New Rotation, New Hospital

Okay, it's been ages since I last wrote anything. And everyone knows ni semua gara-gara malas. Nak kata busy, saja mem-busy-kan body with nonsense.

It is the new working year for doctors around Australia mostly, and definitely in Victoria. We started on 2nd Feb 2015 hari tu. As for my non-ED requirements in my ED advanced training, and since I really needed a break from ED, I am now at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital in East Melbourne, Alhamdulillah. However, my application for the 2nd half of 2015 at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Monash Medical Centre got the silent treatment.. well, dah call banyak kali asking about the status of my application but each time they said they still looking for a full timer, instead of a 6mo registrar that I applied, so, lama-lama tu paham-paham je la memang diorang reject dah. Kalau some job recruitment usually diorang akan hantar email/ letter of rejection. Sigh... bukan rezeki la tu. Sob sob sob...

Anyways, talking about the new term, I will be at the RVEEH for 6 months until raya puasa nanti. Such a steep learning curve. Rasa macam tak tau apa-apa pasal these very specialized areas: the eye & ear. So aku banyak tengok You Tube about eye & ear especially on history taking & examinations. Rasa macam medical student balik. My colleagues with ED training background pun rasa mcm tu. Serious takut. 

The people there are very friendly and supportive. They know that the ED registrars dont know anything and they teach you very patiently, 1 small area at a time. We are probably an expert in general medical/ emergency stuff but zero in eye & ear stuff. 

So far, so good. Am not as anxious at work now. Dah buat a round of night shifts hari tu, where we ED reg cover ENT stuff, codes & the wards (dah lama tak buat kerja resident ni.. sheeshh), and the ophthalmology reg covers all the eye stuff. Scary but I went through it selamat.. Alhamdulillah. A week of nights starting wednesday night & abis wednesday a.m. the next week. Then dpt around 5-6 days off. 5 days tu sebab tak kira the wednesday yg abis nights tu. 

So I will be working next this tuesday teaching je in a.m. then seminggu arvo shift.. huhuhu...

Beauty Deadly Sins

This is taken from one of the beauty blogs that I love so much, Musings of A Muse.
Just for fun. Jom buat ni ramai-ramai.

Each one of us must have some sort of beauty sins somewhere somehow. These are mine =)

Greed (excessive desire, esp for wealth or possessions. Tamak haloba): What’s your most expensive beauty item?
--> A perfume by Terry that I bought from Mecca Cosmetica at Myer Melbourne city. Dah charge baru perasan harga... sigh...

Wrath (vengeance. Dendam, marah): What item do you have a love/hate relationship with?
--> cant choose between a concealer or a mascara.

Gluttony (excessive oral intake. Tinggi nafsu makan minum): What brand takes up most of your collection?
--> Clinique, Urban Decay. But I have to count all that I have coz I think I have all sorts of other brands too, kinda mix & match. 

Sloth (laziness. Malas): What product do you neglect the most due to laziness?
--> facial, hair, body masks.Malas nak tunggu to remove them.

Pride (good & bad meanings. The bad one: high opinion to own's merits. Bangga diri, takbur, sombong, bongkak, berlagak): What product gives you the most confidence?

Lust (intense desire. Nafsu): Which item is top of your beauty wish list?
--> ?botox. Hahahahahaahhaaa.. I dont even know what my wish list is at the moment. If I think I need/ want something I would just go buy them. Then regret later... sigh..

Envy (discontent of other's advantanges. Dengki): Which makeup product/look is great on others but not on you?
--> highlighter.

Happy New Year 2015

Havent written much in the past 2 years.

Anyways, just wishing everyone a happy, productive, prosperous, healthy & peaceful new year & beyond.

Feeling Entitled?

My thoughts on this article published by blogger Aku dan Kehidupanku
Link: http://zouldahanblog.blogspot.com.au/2014/12/aku-dan-minggu-ini.html?showComment=1419379571822#c2548898691721824253

"Assalamualaikum, I feel for you. I agree with your note here. Memang kita sebagai healthcare workers sangat serba salah. Some people think its their right to get free medical treatment, but are willing to pay hundreds & thousands of dollars for their alternative supplement/ rawatan/ beauty products in the name of prevention & cure.

Doctors yang ada business sendiri, while they are making money themselves, at the same time kena bayar for the business sustainability tu jugak. Itu kerja diorang, their occupation. As a job, you deserve your gaji. Sama macam kalau kerja jadi cikgu, you deserve to get your gaji, right. So why pertikaikan the charge?

And healthcare business is not like business jual shaklee or jual asap. Government banyak sangat kasi subsidi to the klinic kesihatan, hospital, etc and thats why orang2 yg pergi to these healthcare premises tak nampak. Cuba kita tunjuk spreadshit of the cost of each item--> blood tests, syringes, alcohol swab, medicine, electricity utk guna computer setiap kali jumpa patient tu, air utk basuh tangan after jumpa setiap patient to minimize infection risks, etc dan termasukla service consultation. Hence, that's how much probably you pay for each GP clinic visit.
RM100 yes nampak banyak sangat, but kalau doctor buat kerja cincai & charge murah supaya patient tu kekal sakit & datang kat dia semula, agaknye tu yg the public nak. There are reasons why some people need some tests, some people just need consultation. Tak semua patients sama macam cube Lego. And yes kesihatan is your right, but only if you are taking all the appropriate steps to look after yourself first... not smoking, no alcohol drinking, no illicit drugs, senaman keep active, tak gemok, jaga makan, jaga tido, jaga emosi, jaga keperluan spiritual, etc.. then the healthcare is your rights.

Your rights to eat, patut ke people give you food for free kat any tempat makan because it is your right to eat?

Everything in this world is a business, all have their own costs; monetary, time, energy, emotional costs. Memang banyak yg tak nampak semua tu. Contoh, when you are attending an office family day. Cuba fikir the time & energy spent to prepare the food, to kemas rumah, to make sure semuanye berjalan lancar. Tambah lagi kalau ada ahli-ahli buat pasal tak nak tolong ke apa, dah naik kos emosi kat situ. Apatah lagi the money spent for that particular event. Datang plak tetamu-tetamu ni yg datang amik food sebanyak-banytaknye (esp kalau buffet lah), then siap nak bawak balik coz its their right to food so nak bawak balik utk ahli keluarga diorang.. maklum la office punye function, aku kerja situ, aku layak bawak balik semua ni utk anak2 aku. Heh...
And of course the tuan rumah hafta buat sehabis baik lah nak kasi semua cukup semua kenyang, and tak membazir, etc. Kalau sekadar buat ala kadar, air minum pun setengah gelas utk setiap tetamu, kerusi takde, sayur lunyai, tissue kain lap takde, etc, and buat tetamu mcm pengemis je, tu semua sangat2 tak patut.

Contoh saja ni. But in healthcare, similarly, a business in itself. Both the system & patients kena la respect each other. Of course banyak lagi menda to point out on each side. We cant control the system. We can only look after ourselves.

And since this article is about frustration of how some patients are, there, this is my 2 cents as a healthcare worker."

Sob, sob, kena kerja on Xmas season... today, tomorrow xmas day, lusa boxing day. Hubby is off for amost 2 weeks during this festive season here. And I am stuck at the hospital. Setiap tahun... Just because I dont celebrate xmas, doesnt mean I dont have a family at home who have their days off during this time of the year. 
Sabar je lah yg mampu. Keep going. Hopefully all Victorian & visitors are well & safe, tak perlu datang hospital buat masa ni... Sigh...
