QUOTE OF THE MONTH

Today I was reverse engineering one of Cliff Reids posts on state-of-the-art Resus ME. This in order to present it as my own material. I’m due for a talk on shock. In the comments section I found this true masterpiece:

“…my registrar used to sleep in the pan room sluice and get hosed down with liquid shite every half hour. But you tell that to the young doctors today and they won’t believe you.”

    what dont they believe? That the ED registrar had time to sleep?

  2. Aw c’mon…I thought the bit about interns sleeping in the sharps bin was better…and apologies to Monty Python.

    “Aye, when I were an intern, we’d get up half an hour before we went to bed, lick the patients clean before the consultant ward round. We PAID the patients for the privilege of tending them and worked 168 hours a week. Sleep? That were a luxury…us interns used to share one sharps bin to get our heads down…and THAT was considered luxury…my registrar used to sleep in the pan room sluice and get hosed down with liquid shite every half hour.

    But you tell that to the young doctors today and they won’t believe you.

    At least you kept out the comments on fisting…

      Hi Minh and Tim,
      Thanks for sharing memories from back in the days! I´m guessing sleeping in a sharps bin didn´t really hurt you in the long run but perhaps I should be glad things have improved since. Sorry for quoting you out of context..

      Now if will you excuse me gentlemen, I have a mock execution to attend. It is a cherished part of our induction week for new registrars.

      Now where did I put those blanks…ah yes…in the box where I keep the live rounds…/ DK
