TIFU by doing a pelvic exam on a standardized patient during medical school

Throw away for obvious reasons.

I'll try to keep this short as there isn't much to say. Our medical school class has to do sensitive exams (pelvic, genital, rectal) toward the end of our second year, right before we are allowed to go into the hospital wards. The idea is that these people are paid to have the sensitive exams done, each person has 15-20 students examine them. The vast majority of the time the people getting the exams done are elderly or former healthcare workers who are comfortable with their bodies, want to help educate students, and make some money at the same time. The patient our group had was an uncharacteristically young woman, she was probably in her mid twenties. This shouldn't have been an issue at all, but my medical school class is very conservative, nearly half is already married and the other half is still waiting to have sex until marriage. At least three guys in my group had probably never seen a vagina, let alone touched one. This made the experience way

When I see a patient come in for a prescription for antidepressants I always make sure to give them a compliment

I work in a pharmacy and we obviously deal with a lot of prescriptions for all sorts of medical conditions, and although I am nice to everyone who comes in, I always make sure I'm extra nice to people who are picking up meds for anything marked for depression, anxiety or other mental illnesses. My colleagues have noticed this and asked me why I'm always so nice to certain patients - and although I know everyone could do with a compliment like 'I love your hair' or 'that's a really nice top, where did you get it?' I always feel those who have mental illnesses could use the extra pick me up. As someone who has battled with mental illness myself, I know I always appreciate the niceties and want to pass this on to other people. My colleagues have called me weird for doing this, but the patients always seem to appreciate it. Would you say this is wrong or strange to do?

EDIT: thank you so much to everyone for all the kind words and the awards! It means so much. I just want to apologise for

It should be illegal to bill for surgeries if the patient dies in the table

Surgery is a service. It the surgeons’ job to perform the surgery correctly and keep you alive. If that doesn’t happen then the hospital did not provide a billable good or service and should not be charging you for it.

If a waiter brings up your order to your table and drops it on the floor, you’re not going to pay for that - you didn’t do anything wrong and it was his/her job to get you your food correctly. Sometimes it just happens and it is nobody’s fault but you still aren’t going to pay/be charged for it.

(Exceptions are understandable if it is a highly difficult or experimental surgery the patient wants)

Edit: Wow I did not expect this much discussion when I posted this. I am really glad for it because that’s why I use and enjoy Reddit - discussion with people from all walks of life. I clearly am unable to keep up with every one but I try to still be active in some comments

Do you get irritated by the little inaccuracies with how patients are portrayed in film?

I’m talking about the Alaris pump next to the patient that’s not even turned on, or it has no channels, or the channels aren’t even turned on. The vital signs that are perfect 60BPM with a perfect pleth and 120/80 BP. The patient on a vent and the vent isn’t hooked up. The patient that’s been in a coma for years but somehow doesn’t have a line in every hole. Recently I saw one where they had taped a Dobhoff next to the patient on their pillow.

Most blatantly I think of the opening of Dr. Strange where he’s doing a crani with a C-arm over the patient, but no one’s wearing lead and nothing is draped. He scrubs, then puts on a mask, then open gloves ... to remove the bullet from someone that just got an MR head.

To the layperson they wouldn’t even think of these things but my wife and I scoff at movies when these really simple things go unnoticed by producers.

What’s the most blatant disregard for accurate patient portrayal you’ve seen in media?

IAmA recovering patient that suffered from Pectus Excavatum. I just had the Nuss procedure completed after I found out about it on r/IAmA about 6 years ago and want to pay it forward! At 27 years old I am the oldest patient my surgeon ever operated on. Ask me anything!

Excuse the possibly incoherent text. I'm fading in and out due to the amount of morphine I'm on.

I (27M) suffered from a condition called Pectus Excavatum, a defect in the sternum that causes the chest to sink inwards. It can apply pressure to the heart and lungs which can lead to complications with breathing.

The condition is usually treated early on when the defect is first noticed in middle school or highschool (13-15yo)

The cardiologist I saw for the procedure advocated heavily against corrective surgery when I met with him 14 years ago. The procedure he was aware of involved cutting the sternum, breaking ribs and installing a metal plate.

Many patients who had this procedure done experience chronic pain afterwards and their quality of life decreased . While I experienced shortness of breath and chest pain during exercise, I weighed the options and decided not to go through with the surgery as I could lead a relatively normal life that I could jeopardize with the procedure.

Had a patient yesterday who was allergic to "West"

Nature is healing. The crazy motherfuckers are starting to come back into the ER for their bullshit.

A mid 30's abdominal pain x4 weeks (couldn't come in before because Covid) ambulated to my gurney and before she settles down, pulls a compass from her purse and tells my tech that she can't be in this bed because it faces West, and she is allergic to facing West.

My tech, not being paid enough to deal with this lunacy, simply informs me that the patient is allergic to West, gives me her "you're going to love this one" smile I've seen before, and walks away.

Patient refuses to get into a gown, refuses to stop snacking from her purse, and is using her stupid little compass to select a bed that won't aggravate her allergy.

So what are some of the more special allergies you people have seen?
