Week 2 of my pledge to ‘invite a patient each week for coffee’ Meet Muriel Robinson who entered hospital 17 days ago after accidentally cooking her electric kettle on the stove 😬🙈 wish I had the solution to getting her home instead of a RACF 😞

Combination of ibuprofen and acetaminophen is no different than low-dose opioid analgesic preparations in relieving short- term acute extremity pain.

On a societal scale emergency care is expensive and stupid. It will always be a net loss making endeavor. But on a human scale we all want a safety net when the unthinkable happens. So emergency care is not a pragmatic choice. It is a moral choice.

“You can teach a canary in a coal mine to meditate, but it’s still gonna die” we need system changes to combat burnout— and remember that “connection (to others) is protection” Dr. Jenny Ramsey

If the patient can read your tweet and identify themselves from your story then it is not sufficiently anonymised. Please do not prioritise the willingness to share a touching moment you have experienced over the right of our patients to confidentiality

Don’t forget post partum depression may affect those in training and our instincts to tell female residents to buck up and move forward may be detrimental to their health and their baby.

"You want me to sit down or--" "Nah I'll just do it real quick" "Shouldn't you hold it a little closer to the tip?" "Nope" "Do you wanna steady your hand or something? "I'm all right. You ready?" "Yeah I guess. I'm gonna hold my little urn if that's ok" "Sure no problem"

There was this amazing young lady. She was my idol,my cousin,my best friend. I looked up to her. She thought she’d hurt her leg, but it was MS. We wrote to each other till she no longer could, as that was our thing. She died at 40. Live life, it’s short.

I have started writing again- I feel like there are all these stories inside me that need to get out! It helps to process what we see and experience every day. Thanks for sharing your story.

Oh, I realized suddenly. It’s not that I’m not smart enough or don’t know enough. It’s burnout. I took my own advice. I cut back. I put exercise on my calendar. I learned to meditate. I started writing. I feel better. I still see patients.

You were 18 months old neighbour, You were choking on a gummy bear, your mom was screaming, I ran in my pj's, you were blue by then, I done CPR on you all the way to the hospital where I could do laryngoscopy, I was able to take it out. You are 18 now,

Life got exciting for a while. We had a son, he got sick. His liver was dying and it would kill him. They said I could donate 1/3 of mine to him- and he would get better. We did it. He is better. My liver grew back. Now we are boring again.
