I got out of the blogging rhythm this week. Sorry about that. Will try and get back into it. I just watched a show on ABC called NY Med. I don't know why I want to spend downtime watching exactly what I do all day, but I know someone from med school who knows someone who knows someone who's in it, or something like that, so I figured I would check it out.
This week's episode-- I think it aired on Tuesday-- had the healthiest-looking guy having a liver transplant that I have ever seen. Do they give the patients makeup? This guy did not look like a transplant patient. I don't know if I can watch any more episodes of the show. It made everything look too easy. Everyone had a good outcome, nurses seemed like they had brains, no one messed up, it seemed like there were hardly any patients, even the homeless people seemed jolly and harmless. I don't know if they left all of the terribleness out in editing, or the hospital only agreed to let them air stuff that reflected well on them, but where were the patients lingering on stretchers in the hallway because everyone forgot about them? Where were the broken computers? Where were the attendings yelling at residents for no good reason?
I'll probably give it one more episode, since the preview showed that next week, Dr. Oz will get a colonoscopy on camera. That seems like fun. I've always wondered what Dr. Oz looked like on the inside.
