time factor...


when a case comes to casualty...

time taken

for history taking-15mins [with my full blown butler tamil]

for xray -30 min...yeah thats how our emergency works here....everyone here [except the docs] work at their own pace whether the patient convulses,faints or dies

for me to see that x-ray and come to a diagnosis-another 15mins....

means just for a simple cough case i spend a useless 1hr [of my life] and end up prescribing some lame tonic or tablet [cant prescribe genuine ones available outside since the patients cant afford.....they come to casualty with a 5rs/10rs note in their pocket!]

p.s-
1-another night duty yesterday-not much cases but still no decent sleep..coz i had to attend a call at 3am for a simple asthma case....
2-happy ganesha chathurthi :)
