an experience..

today we had ANC[antenatal-pregnancy] clinic duty where we clinically examine the pregnant ladies and advise them regarding their health,prescribe medicines and do a thorough followup.
overall we examined abt 50-70 ladies [19yr to 35yr old ones]....few among these was so shy for examination tht she almost refused to co-operate...this is one problem we always come across with opposite sex patients....[still remember the male patient in our surgery opd who almost masturbated when one of my friends examined it!!]
The sad part was tht both our BP apparatus weren't working properly(readings were on the lower side) and we had to just guess it and fill in their opd books....no one really cares abt it here[generally in govn institutes] and hope none of them turn out to be hypertensives!...and another problem in these govn places are the attenders[read sweepers,chaprasees] who act as if they own the place and some times they really mistreat these poor patients!

some things[people] never improve!!
