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!

Me to nurse: I ordered a colonoscopy on this guy 3 weeks ago, and he hasn’t had it scheduled yet. He’s having unintentional weight loss, so we really need to get an appointment for soon

Nurse CP, looking up referral. Sees the name of another nurse who is notorious around the office for not doing her work:That’s your problem right there. That right there.

Me: So what do we need to do?

CP, shaking head: Plead the blood of Jesus, gurl. Just plead the blood. Pray for my weary soul
