MedPeds – Day 13

It was a long one. I honestly don’t know how actual doctors keep up with the notes. It’s necessarily an arduous process, but it takes a while especially since patients are constantly coming in before I get a chance to finish. My dad describes it being like that I Love Lucy episode when Lucy and Ethel are working in chocolate factory they have to wrap the chocolates, but they keep coming faster and faster and the more behind they get the harder it becomes to catch up.

Efficient note writing will probably come with time, as well as efficient patient interviews. Now that I think about it, interviews is probably the thing I need to work on more. I am constantly giving patient’s space to talk about every concern that they have. While that probably can fly as a student, when I’m practicing I need to be more mindful of how much time I’m spending which each patient.
