I ain't usually one to post stuff like this but this...I mean...whoa...dude...never seen that before.
We have a new Doc in our facility, a family practice Doc. I recently found an excuse to sneak down to the ED to BS with some friends as I waited on them to send me a new admit. While I was leaving I saw them start to wheel my admit up to my floor. I walked along side them, just talking away with the pt and the guys with the stretcher. I noticed that the guy at the front of the stretcher was new, real nice though, then I saw his name tag...
Me: Hey Doc I can get this stretcher for ya if you want
Doc: Nah man it's cool, I got it.
That ain't nothin' I realize (although for around here it is), but there is more.
Pt was admitted for C-Diff. Doc was rounding the next day, stuck his head out the door and asked for some washrags and sheets...... Um...ok Doc... Pt had a code brown and the Doc was actually completely willing to assist in cleaning them up (he didn't, the techs came in though).
I'm still in shock. We have some good Docs around here, most of them will sit and BS with you once you get to know them, listen to what you have to say. I have never, in 5 years of employment in a hospital, seen a Doc actually willing to clean a pt... Wow.
Just had to share that. I think the planets must have been in proper alignment or something.
