Yesterday was my first day of clinicals for this semester. I gave lots of shots, prepared and hung a lot of medications, and was able to learn a lot from all the staff. I have to say that it was a very full day. We reported to the hospital at 6:30 am sharp and were there till about 7 pm. During that time the following events happened:
A patient died right in front of me.
A Code Red (Fire) was called.
My patient started hitting on me and asked me for my phone number.
While it's true that most days are very busy and a little crazy at the hospital, this is not the norm. I am way excited for my clinical days coming up where I will be able to be in the operating room standing over the surgeon watching operations all day long. I will also be able to spend entire days in endoscopy and the ER. This is going to be an awesome clinical semester!
