Fucking loved it
[sensitive people - better stop reading this journal]
As some of you know, I'm a doc (an intern), and I work in a hospital. This time I had a wonderful month spent on ER
This was Real Medicine, not some boring sitting and reading magazines in the operating theater during anaesthesiology internship (or rather internSHIT).
Finally I learned something.
I learned how to stitch wounds. How to do ultrasonography of the abdomen. How to deal with broken bones
I learned how to make medical decisions and that my decisions matter (the main doctor trusted me and I did a lot of work of my own). How not to throw up when a drunk, dirty homeless person with a rotten leg full of maggots shows in the ER and he needs to be cleaned and the wound tended...
I learned things that are important in everyday life too - how to be strong and how to deal with drunk people. I'm tougher now. You have to be tough to endure agressive drunk/drugged people. Tied to a bed and threatening to rape you. Calling you a bitch or talking how sexy you are (I fucking hate it). At first I was nice "oh mister X, please don't move, let me help you" and it wasn't working with some people - now I know you have to tell them "shut the fuck up and be still. SHUT UP I SAID!". Works like magic. There are also agressive people who untie themselves and run away from the ER. And there is no security... Just two doctors, sometimes interns like me, paramedics (I love them, they have always amazing stories to tell <3) and nurses... I kept a pepper gas spray in my pocket all the time
I was lucky I didn't have to use it
And my hospital is in the worst part of Cracow - when the night comes, zombies go out... Seriously
Crime is high here.
And now I will have one month of psychiatry.
Guess where... On a detox ward... Alcohol withdrawal syndrome etc. I don't know what to expect there xD But I know it can't be worse than the ER - and I know I will survive.
Oh, and I have one thing I'd like to ask you. Please learn how to CPR.
Pretty pretty please <3 I will write a journal about this soon... I've seen so many people who could be saved and are now six feet under because no one knew how to CPR or was too scared to do this...
I'll write about common myths and some stuff that can help
Everything from life and from the stories of paramedic friends.
Have a safe Christmas! Hugs for all of you
