IDK if we rotate there anymore. Ugh. That was not a good rotation.My first GYN exam:
I was on my second rotation as a MS3 at Virtua Hospital and was assigned to the clinic. The senior resident was allowing me to do part of the examination on a primigravid young female (which was not always possible as an inexperienced young male). I was meekly completing the bimanual portion of the examination when the patient inappropriately blurts, "This is how I got into this mess to start with!" Her husband was sitting next to her, and that was a moment of sheer embarassment. My resident was almost in tears.
I'm not saying that you don't sometimes perform a sneak and peak at 5am, you just don't document a that it's a sneak and peak.Hospital medical telemetry unit: Medical student documented in his note,"Patient was asleep, but I was still able to perform a full examination." The attending called him out on that at the nurses' station, reading it aloud and making it sound extremely awkward.
.... are you seriousThis happened to me.
First time doing a pelvic exam on a real patient in the ED. I was walking through what I was supposed to do with the resident prior to me actually performing the exam. It was all going fine until she asked me how I would proceed to perform the bimanual exam. For some reason I thought that it meant putting "two fingers in the pink and one in the stink" and made a shockeresque pose with my finger and tried explaining I was attempting to check the pouch of douglass for fluid accumulation. The resident glanced at the nurse sitting nearby and burst out in laughter saying "I don't need to know what you do at home..." and proceeded to explain to me the correct technique of the bimanual. Fml.

Oh god, this scares me because I'm a pretty awkward person and I can see myself saying something this stupid when I'm nervous.It was my first rotation of M3, and I was on inpatient Psych. We were generally pretty busy, but for the past 10 minutes it had been pretty quiet and we were just sitting around. To break the silence, I randomly blurted out "so how many times have you been sued?" to my attending, with whom I was working 1-on-1.
I got dinged in the "Professionalism" category of my evaluation that rotation.
Had a female med student while in MICU would put her stethoscope in her mouth as a nervous habit.
AFTER she had seen patients.....had not been cleaned off. We told her to stop it and alerted her to it. And she did it about 2 more times that day and other days. Not sure if she has gotten that under control yet.................
