As a resident, you're sometimes forced to call consults that you don't think are necessary. I mean, your attending is sort of your boss, so if they tell you to call a stat GI consult on a patient who obviously has hemorrhoids, what can you do?
This is the most embarrassing consult I was ever forced to call:
I had a patient during residency who was wearing a condom catheter for incontinence. He had a rash on his penis that I thought was very obviously a contact dermatitis from wearing basically a condom all day. However, my attending looked at the rash and thought it was kind of flaky. So he forced me to call dermatology and ask if the patient might have psoriasis (localized to his penis).
I was pretty embarrassed having to call derm and ask if this penis rash was psoriasis. I wanted to ask them, "Is this the stupidest consult you've ever received?"
