another story

here is another true story that happened to me in my daily life working as a coolie a.k.a doctor at
the government hospital

occay, true fact about me.
young patients loves me... coz we speak the same language...
the untie and grandma age patients likes me coz they want me to be their in law
the pakcik and atok2 age patients enjoy having doctor like me coz i listen to their story

but, not everyone likes me...

.. One fine day at the ward..

a patient was admitted due to end stage renal failure , and he's planned for peritoneal dialysis..
it's an invasive procedure, where doctor poked the abdomen, put a drainage system and clean the abdomen.. it's an alternative to hemodialysis

Apparently this patient is very arrogant...
when he was planned for the procedure, he requested for a senior medical officer to do the procedure on him, and refused on me doing the procedure as he claimed i look too young to be a doctor,
so fine - i was irritated, but i did not care, less work for me.

I told the pakcik, that particular medical officer that he requested wasnt available..
so , i told him to pick someone else..

he saw a chinese doctor in the same ward with me, and asked for the chinese doctor to do the procedure on him

I said "fine " , let just get it over it...

Little that he knew, that chinese doctor just started working , and only done the procedure once before - under my supervision

and... since the patient requested , that chinese doctor , did the procedure on him - unsuccessfully.....

and i had to take over ... eventually..
hehhee...

after the procedure was done... a nurse told that patient that i am a senior doctor in the ward...

before he was discharged , he said he was sorry ....

and yesterday he was admitted again , and we became good friend... :)

the end....
