Dr Hope's Sick Notes

Acum 2 luni

I've been loving Fake Doctors, Real Friends podcast and so I thought it long overdue that we take another look at Scrubs from a real doctor's perspective. This one is a special one for me as up until recently I've been a teaching fellow, looking after the medical students at my hospital, so bit of a trip down memory lane for me. We also breakdown some of the medical terms along the way!

If you enjoyed this you can see ALL my Scrubs reactions here (I've covered some absolute bangers):

00:00 Welcome back you lucky people!
00:30 EPIC ONER!
01:15 "A right to be a little cocky"
01:47 Is it really Hell?!
02:33 Dammit; I'm being parodied
03:24 Students we worry about
04:06 H\u0026Ps
04:34 Uh oh!
05:27 Student shadowing
06:20 Femoral Triple Lumen
07:13 "Changing the dressing on a fem-bypass"
08:28 "DC the staples on the gastroplasty in post-op"
09:21 History in 5 minutes
10:33 Mistakes were made
11:07 Me at the end of my 5th nightshift
11:35 JD laying the smackdown
12:08 Nurses laying the smackdown on JD
12:41 Pressure-cooker moments best dealt with off the ward
13:31 Dating students
13:59 Arterial Blood Gas challenge
15:42 Scrubs sticks the landing.... again
16:33 Thanks for watching everyone, have a great week!

Medical students (or anyone in healthcare!) leave a comment with your first experiences on the ward; I'm sure viewers would be interested to see how it was for everyone...

@LucenProject we chart DC all the time, generally when removing an IV or any thing else the pt doesn't need to leave with or is finished with. I don't know why anyone would want to remove staples from a fresh post op though lol

You definitely need to do more Scrubs content. The episode after "My Lunch" one day would be awesome, or maybe their first night as the sole residents in season 2. I'd love to hear about your first night as "the doctor on call".

I’m an MS3 on my very first rotation, which happens to be IM. I watched this episode last night and was mostly struck by how much intern/resident level work the crew was asking of their med students - taking an H&P? Absolutely (I do that multiple times per day)… placing orders, drawing cultures, doing vascular consults, etc when a supervising resident isn’t even present? Absolutely NOT… there should never be anything JD has to “clean up” for his med student - b/c (at least in the US) we don’t have the authority (let alone competency) to independently take actions or place orders that aren’t (by design) repeated by the “actual doctors” (i.e. the residents)… as a newbie MS3 myself, I love that I don’t have the authority to act or make decisions that could harm patients, it’s an invaluable safety net and an important component of what keeps patients safe in teaching hospitals.

My guess for "DC the staples": I think "DC" means "disconnect", and it was an instruction to remove staples. Dunno.

JD - just because he's becoming a good doctor, doesn't mean he's a good teacher. Completely different skill set and it's unsurprising that one of the three main characters in Scrubs is shown to not be good at it, at least for the first time doing it.

My father's a (retired) Army Doctor, rheumatologist, and I got him the first two seasons of this show on DVD. We bonded! He says that, besides all the "fairly fantastical silly stuff for comedy" it's the most accurate medical show he's ever seen about hospital life and being an intern and new doctor. I love seeing you react to things, it's so good to see you laughing after the Year That Was. Thank you for keeping my spirits up, Doctor Hope!

I think I can help with 8:28 through 9:17 DC the staples, I think is an unnecessarily complicated way of saying "Remove the staples". I'm not sure if it's a common thing in the UK to say, but saying "DC" in the US can sometimes mean "Disconnect" so in order to throw some jargon in to be confusing to the viewer, I think they're just using the phrase "DC" which is typically used in referring to losing internet connection, as a way of saying "get rid of"

In the US the abbreviation DC means discontinue. It also means discharge it's all in context. I don't think they use it a lot because of confusion. I was a Hospital Corpsman in the US Navy. I worked for doctors and nurses in hospitals and clinics. I was also on a ship. Corpsmen have more autonomy on ships because often you are the only ones on board with any medical training.

There's a similar episode to this one called "My Cabbage.," that you should do too! it also involves JD as an authority figure, but for some bonus relevance it shows how easily germs can spread.

Of course everyone starts out as Josh. But there's a learning curve, and at a certain point, someone who isn't conscientious enough to stop goofing around and actually start improving their performance is going to be too far behind the pack to catch up. JD's concerns were entirely valid, it's just the way he phrased himself that was off. Doctors have to *know* deep down in their bones that the things they do *matter* and that if they screw up, people will suffer... and Josh was neither improving his performance, nor learning how to ask people for help with procedures he wasn't confident with (as evidenced by the large multitude of screw-ups).
amsterdamletter Acum lună
Really enjoy your commentary! I understand that in the context of this episode it seems harsh the way he treats Cabbage (the one who he says won’t make it) but later down the line, he ends up killing one of their favorite patients by accident as he’s leaving so JD was right ultimately even though he could have said it better. Instincts are there for a reason.

I have only seen a medical student shadowing a doctor once, and she pretty much just watched what the doctor did and asked a question. A nurse student in a ADHD support group was super helpful though, like she found a podcast and other helpful resources more than the actual nurses running the group. Though understandably when you are busy all week you don't have energy to do extra work in your free time like the still new and excited students.

Good day, Dr. Hope's Sick Notes, I understand that your schedule is probably chock-a-block (BUSY), but if you could do a reaction/review on a TV show called New Amsterdam, and see how accurate and close to reality, or how much is it dramatize. I don't have any particular episode that I recommend, but you definitely should check this show out, even in your personal time however much time that may be if any at all! thanks, Dr. Hope's Sick Note's.

I think the "triples my workload" comment applies to most training situations. I'm a software engineer and I could say the same thing about our apprentices. A task that I could quickly do on my own in 20 minutes can easily take an hour if I'm training an apprentice and explaining every step in detail. But without proper training we don't get a flow of new competent people, so it's definitely worth it.

When Eliot asks her med student to shave the guy, she's holding a normal, non-electric, safety razor. Please tell me they don't really use that to shave patients. I'm a guy and when my facial hair gets thick, I know one of those won't work. That's a thing you do on a second pass to get the tiny stubs for a clean shave. Basic shave of normal hair requires electricity.

This might seem out of left field, but would you be interested in looking at That 70's Show? I don't remember the exact episode, but there's one where the main character (Eric) helps out his mom as she works as a nurse. Much like Scrubs, I think it really captures a glimpse into what the world of medicine is like, especially that question of how doctors and nurses can literally see someone die, yet still go home and be positive with their families.

As a Licensed Vet Tech (also interned as a medical assistant before going into veterinary medicine), I still connect so much. Much of the medicine is the same, and connecting with pet owners is very similar to connecting with patients. The connections between coworkers are mirrored.
