Quote of the Day


Attending: “You’re the only ER resident working this morning, and there’s already 13 in the waiting room, so I want you picking up multiple patients at once, okay?”

Me: “The other attendings wanted us just doing one at a time as -”

Attending: “That’s fine for the pediatricians to do, but you’re and ED doc right?”

Me: “Yeah…”

Attending: (lowing his head, looking all serious). “I said…You’re an ED doc right?”

Me: (meeting his gaze, just as serious). “Damn straight I am”

Attending: (laughing) Good, get to it.

About ER Jedi

I’m a resident doctor in Emergency Medicine and I’ve learned during the past few years that 1) I’ve had some pretty amazing experiences 2) I have a very bad short-term memory. So this blog is just a place for me to write about some of these experiences, from the ER, medical school, the wards and life in general. At least that way I’ll have some idea as to where I’ve been all this time. A scrap-book of sorts, a place to vent, organize some clinical tools and post a few good songs I’ve heard along the way.
