KZB on:Hospital Attachment,Hospital Putrajaya
Today I finally deducted that there are more girls with guts to take on the Doctor/Medicine career compared to the Male population..
The girls in the Auditorium of HPTJ is literally taking over the boys, and I'm telling ya, they are all hungry-looking ones too... Ugh but nevertheless, I still survived.. Guess what?? I am the leader again~ not the whole 90 plus candidates, its of my 8-person groupies~~ and I can't say I didn't want to be the leader(yea my funny nature) but it was a real DEAL!!!
Because leaders get lotsa LIVE experiences!!!Its like the first day and I went to almost ALL the departments we were meant to go in these whole week!!!
What is cooler? We get to go the OFF-LIMITS !!! Why off limits? Because you will never be able to access through those doors without the instructor's card~~ Imagine that!!! Fully computerised Hospital~~~ Ideal working spot for future doctors like us who scribbles like SHYYYT and typing would be like super cool!!!!
What are the off limits?? The Premium Suite~ Its like the pent house of condominiums and its like a 5 start hotel suite!!1 They have Guard Rooms(I have no idea what was the purpose), a hall with a sink and microwave oven(imagine they have smoke and the sprinkles start splashing H20 off) with a fridge, and 2 bed rooms/ward for the patients.
So? That is it? NAAAAH!!!!! The bed room have like the best view you have in Putrajaya!!! You can see the WHOLE beautiful view of Putrajya and the splendid bridges!!! And it is all CARPETED!!!! OMFG~~~ I dont even have carpets in my house!!
Yet, it is OFF-LIMITS, meaning only certain personaes are "qualified" to be admitted into these wards, including the officers with postions, HIGHER than the Deputy Minister of Malaysia and all the big shots from overseas~Talk about POSIST(Top 6 ya know what i meant).
That was one of them, another one was the PIT house, or the O&G department~
Why off limits?
Because new borns and mother-to-be/s need optimum services for the labour process and for HPTJ, they practices HUSBAND-FRIENDLY environment so that the fathers can provide moral support when their wives are screaming their lungs out during labour.. And contractions are freaking painful~~~ The worse pain a human can endure is having to push something as big as a puppet off their pussies.. Oops, i mean vagina~ or the womb...
Their rooms were super cool~ They have the rm2k plus lighting devices to focus the rays on the womb and VACUMMS to suck the foetuses' heads out... And all the equipments ranging from clocks and weighing scale were installed~~ Whoa talk about professional~
Yet, the labour cases are considered as a VICase in Malaysian's government which I have no idea why.. But according to Mr Mahmood, our instructor, once there is a death or problem on O&G, it is a HUGE case, or RED case in hospital terms... Looks like Malaysian Health Department do have some perks, as we have the LOWEST death rate in the labour cases.. Impressive, and even Australians send their patients here for our treatment and other countries do wonder how we do it...
For a person who want to do O&G, I can say I'm VERY impressed!
And this was BEFORE we went to the Forensic Department which I can tell you, it is going to be the bottom of my list, because when the faccilitator , AhBang Fizzi were about to open the freezers, I couldn't stop squinting my feet in my shoes...
It is a dead person for Pete's sake!!! And we are suppose to do something to them? Well, that is what doctors do anyway... luckily we can choose to NOT go, or, shorten the length of working period in the Forensic department.. And we have the Corpes Phobia Test thingy, I can tell you I made it through well because the pictures were fine, it is just that I didn't really go "WOw" on the sliced and diced bodies, but I went "Owh... That is going to hurt.."empathy thingy on those pictures...
And everytime Fizzi were about to open a freezer or autopsy room, I will go:" there is something there.. there is something there..." is is like excitement and fear mixed up together but too bad, due to the new Hospital Serdang, most of the bodies were sent there... Adn Im telling you some of the pictures were horrendous~~ It is like slashes and stabs.. I have no idea how these peolpe got involved and how the people who did these to them get on with their lives!!!! They are worse than beasts!!!
So, we were there for 45 minutes for the pictures and some stories of Fizzi picking up pieces of fleshes and bones in the bomb case recently and proceeded to the store, which by the way we skipped it a little because there are only equipment and nothing else...
Okay, after the O&G, we went to the Specialist Clinic to observe how exactly doctors do their jobs.. From giving advices and asking questions of their patients.. and seriously they do KNOW their stuffs as a doctor... Like Encik Mahmood said earlier, the doctors are extremely careful... The "kakak" here she is a malay around 27 years old,was treating a 6 months' old patient.. We kept silence until the lady went out with ther baby, and I broke the silence.. She was real friendly and told us her experiences and DARN!!!
She only went her Housemanship for 1 and 1/2 Years ONLY!!! WE have to do 3 YEARS!!! ARGH!!!! Unfair~!
And time was up and we were busted for talking... But since her patient was off, might as well~ And we were the only pair asked questions~ Owh the pair here saying me and another malay guy from SMSains Seremban and he was from Muar... Talk about "WOW"
After that was lunch.. Yaddaaa~~~
And after that we went to the Traditional Department where they have Massage, Acupuncture and Traditional herbs treatment for Cancer patients... Whoa talk about cool~ And they have the specialist form China and all their herbs are imported from China~ At the back lane they had these Herbal Garden which smells super funny, but wth~
Later on was the Emergency Department, which is next to the On-Call complex... So let me work this whole thing out... The On-call complex get their calls after Telekom filters them through 999 hotline, and then they will get the details and track down the patients via Telekom, and sends ambulance and paramedics after they have confirmed. I am telling you, they have this computers with 3 stations and 3 monitors each, and this huge screen with 2 NEC 30" Screens for the projection purposes... Whoa and their walkie talkies were SO COOL!!!!!!
So we proceeded to the ED, and we get to see how they handle Green Cases, which is minor; Yellow cases, which is still ok; and Red Cases which is like "Pump the Adrenaline Dude!"cases . And as for white cases means, I will see you again in the skies~ And they have 3 bays, Red, Observation and Admitted Bay.. Where they treat the Red cases, and have discussions and admit the patients respectively. And we saw this Indian girl around her 20s got stitched at the forehead when we were there..
Did I mentioned about X-rays? Yeah they X-rays ain't using normal films, they are using Digital X-rays!!! How cool is that? I mean you save time squiting your eyes and paper at the same time!!!! Talk about going GREEEEEEN~
That was pretty much about the whole trip we had today... Well, ya know what? The above trip was only meant for Group Leaders!!! Which means the others won't enjoy this trip like we do!!! Hahaha glad I was chosen and volunteered to go for this!!!!! i love working in HPTJ~~~ I really would love it if I were to work here~
Owh yeah and we talked to this senior in the hospital around his 30s, which is in his mid-specialist.. A malay guy and he really reminds me of Izzie(Izwan: Can we do something new?) because of the way he speaks... He was real cool!!! And he graduated from IMU, though he spent his first 5 years in Manchester under JPA, and darn, his interview went for only 3 minutes and he got it!!! Peeps, wanna know his secret?
Naah, its only for idiots like me who chose to go HPTJ alone and gets to know this super cool guy!!! Hahaha take THAT!!!!
But one thing he said made me really wanted to do the doctor's job is :
"Being a doctor is not about you brains, it is about emphathy for your people, your patients. Without perserverence and harship, you will never be acknowledged by anyone, even yhou had graduated in Edinburg, because there ARE people who did locally and ARE able to beat you flat."
Yes, emphathy... That is a real big deal for me, especially when I am seeing hurted patients...
Well, I can live with it if he could!!! And he enjoyed Univerisity life by going to nigth clubs!!!! Ok that mean I don't have to be All-Mighty Know it All to succeed as a doctor!!! Haha people, life is not about study ya know!!!
Another plus point as a Group leader, all twelve of us gets to see LIVE Operations in the Operation Theatres in HPTJ tomorrow morning 8 o'clock sharp with gowns and all!!! Privileges!!! I love love them!!! Don't mind the hardwork! Mind the rewards!!!!Haha!!! Still happy you went to HKL peeps? I don't think sooo~~ HPTJ Is much more better, higher standard and technologically later than HKL!!!
Honestly, working in a hospital is like meeting the Extremes of life all-in-one
Fear of the death
Happy of the living
Stressed of the problem
Sorrow of the dead
it is in a package. And We as doctors(or future docs) must be able to handle these every single day , even we are in our worst state..
And to live my life live and dangerously, I'd say doctor is the best career ever...
Owh yea, talk abour careers, nothing is better to have COMRADES!!! I met these fabulous dudes in today's meeting who are:
Gan(he is from Karak,Pahang and he scored 13A1s!!! WTH~~~~)
And we have these kind of people who likes cam-whoring in toilets..WTH~~~
And they were super cool!!! I don't mind going to the same course and same working place with them , they were great!!1 And they are real naughty boys because they practically checked out every houseman (female ones du-uh) and kept saying that they will do this and that.. yaddaa... what else raging hormones do?
As for me, I just tagged along and talked about stuffs, and the girls in the leader's group were cool too!! Except for one girl, I think she is a Chinese-Malay mix and honestly, she was a bit of annoying.. I mean she looks sweet and all but, her "stick to the notes" literally, attitude was a pain in my Arse!!! Doctor need spontaneous thinking and not all about notes dear!!1 All you need is your common sense!!! According EVERY doc I have met in HPTJ!!!Talk about Ms. All-Mighty Know it All.....
Conclusion: I am freaking tired because I just had a 3 hours squash session with my squashers and darn, they are getting way better~~
And today we met a new guy, Tee Kim Siong from Kota Bahru, Kelantan who is doing his Finance and Commerce degree in subang and I'm telling ya, they first thing I thought when I say him was:
Cina kia... He really had the Chinese look but he looks good looking also lar.. Considered leng chai also...(Shit Binn is checking out guys again... wouldn't he be???) haha serious he looked freaking fit i his tights and his crotch were so VISIBLE~~~ Haha being slutty now shit... Hit the STOP button!!!!
And he didn't even look at me the whole session in the court!!! I was like.. Shit, he hates me... gourd... He hates me... and even when I was looking into the court he was playing he also ignored my vision rays...
But, after we were one he gave these great smile and strong handshake and said bye to me and Yanne.. Thank goodness... I thought I was done for back there...
No worries, when there are leng chai like Siong, there are alson leng luis like Yanne~~~
Yanne will be the typical girl next door with this superbly nice attitude~ She has the typical girl's body and she is tall and big for a girl.. And she is Better than me NOW!!! Guess going for training during SPM do have its perks huh? And she greets everyone in the court and smiles to everyone, unless she was tired or constantly missing her swings because she seldom do that..
Haha, leng lui and leng chai in the court, Can't you feel the HEAT peeps??? Okay.. I need to crash in the bed right now because I need to report in HPTJ by 7.30 tomorrow, and I have a college life to catch up~ So tune in whole week for more of this Hospital Attachment programme organized by JPA Malaysia ok? Touch wood, even I didn't get this JPA scholarship, I am still glad I came for this, it brings a whole lot meaning to my life in setting my foot in the doctor's career...
On call for 2 months in the first 3 years!!!
