Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
Not much time to update these days, but found this excellent blog post that needed to be shared.
Too many times I’ve seen patients turfed from service to service. In the lounges, emergency doctors are ridiculed and colleagues bad-mouthed. Everyone thinks their specialty is the only service that actually looks after patients. This has to stop and everyone needs to be part of it.
I was on call the other night and teaching a soon to be senior-resident, how to survive in her next year. My best advice to her was to “be nice to everyone, not just the patients.”
