as a Dr

today was my 2nd day as an intern in a near by Urban health centre.Its located nearby my college and to be frank was really surprised and in fact proud of facilties its providing. to the local population.It has all the basic facilities like regular anc[antenatal-pregnancy] checkup,US,xray,family planning techniques,immunization , regular field works[ counseling,govn school health check up etc] including basic ward facilities for the needy.

yesterday-
we had a free health check up visit to a nearby govn school[1st to 5th std]..totally there were 61 children.Really enjoyed interacting with these children.

today-
was immunization day..learned the practical aspect of it and the different routes used for it[im,subcutaneous and intradermal]....here abt 500rs worth of immunization drugs are provided to every child every week till the age of 5yrs and and all this are funded by our government for free of cost ...!!!...some thing to feel proud abt:))

free of cost immunization?
that nurse who gives the injection will take ten bucks for every injection right under your nose, saying its for transportation and bull shit. after 2 pm her and one moron health inspector who ll dictate 'notes' to you soon will share.
i ve seen it happen.
