Since joining the “force”, i heard many time when my specialists remind HO to be hardworking and glad that life is so much better as compare to their HO days.

Specialist 1: I used to do 15 calls per month. I din’t see the sunlight for whole week.

Specialist 2: there is only 4 HO in the entire department. You need to take care of 30 patients.

Specialist 3: You’re all had double the salary and only need to work for one tenth of the work of my HO days.

Obviously my specialists had fond memories of the HO days and i suspect they proud of what they had achieved.

But seriously, my own conclusion is this days that is too many of HO.

I don’t mind, why so many of us since it made life easier and work less.

Then, i see the main of reasons for this situation to be occurred.

Every since late 90s till today, with establishment of private medical colleges and with countries like Russia and Ukraine, study medicine had became more easier.

I’m one of the benefactor from the new situation.

Let hope that there will be news on unemployed doctors in the future.

Do you read any news today?

Some of the news heading often on unfortunate event, like fatal accidents, violent murders and other social issues.

Some of the events may be a subject of discussion and often, it remained a discussion and seldom affect one emotion.

Today, i got know a shocking news. it was from the pasar where mum operated her food stall. The only son of a vendor had attempted suicide (his fate unknown).

I’m was dumbfounded why was a young man like him had done such act.

I personally do not know him but we do buy stuff from their stall and i think he is a descent young man who one day may succeed the stall, which pretty profitable.

I think one tend to protect one emotion by being numb around what happening around us.

But sometime, when one is somehow know the person who the centre of the event, this may trigger a emotional response.

I had just began my O & G posting 1 week ago. I am trying hard the necessacities skills and adopting the new working environment.

Just like the patients that i’m had seen in surgery ward, there are substantial numbers of foreign workers who are mother-to-b. I met a numbers of indo ladies and well, most of them are cleaner. Then, almost everyday, that are one or two more Burmese ladies.

The staff nurse joked by Raya time, most of patients were consisted of foreign workers as most of the local had balik kampung!!!

Still, the foreign workers got equal treatment from the hospital.

I’m wonder what the local had missed since they’re rather preferred private????
