Autopsy: Get Your Front Row Seats!

I was a second courser back then when I took up nursing. I didn't take any special shortened course or curriculum, so I was mixed with first coursers and some other second coursers. Why was I the smartest? I was the only second courser who was also a former medicine student. I already had most of the foundation of health care with some clinical exposure in all departments minus the skills of a nurse. Of course it wasn't hard for me to stand out, modesty aside. Standing out was just the... Read More →


Drool Nurse & the Lesson He learned

I'm just an average student when it comes to the theoretical part, but I rock in the actual clinical application. I prefer going to and fro rather than just sitting down doing paperwork. I also see to it that I finish what I start, even if it means working a little beyond my shift. On my first day in the ward, a post-op colorectal CA patient who developed a nosocomial infection was assigned to me. Aside from expensive chemotherapy drugs, she was on expensive antibiotics as well.... Read More →


Misadventure in The Hospital of Infectious Diseases

Warning: Contains events not suitable for those with a brainstem vomition center that's easily excitable (whatever). Misadventure in The Hospital of Infectious Diseases. If I remember correctly, this government-owned charity institution I was in had more than 10 wards distributed in 3 buildings. A gamut of tropical & other infectious disease cases can be found here with pulmonary tuberculosis giving the most admissions. Because of this, the tuberculosis ward had a separate... Read More →


Misadventure in the Psychiatric Disease Department

Warning: Contains events not suitable for those with a brainstem vomition center that’s easily excitable (whatever). Misadventure in the Psychiatric Disease Department. Being the neophyte, I really have to expect having to be the one who’d do the most odd of jobs. First day training in the psych ward, I found myself in the institution’s lab in charge of receiving the specimens and recording them in a logbook. Yup…I got to be the lucky one to have the opportunity to appreciate first (sic)... Read More →


Misadventure in a Maternity Hospital

Warning: Contains events not suitable for those with a brainstem vomition center that’s easily excitable (whatever). Misadventure in a Maternity Hospital. There is probably no maternity hospital that is as busy as the one I went to during training. It’s jam-packed with patients and it’s like a newborn factory. Anybody who would want to have exposure to maternal and newborn care, this institution won’t disappoint you. It is a government owned charity maternity hospital with a 200+ bed... Read More →


Misadventures in Nursing

Warning: Contains events not suitable for those with a brainstem vomition center that's easily excitable (whatever). :p Heh heh...I never knew I'd have the chance to share the funny experiences I had during my training days this way. I usually only have my family and friends to amuse. Now, I have a larger audience and possibly even get a prize to boot. The readers can thank me later (or give this article a high rating) for giving them the much needed dose of humor... Read More →
