    So I'm wondering how many of you work with a Doctor that really practice like the TV counterpart Dr. House? I mean I sure the writers are getting these ideas from some Rebel Doc out there...right?

    Oh, if someone works with a real Dr House please mention the city and state! I would love to work with a guy like this, we could bicker and argue all day long and I wouldn't get fired (hopefully). LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!

    Wxcwpt he doesn't use nurses for ANYTHING except poop duty. His docs hang IV bags, give shots, insert IVs. Never seen anything like it.

    Ha ha!

    You forgot the occasional breaking and entering into a patients house

    A real life Dr House would practice medicine in a real life hospital for about half a day. He'd get awful survey scores. The nurses would write him up. Management would reprimand him, and some crazy pt would send him to the great beyond. But wouldn't it be fun to watch the fireworks.

    I have never seen it form one Dr. alone but a combination of many situations sure. I was in another room when a Dr., asked the interpreter as the patient did not speak english, anyway he very loudly said "does he understand dead?" I know the situation and in my opinion it was called for, but I was 3 rooms down the hall after all. If this was not such a public forum I could tell of many other times when a hospital protocol was flexed a bit. But, the only time I ever saw a Dr. draw blood or start an IV I was teaching them in a classroom. And to know how to run every piece of equipment in a hospital is impossible, but I do like the show.

    I love it when his docs do brain surgery, cardiac caths, run the CT scanner, etc.

    Chase started out as a pediatrician and now does brain surgery and open heart surgery...amazing. I guess Australian doctors know more than US doctors.

    EXACTLY.

    I have learned that, as a medical professional, I know way too much to watch these shows. I spend all my time yelling at the television about how they could NEVER REALLY DO THAT.
