Gone are the Days..

Gone are the days when Doctors consider as God..

Gone are the days when Medicine was considered as Noble profession..

Gone are the days when patients respect their healer, the Doctor..

Gone are the days when Medicine was not the profession to earn money but to serve the unfortunate..

Gone are the days when the patients trust their Healer blindly..

Gone are the days when so many Doctors does not put their 100% efforts because they know that patient will take other’s opinions also..

Gone are the days when feelings matter from both sides, now only the money speaks..

But I must say Doctor is here to cure the illness, the pain, of a patient as that was patient’s priority.. and the patient is here just for showing gratitude for the Doctor’s efforts as that is what he wants mainly..

Real Happiness.

Nurse tapping on his rest room door in a rush, and he tirelessly opens up the door, little bit irritated as he barely had one and half hour sleep, before this nurse brings him back to his senses.

“What happened ? Why are you disturbing me again, is there again the usual delivery case in an emergency room ?” he asked to nurse and wondering why all the mothers have decided to give birth to their babies on his emergency duty.

She said “No sir, there is a trauma case of a young female, who lost almost whole of his lower body’s skin and muscles in a road traffic accident, and whatsoever is present, they are in patches, she is bleeding profusely and she is posted for surgery as her left leg bones are also broken”

He hurriedly runs to the emergency department for doing the “Pre-Anaesthesia Checkup” and assess her situation, given orders for preservation of blood units and inform his anaesthetic consultant about the condition of patient.

Aniket was a 2nd year Post-graduate Anaesthesia resident and was on night duty that day, he arranges all the things which he would need for anaesthetising this patient, before patient enters into the OT.

Finally the patient was entered and was operated by two surgeons, one was Orthopaedic and another one was Plastic surgeon as she also need skin dressing.

After that day, that female was a continuous visitor of the operation theatre as her skin part needs a regular cleaning and dressing as that was badly damaged during the accident.

And for the same thing, Aniket regularly visits her for her pre-anaesthesia check up before any OT.

During those check ups, once he found that the female patient was depressed and was on the verge of crying, and than the inner  “Inspirational Guru” of Aniket awakened (as he was a avid reader of motivational books) and he just tried to cheer her up, told about theories of the “Secret” documentary movie, about the “Law of Attraction” and about how our happy mind can heal us.

What he was doing that day, was normal for him, as his job was to cure patient physically and mentally, but he didn’t know that the motivation he was giving to that girl was a relief in distress, was a power in her loosing battle, was a ray of light amid darkness, and since that day that girl starts to laugh, always have smile on her face, and the main thing she was recovering, but with a smiling face.

Whenever she entered into the OT, she always enquires about Aniket, if he was not present in her OT.

Finally the day came when she doesn’t need the regular change of dressing and the plastic surgeon discharged her from the hospital after months of treatment, but she was not able to see Aniket on her last day.

One day when Aniket just returned from the hospital in the evening, he found that the bunch of beautiful flowers was carefully placed at the doorstep of his house with the letter on which mickey mouse was smiling in the top left corner of the letter and the words were written in a florescent ink :

Dear Smiling Doctor..

        Finally I am discharged from the hospital, with a good recovery, and the surgeon said that now I don’t need regular dressing, only once in a month I have to come hospital for regular check up.

      Doctor I just want to say that I am really thankful to you not only for the relief you have given me from pain during those painful dressings by your skillful use of anaesthesia, but mainly for the motivation you have given me during those check ups, which really helped me to cope up stress which originates from my physical condition.

    There are many doctors who treat well,but there are only few who alongwith treatment also gives happiness and courage to fight any thing.

   Thank You again… God Bless You..

The Neglected Ones..

Have you ever appreciated when you enter into the clean theatre..

Have you ever appreciated when you enter into the clean Mall, with clean surroundings and everything seems so polished..

Have you appreciated any Corporate Hospitals like Apollo, Medanta, Hinduja for their cleanliness, and everything there seems so up to date and seems to be at their place where they are supposed to be as compare to government hospitals..

Have you ever appreciated the clean roads and surroundings in your residential campus, or the local supermarket guy for guiding you to your desired item or the customer care operator for your phone or broadband service..

May be you appreciated, may be not, I am not sure…

But about TWO THINGS I am sure (about the majority of people)..

  1. They may not appreciated the good things but they definitely  cursed the negative things like dirty roads, improper surroundings, dirty chairs of multiplex, rude behaviour of customer care operator, as everyone has developed the ability to identify ‘bad over good’..
  2. (For this I am almost 100% sure) they haven’t appreciated the person behind the good work because they are the ones who are the most neglected in our society, like the sweepers, cleaners, peons, call centre boy, helpers in supermarkets, nurses, housekeeping staff and so on (list is too long).

Now the question is why  like this happens in our culture that we always praise the ‘bigger jobs’ (as we think so) and neglect these type of jobs ?

From my experience working in a hospital, these so called non-important jobs people are  the pillars of any institution, acting as the lubricant of a machinary, because even if a single cotton piece at the time of need not available to us than we as a doctor become helpless (trust me).

Remember the strike by sweepers in Delhi, last May 2015, everywhere garbage and litters could be seen, even in post South Delhi. This is the example of our over dependance on them.

So just want to convey you all that EVERY PROFESSION, every people in that profession is IMPORTANT. 

We have to respect them, just admired their work, give them a smile, this means a lot for them and they will repay you 10 times for you smile.

Not everything can be judged by money, somethings should be feel by its VALUE.
