how did dr. y. respond when you asked him to be present for the pt being tubed?
(they both sound rather inexperienced)
I just hate baby sitting doctors. Spoon feeding them is just as bad. Never see that on TV.
That's why I love ER where you can watch Real Doctors in action:chuckle
who gave you the order for the bolus?
(don't these guys confer w/ea other?)
a 2nd/3rd yr resident should know better...
and trust the experienced icu nurses who know what they're doing.
i'm disappointed at his attitude, but not surprised.
sometimes it takes one's entire career to grow that learning curve.
and sometimes, one never learns.
you know the types, and not just doctors either.
Residents are such cute little things. Just think they will be real doctors when they finally grow up. With my strong personality I had difficulty working in a teaching hospital with all those little med students and interns and residents getting in my way. Now those doing their fellowships were tolerable. Because by then they had learned that a good nurse was very valuable to them and their patient. That is why I have found my happiness in other hospitals.

Residents are such cute little things.
I think the problem has a lot to do with the type of person going into medicine these days. They tend to be bright, highly motivated, entitled, and indeed somewhat self-centered. They have virtually no social skills whatsoever. When things dont go their way they become very agitated and tend to blame others rather than take responsibility. While some are certainly pleasant, I cannot imagine having a engaging conversation over a beer with many of them. This is a sad.
The experienced nurses in my neck of woods seem enjoy humiliating the bright young things for sport. This is endlessly amusing and a great pleasure to see but I fear it does them little good. Not only are they arrogant, but they are so sensitive. Poor dears!
