Gave CS in Atlanta center on feb 8th, n made a few mistakes, here r dey
-didnt ask 1 patient to raise her left breast fr auscultation, cz she didnt lower her gown enuff..so i skipped it..
-missed da best 1st diagnosis in 2 cases, but wrote da 5 D/Ds in both, dat fit
-asked a guy wid fatigue if he ever felt "his energy was low" (while applying the SIGECAPS depression mnemonic)..n his answer was "yeah, dats y m here" (wid dat mocking luk on his face)
-asked a guy if he had "rigors" or chills, n he didnt no wat rigors meant :-/ so i appologized n told him dat i shudnt have used dis term as it was a medical term
so guyz, how serious r dese mistakes? for sum1 who has given CS for da 1st time, its nothing short of nightmares every single night :-/ other den dese, i did everything, cant think of any other mistake like handwashing n lack of empathy etc...did em all...
result on april 25th
I think u should just relax, pray hard [ kidding ] ... you seems done everything , so just wait for result . We are not supposed to be perfect but comprehensive & efficient [ quote from kap or FA .. not remember .. now just all cases in my head ]
Why result takes that long , isn't 6 wk only to wait only?
GL to me , us, all
