Too Much Info…..
This happened in a large teaching hospital with a patient who had reported for a minor surgery and was allotted an intern to be operated by
Me : Call me when you are ready to start- after anesthetizing the patient. I have to check this PG student’s surgery which is nearly over and I will be with you to oversee your surgery.
Intern : yes sir, yes sir, all right sir. (leaving out just the 3 bags full)
Me : (approaching a few minutes later) Everything ready? Shall we start?
Intern : yes sir.
Me: (taking knife in hand) – Let me make the first incision. So, which area?
Intern : First I was living in vysarpadi sir, now we have shifted to perambur.
Me : (giggling into my mask which is thankfully hiding my face)- I meant the area of surgery- right or left? Which side? And I don’t mean your house site…
Intern : silence.
And I wonder why this kind of thing happens only to me.
