Hospital Stories

I have developed this blog as a way for radiologists,  other physicians, and students to share interesting accounts of experiences that have helped shape their lives and careers.  They can be anything from humerous anecdotes to life-changing events in the hospital.  I hope it will make people laugh and provide guidance and comfort for others trying to make their way through what can be a very difficult, but very rewarding career in medicine.  Sometimes it just helps to know you’re not the only one struggling to get through it!

Confidence Boost

I was at the end of my intern year, and I was tired.  I was doing an ICU rotation for the month and was approaching the final days on service.  The ICU was an interesting place, because you are allowed less freedom to treat patients, and an attending is generally always somewhere close by, so it’s difficult to get into trouble.  …

Patient or Enemy?

When I was a 3rd year medical student, I was tasked with putting a nasogastric tube in an older patient.  The woman was not oriented, and she would not follow the typical commands (such as “swallow”) to help facilitate passage of the tube.  …


When I was an intern, I was assigned to an elderly patient who had moderate issues requiring hospitalization.  The patient’s son was an ophthalmologist and didn’t know enough about medicine to care for his mother, but knew just enough to want to be involved with every aspect of her care.  …

The Business of Medicine

Is anyone else frustrated with the business of medicine?  I guess that’s a stupid question.  But really, when you were training to become a physician, what were your goals?  For me, I wanted to have a career that was meaningful, interesting, and at the same time provided a good living for myself and my family.  …

Bizarro World

While on call on a medicine floor, I saw a patient racing around the hallway, which was circular.  I heard shouts and some nurses and a resident had joined the chase.  Security soon arrived and they finally caught the patient as he tried to run down the hallway that led to the rest of the hospital.  …

Life Changing

I was a medical student on rotation in the medical ICU.  There was a commotion in one of the rooms and all of the residents and students rushed to see what was going on.  As expected, it was a code, and I dutifully joined in, taking my turn bagging the patient and doing chest compressions.  …

If the hand be held between the discharge-tube and the screen, the darker shadow of the bones is seen within the slightly dark shadow-image of the hand itself... For brevity's sake I shall use the expression 'rays'; and to distinguish them from others of this name I shall call them 'X-rays’.  - Wilhelm Roentgen

X-rays ... I am afraid of them. I stopped experimenting with them two years ago, when I came near to losing my eyesight and Dally, my assistant practically lost the use of both of his arms. - Thomas Edison
