New year, new interns. They sent around a list with brief bios of everyone. It's cute. Young, untainted medical students, who actually believe all the patients are telling the truth, and really want to work up each and every complaint. Headache for the past twenty years? We need to run tests! No we don't. If it was something, the patient would be dead by now. And the prisoner patient is suddenly complaining of back pain, on the very day we're going to send him back to jail? Why he must be in terrible agony! The gods of scheduling somehow blessed me with a three-day weekend, which means I get the interns once they've been here for four full days...which means they will already be jaded like the rest of us.
