I work at a busy Level I trauma center with some renowned attending physicians. I stumble across their names when I read citation lists and textbook contributor lists.
The other day, the attending came out of a room and said, "The patient just had diarrhea all over the gurney. I directed her to the bathroom but you need to get a commode in there." I was just in the middle of a med pass and said, "I'll be right there."
I grabbed a commode and walked in just in time to see the attending carrying in some linens. "Oh, get out of here doc... go do some doctor stuff... I got this." She smiled and said, "No, I'm not busy right now" and finished making the bed which she'd already cleaned.
I was flabbergasted... and humbled by her act of service toward the patient and toward me. I already respected the lady for her doctoring but was just blown away at her attitude of service and belief that no task is beneath her.
