We had some good stories yesterday, but most of them were more "oh shit" stories. Like you were doing your job and then realized that "oh shit" you made some horrible mistake.
I don't think that's shameful though. I mean, to err is human, right?
I'm not sure whether this is a particularly saintly group or people are just scared, even though this is entirely anonymous. But I used to see on a regular basis residents doing things that I thought were pretty shameful.
One thing that I saw residents do a lot in residency was handle things on homecall from home that should have been handled by coming in to evaluate the patient. And I worked with several residents who used to lie about having seen a patient if they were short for time. I worked with a med student who was told to go out and rescrub, and he was so pissed off that he rescrubbed with the sponge he'd thrown in the garbage, then went back in.
That's the kind of shameful stuff I'm talking about. But nobody here would do anything like that, huh?
