."
Yup, have met those types. They aren't exclusive to medicine/health care either.
Any Cruel Resident Story that I tell about intern year has a 95% chance of being about Jessica. She was my resident twice and basically my archnemesis that year.
nic cartoon i loved it
I once had an chief resident pimp me on a similarly irrelevant point (I was ER rotating through internal medicine) and (in front of a relatively large group) I responded briskly, "Don't know, don't care," and proceeded on with the relevant portion of the presentation. My evaluation wasn't great but I became a hero to the internal medicine interns who witnessed it...
Just came across your website (I'm an intern now) and I ALSO had a nemesis named Jessica! Serious throw-under-the-bus potential in that name, evidently...
