"A patient's history is as important as their symptoms. It's what helps us decide if heart burn's a heart attack... if a headache's a tumor. Sometimes patients will try to re-write their own histories. They'll claim they don't smoke, or forget to mention certain drugs... which in surgery can be the kiss of death. We can ignore it all we want, but our history eventually always comes back to haunt us."
Yup, like HOUSE MD said, ppl lie, patients lie - all the time. For us, med student, when the patient lies to us, it does cost a lot of trouble for us. We are just learning, and of course, as a student, it's very hard to tell either the patient is telling the truth, or they are hiding the truth, or they are making up another story... and as docs and med students, we have to deal with that everyday... hahahhaha.. suck huh... i'm not saying that everyone lies to each other... but, some of us did... i guess this is how the world keep moving... Now that i'm bz in the medical ward, i have to deal with diff type of patients everyday. For those who dont know much about warding system.... medical ward is for patient with sakit2 organ2 dalaman la... senang nak citer, mcm mild heart disease, sakit perut, sakit buah pinggang, anemia... bla bla bla... penyakit2 yang biasanya hanya dirawat dgn memakan ubat sahaja. Kalau memerlukan surgery, kene masuk surgical ward.
