Speaking

I was scared to see a dead body, but when you are working, it’s a part off our job, it’s ok. Maybe you think you are afraid, but you are not. Most people can overcome this. When I was a medicine student, I told my teacher I was scared about the blood and the knife. My teacher is a surgeon, I was studying in a surgeon department for 6 months. This teacher take me to the surgeon room, he forced me to be his assistant all day.He told me you are not really scared of the blood and knife. When I hold the knife at the first time, my hand is a little shake. This teacher told me, don’t scare, you can use this knife on this patient, not on yourself. Maybe he would be painful, not you.

I met a very weird family. The daughters sent their father to the ER. My colleague thought this old patient need to stay in the unit, so I accepted This patient is 93 years old. At the first time I saw his two sons, they said my father is very old so we can accept everything. You doctors and nurses just need to try your best. This patient died yesterday night, this two sons yelled at us. they said their father is great when he come.

I don’t like to talk about work with my friends, but I like to complain to my teachers.
