I don’t know what is happening to the doctors in Malaysia, and these day, everyone is taking about Houseman problems.
For outsiders (non doctors) may be confuse with the current trend.
It’s make them wonder, is houseman a doctor or not? Are the housemen part of the team ?
Apparently, housemen bashing is a favourite pastime of doctors which surprising some very junior MOs also joining the force of criticising.
Well, IMHO, it is just a trend showing the senior doctors are worrying about their jobs and they are being threaten by the influx of junior doctors (HOs)
Sure, they are definitely some bad apples (HOs) and it’s the one that really give the Hos a bad name.
While every one pointing fingers toward the poor HOs, we should asking ourself, are we a very good doctor?
Are we the super efficient and very knowledge HOs in our housemanship day?
Are we have not making errors during my HOs ?
I DO, I still recollected that when I was a HO in medical, a young man who is a TB patient is in respiratory distress and I failed to put the patient in the acute bed and do the necessary things. My ass only saved by my specialist who managed to spot him when she doing her round. And she did remind me when I work with her.
Well, that is nothing really embarrassed about the blunders/mistakes that we make. The important thing is not to repeat it.
The juniors are really need to be taught and spoon feed. THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE STUFF THAT THEY ARE REALLY NEED TO KNOW!!!
It’s definitely easier to poke fun at your juniors and to certain extend, insult and be little their ignorance, but does it help you and the Ho in the long run.
Would it be easier just to point and guide their to the right direction?
HAVE WE FORGOTTEN THAT WE ONCE MET SOME GOOD MOs/SPECIALISTS which provide guidance to us during the dark days of Housemanship?
