From Column of MEDILENS with Dr. Arisha
THINGS DOCTORS SHOULD KEEP IN MIND.
Recently, I was posted in Neurosurgery Rotation.
The consultant was way too rude to patients, interns, and the staff.
His behavior, in my opinion, was not justified in any way.
People often say it’s because of the amount of workload we doctors experience or due to the age, heat, etc.,
but harsh behavior toward the helpless and needy is incorrect.
I generally give advice to med students, but here is a thing for doctors.
This may be a normal day at work for you, but it’s a big day in your patient’s life.
The look on your face and the tone of your voice can change your entire view of the world.
Remember, they are not usually this scared or needy.
They are here because they trust you, so help them stay confident.
Your patients can hear your conversation.
They are also not used to being naked around strangers, so please keep that in mind.
They may only be here for four days, but they’ll remember you for the rest of your life.
Your patient needs your patience.
