Today, a patient was late for a psychiatry appointment, after having missed his previous two. I am the medical student on the team that was supposed to do his assessment. I said, "You snooze, you lose." Everyone stopped and looked at me. Apparently, he missed them because he has narcolepsy. FML

  • Yeeeeeeeeaaaaahh, you're the kind of person I fear achieving a medical degree.

    ...You DO know you're allowed to read (and pay attention to) the case files...right?

  • Wow, next time, read the patient's chart before going to meet with him. If we nursing students can do it, surely you medical students can do it too.
