Wayfaring MD

I am a family medicine resident who likes to highlight the hilarious in medicine as I write about patients, medical school, residency, medical missions, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

HIPAA is for reals, folks. All of my "patient stories" have been changed to protect patient privacy. I will change any or all identifiers, including age, location, race/ethnicity, sex, medical history, and quotes. Also, I am an anonymous internet person. Why should you trust an anonymous internet person to give you medical advice? Don't ask me, ask your doctor!

  • Attending: Go ahead and put in a nursing order to wean that baby off IV fluids.
  • Me (still learning the computer ordering system): Ok, how do I do that exactly?
  • Attending: You literally type "nursing order: wean off IV fluids" and click Enter.
  • Me: my bad.
