All he said was that the phone system was bad and he didn't have his stethoscope...was it that big of a deal?

I forgot my stethoscope traveling between sites for clinic. Does that mean I should recuse myself from the medical profession ? Or just borrow my CMA's cheap stethoscope, which is what I did on that day. No lives were lost.

In med school, i remember being very impressed with an ortho attending that listened to every patients heart at the "surgery spot"... Until it dawned on me he never had to remove them from ears, and actually the earbuds were conveniently placed around neck...

Orthopedic auscultation point. Place stethoscope just below xyphoid. You can then document hearing heart/lungs/bowel.

er... the point was that both eartips were somewhere in the vicinity of his C67 spinous process, not the tympanic membranes
