Well, that's a bit...creepy. If you don't mind me asking... How far DID it go?

Annnnd thank you!!!!

I had to remove every, single, article of clothing. And, they wanted a more detailed medical history than I have ever had to give any doctor. Seriously. I had to have blood drawn even though I had very detailed immunization documentation. I had everything done within the past two years. So I'm wondering what the blood work was for. It just was what I felt invasive. But, I got over it after a couple of days. It was not at all what I expected and it caught me way off guard.

Geez, what kind of physical was this? Mine were all pretty impersonal, even for employment.

I learned that our crustiest, quietest, most senior intensivist (who I hold in the utmost regard as he is an amazing physician) will literally whistle with carefree delight while making rounds in the PICU when the computers system is down for eight hours and he gets to write orders on paper.

Yes. I asked if she reported it. She said yes. I asked her again because I still didn't feel right about it. Again she said yes. I went and looked at the pt because I felt like things weren't happening quick enough so I paged myself and was told that all the med student said was that the Pt was delirious. Yeah she wouldn't open her eyes to sternal rubs and respers were 40-60. Big diff... Lol

Well, the baby might be coming out, since she said the mom was in labor. Not sure if he would want to get any action right after she gave birth.

I bet there's an app for that.
