Sidelines 6: New Nurse in Town

I was called in to work on Sunday, and I have to say, after a week of working at the hospital I finally was starting to get the hang of things. I can’t diagnose anything yet, but Dr. Emery is getting better at checking my work and prescribing treatments so I was able to treat several people.

Well, this looks good, I can see straight through.

Bo came in complaining about his stomach or something. I’d heard from cocoa what had happened in the lab, so I was able to point the doctor into the correct direction. Basically see if prolonged “cold” had anything to do with it.

This is a weird reading. I better get the Doctor.

So far my work has been fairly routine, treat anyone whose been diagnosed already, examine the new patients, get Dr. Emery to prescribe a treatment. I get to administer the treatment. Then I make up the beds and go and get another patient from the waiting room. In between things, I test samples and calibrate the machines.

Tiger flu, perhaps?

At the end of Sunday, I was promoted to Medical Technologist from all my work fixing and calibrating the x-ray machines. I think I’m finally ready to start diagnosing patients now!

  1. Medical technologist, yeah! After a rough start, she’s moving up!

    I like the funny diseases and patterns on the skin, they are entertaining. “Bloaty head,” and “Gas and Giggles,” are the two I remember.

    • The only terrifying thing about the doctor job is that you can’t refer the patient after you’ve leveled up. And with all the tests she runs she still usually has two or three options to pick from. I feel like I’m keeping her back from promotion by guessing wrong. Slowly though, we’re learning the symptoms. “Starry eye” is my favorite because it’s easy to diagnose.
