Last friday, I had demonstrated and assisted my HO to insert a triple lumen;
It was almost 2 years ago, back at HDU HKL unit, my MO had shows me the way of setting a CVP line.
I guess I had become a teacher myself and I’m sure my HO sometime later will be able to do without assist.
Therefore, in medical field, many skills can be acquired given time and instructions; This is also include in the diagnosis and management;
With this routine of training and working, as time go on, a junior inexperience HO can be a skillful with procedure and knowledge medical officer.
But, there is a prerequisite
ONE must the RIGHT ATTITUDE
The readiness to learn from mistake, to be able to bear the insult from the seniors, the ability to compassion, to be able prevent one from burn out;
Even the best medical Universities graduates does not guarantee a good doctor.
A fresh graduate is like big chunk of diamond stone which just extracted from the mine.
To become an expensive commodities i.e a shinning diamond required careful and skilful technique of polishing.
Therefore, as a MOs or Specialist or Consultants, It’s vital that we teach our junior officer the right knowledge and the right attitude.
What is beyond salvage is the doctor with BAD ATTITUDE!
