Day 4....We went to the oncology and gynaecology department. There were 3 wards, ward for Sakit Puan, Maternity Ward I and Maternity Ward II. There were only 1 specialist, Dr Ranjit here today and another who was on leave was too kind to come to work also. We have met Dr. Lau, Dr Lim and other HO also. They are all very friendly to us. I super like the maternity ward…haha many pregnant mother and babies!!! We get to chat with those mother who had just gone through labour and look at the little babies…Never saw babies as tiny as this before. Many of them were born last night. There was also a baby as huge as 5kg!!! (Looks like baby of a few months old)
The HO talked to us. He was also a scholarship recipient who studied in Russia. 6 years there. He told us about life there. He said it was ok, studying was fine and the allowance given was really huge amount that he got to travel around the world during winter breaks. And only then I knew the tuition fee in Rusia medical school was much cheaper than Australia! It was approximately RM150,000 only compared to the almost 1mil fee in Australia. My my…But the living expenses there were huge too but please prepare about RM300,000 for that six years if you have the intention to study Medicine there.
Then we went into Labour Room!! Haha. Surprisingly, there were quite a number of mothers there waiting for deliverance and many had just finished. So when we reach there, no screaming was going on but we heard sound of heartbeat of babies in the air.
~Skip the cleaning placenta part ~
(The most interesting part but terrifying normal souls like us. Too much blood.)
When we put on the gloves and mask, we got scolded by a nurse. Well, we deserved it. Because we didn’t know how to put on it properly and didn’t ask for instruction also. So…haha. Fortunately, the scolding was worthy because after that, we were taught in detailed about the way to wash hands, wear and remove gloves and mask. (What we normally do are all wrong!) NEW THING! :D
Then, we spend the whole afternoon in O&G clinic to observe the way of doctors communicating with patients. Soft, tender, not harsh yet professional. Do not get carried away emotionally by patient. Remain calm at all times.
Tomorrow: Specialist Clinic and Closing Ceremony!
p/s: Help..dont want go back KL already. My homework hasn’t touch while most people already finish…!@#$!!!!!!
