houseman owh houseman.........
there was only a few of us.
i firstly in charged at the obstetric and gynae department.
a total of 12 houseman in the department
everyday , 4 housemans need to be oncall.
and we must do round every single day during weekend
therefore - we ended up doing oncall on every other day.
not much time for family
not much time for self enterntaiment
purely work 24/7
it was a hard time
it was a drill
the labour room at the GH was like a factory producing babies
everyday , there were at least 50 babies delivered there...
it went up to 100 or 150
yes , kelantanese produce a lot of babies
furthermore - there are only a few private hospitals here
yeah.. bla bla bla..
it was tough and tiring days ..
but it was worth it
it made me a better doctor
practice make perfect
there were so much i needed to learn
and i need to work extra hours to gain the knowledge and experience
complaining about the extra hours
they just want to work as any other goverment officers
go to work at 8 , come back home by 5 pm
what the heck?
dude.... come on..
i heard in some departments
housemen are demanding no oncall for hari raya
and longer break for them to celebrate hari raya with family..
i remember myself working during hari raya..
wearing my baju melayu to the labour room
delivering babies while wearing sampin...
all the mums requested me to "azan" their newborns..
something u wont get to do every day
come on guys,,
once u decided to be a doctor
isnt just about u anymore
the MD or MBBS means..
u have to sacrife our own interest.. to save life
to all new housemen
to all medical students
please.. stop complaining
do ur bloody job
