Altered sensorium

Today was a bad day la I guess.

Went to the female medical ward early in the morning before the ward round starts.As usual, went to the nurses counter.The usual question came out ,"A'kum dan selamat pagi.Staff nurse, ada brape patient baru admit ke ward petang semalam?" I was a bit unlucky becoz the Sister(Ketua Jururawat) was moody.'Staff nurse, buat ape u layan sgt medical student ni?Jgn layan sgt.Kalau kite layan kerja kita takkan siap.U medical student dh buat orientasi kan?Haa tak faham lagi ka?'
I swear to God that I almost take the BP set and throw at her fat face.Wasnt she listening?My question was simple.'How many new patients admitted to the ward yesterday?'I need to know becoz I have to freakin go and clerk and do physical examination to those new patients.Preparing b4 the ward rounds becoz the Specialist would surely to either ask us to present the case or give the case summary to them.It's not that I am asking that staff nurse to bring me and show me every single new patients one by one!I'm sure that big fat old hippopotamus with that st*pid looking white hat sticking on her freakin hair has sensorineural deafness.Pardon me.Yes,I was pissed.I admit and rela dimarahi if I've done something wrong.But I got irritated if I was freely being lectured for some unknown,unjustified reasons.I dont know.Some nurses and sisters are downright cocky to the core.

At a different note...

Multiple sclerosis,Lung ca with secondary metastases to the brain as well as iatrogenic Cushing's secondary to exogenous steroid-are some of the new cases admitted to the ward yesterday.

PS: Currently doing case write up( 2 long cases and 2 short cases to be submitted tomorrow).Another sleepless night...
