Since the start of classes is near, I decided to start processing requirements for my enrollment at school. I hate doing this because it’s 1) tedious- I need to personally process my papers, 2) tiring- imagine, I have to complete all my lab reqs before getting those enrollment forms. ugh! aaand lastly, 3) complying the laboratory requirements. This includes blood extraction, urinalysis, chest x-ray and fecalysis. I’m fine with the first two test but with CXR and fecalysis? It’s really giving me a hard time. I hate it when the Rad Technician tells me to take off my bra and wear those thin and light patient’s gown that’s got big arm holes as he instructs me to breathe deeply and hold my breath as I place my hands at the back… to think that all the RadTechs in that hospital were MEN! and they’re staying at a room divided by a glass behind me. Wtfudge?! Could you guys please shoo off! Can I get some privacy? Can’t you see I’m actually half naked? And the only thing that covers me is this thin cloth? Ugh! It was really uneasy for me. I hate doing CXRs. Another thing that I despised doing is to collect my stools for the fecalysis exam. Yes, collect and store them in the clear specimen container provided and handle them personally to the laboratory with all other patients and passers-by seeing your “sample” placed (or displayed, shall I say) at the counter. This test makes me delayed in completing the reqs most of the time. Imagine the effort of waiting for nature to call (lol!) and the embarrassment. Gaaah!
Oh well, kudos to me. I did finish doing those things (hahaha!) aaand, I am officially enrolled! tadaaah! :D
okay honey P… carry on.
Joseph Lister applying antiseptic using spray method during an operation to maintain asepsis. The antiseptic used was CARBOLIC ACID or PHENOL, though it caused irritation and inflammation to the skin, and its vapors were corrosive to the eyes and respiratory tract.
I can’t imagine a scenario in an O.R. where the doctor or circulating nurse SPRAYS carbolic acid on the sterile field! HAHAHA! that’d be NUTS!!!
George Polti created the Thirty-Six Dramatic Situations categorizing every situation that might occur in a story or performance— crime, vengeance, self-sacrifice for an ideal, etc.
Of course, there are other attempts to do this as well. Here’s another popular way to categorize the human…
Who likes to work so hard on a hospital for about 124 hours a week just to find out that a part of the taxes you’re paying goes to support the promiscuity of your fellowmen?
