The Good Docs
So I realize that I talk a lot about Dr Rock and Dr Tox... whom I don't think highly of. There are so many docs that I work with that are SO great. Dr T, one of the neurosurgeons... is one of the most caring and empathetic people I have met. (I have found this is true about almost all neurosurgeons). Dr B is one of the biggest nursing advocates I have ever met. He is a bit of a trouble maker though. I think thats why we get along so well. One night he tied a noose around his neck on trauma bed 1 and pretended to hang himself. Then he told me to get the interns and tell them there was a code in the trauma room!! I still have pictures of that somewhere! Dr Dave and I would play on the roof as we waited for the helicopter to come in.
All of these folks are a lot of fun to work with, but I have a lot of faith in them as practitioners as well. They give me confidence about the care we provide (unlike some others) Am I bitter sometimes, of course. There are nights where I want to go flip burgers. But there are also nights where I feel like a rock star. Those nights usually make all the bad ones all worth it. I could be doing a million other things right now, but there is a reason why I'm here. Plus I have great stories. Back to work tonight. We will see what comes my way!
Enemas don't come in flavors for a reason. Don't drink 'em!
