incompetence

another one of those “smite-me-on-the-spot-PLEASE” moments…

surgeon: a 49-year-old gentleman presents with severe epigastric pain. how do you investigate?

incompetent sem6 person(s): ultrasound? ogds? cxr? fbcrplfteverytestunderthesun?

surgeon: nooooooo…before all that?

*silence*

*more silence*

incompetent sem6 person(s): (in a sudden rush of intelligence) ecg to rule out cardiac causes?

surgeon: (sinking back into chair visibly relieved) yes i did say 49-year-old gentleman!

sigh. how la to save lives like this?!
