In the morning: Started off getting to the consult by bus. I love going on the bus, you tend to see different people doing AND getting to different places. -Nothing out of the ordinary ont the bus this fine Sunday-
Once at the consult, I started my duty by checking if anything needs cleaning, I was told on my early years in medical school that it is important to keep your consult neat.
After fixing the exploration bed and cleaning my desk I proceed to check my equipment to see if everything has batteries and works fine.
Once finished I was interrupted by a few patients -since its sunday i onky get around 12 or so throughout the day-. I’ve only been here for around 10 days, and seen 277 patients. Different ages and with different illnesses. Out of those 277 patients I’ve given around 77 injections consisting in antibiotics and painkillers. So i must say I am glad i learned how yo give injection in my internship.
The toughest injection i had to do occurred at 1:33pm a tiny patient of 1 year of age, had to have an injection of penicillin of 400,000U …. – yeah… poor baby- i tried my best to do it fast but gently, a good technic is to have the mother rest the child on her lap facing down on their tummy and bending their leg in an L position, this helps the muscle relax a bit so you can quickly inject the child.
So what will I do if i dont have any patiens… well either read or write more blog posts about random things. Kthxbye.:mrgreen:🏥
