    My experience

    Advertisements



    Well
    I got 12 patients
    I think I did it pretty fine but still feel anxious
    I ran out of time in three cases (neuro all) but can finsihed the PE, and can say good bye to all the patients

    One patient complaint of pain while doing the PE and I cannot conclude that encounter
    I always counsel.
    Just one case I had to repeat again the sentence I said and in other one the patient had to repeat his statement (Lol)
    Always washed hands.
    Always Did fundus exam, one patient was in a hurry, but i thought i did it pretty fine
    always drape before Data gathering except one patient that wants to be right before starting the PE
    Always answer all challenging
    Felt very comfortable during the encounter
    Always did PAM HUGS FOSS
    Forgot to tell about pelvic exam in the future
    Forgot to perform CVA tenderness in one case
    rest of all , did everything

    What do you think????????
