I've been a fan of The Onion for many years. For those of you unfamiliar, the onion is a satirical newspaper that focuses on current events. I have seen it trick people on Facebook before. Anyway, let's enjoy a nice laugh during a difficult time such as this.
If you have an idea of something you want me to cover in-depth, please let me know because I take your requests seriously. We will be back with more Medical Drama Review/Responding to comments Series in a couple of weeks so please submit more names of shows/questions you'd like for me to watch/answer. Love you all!

The babynapper was posing as a nurse and when my mum brought up this other "nurse" to the one who actually worked there, mum found out the other was not someone working at the hospital. We changed rooms and went home very quickly after that. :)

  • The one about poker buddies - a number of years ago, I fell awkwardly and severely broke my humerus (upper arm) - known to be exceedingly painful, and not funny at all! - at a bar (whilst sober!) for a singer friend's gig. Leaping into action, the friend came over and utilised the skills from his other job, which just so happened to be as a hypnotist - and despite my being a total cynic, within minutes the pain had just GONE!! The paramedics and doctors at the hospital initially diagnosed a simple sprain, saying that if I'd actually broken my humerus I "would have been screaming" - and it was only by my repeated insistence that they sent me for an x-ray at all... The next thing I know, the doctor, two medical students, *and* two nurses all come to the room and share my results - a clear double fracture to my upper arm - and with looks of wonder, confirm with me that not so much as a paracetamol (acetaminophen) pill had passed my lips, to counteract the excruciating pain I "should" have been feeling, but for the hypnosis! Over the next hour or so, whilst waiting for a temporary cast, barely a minute went by without a nurse or doctor knocking on my door, and asking if it was ok for such-and-such a person to come in and see me - at first it was other A&E (ER) staff, then their colleagues working on other shifts, before moving onto their friends from other departments, off-duty nurses there to pick up their spouses, two of the hospital administrators, and several of the hospital managers - at least one of whom had actually driven in from home, just to gawk at me! I honestly didn't mind a bit though, as the looks on their faces were priceless - the way they'd look at me, then at the x-ray, and then turn back to looking at me just smiling away at them, was hilarious! Sadly, the effect had worn off by the time I awoke the next morning to travel back to the hospital, and the pain whilst having my back slab (immobilising cast) fitted, was genuinely worse than birthing my 10lb 8.5oz "little" one! - and though my hypnotist friend tried helping me again several times over the following weeks and months, when I had to be hospitalised on several occasions due to the severe pain caused by complications and the resultant surgeries, it sadly seems to have been a kind of "one-off" deal, but I'll still be forever grateful - and hey, it makes for one helluva great (true!) story...!

  • Not only do you need to buy the patient without a pulse time for the defibrillator to get to him, but a defibrillator cannot start a heart from zero. It can only bring it into a good rhythm when the heart is basically doing everything at once but out of order. However the chess compressions will at least help pushing the blood through the system and bring the heart into a position where a defibrillator will help. Sad truth is, you have a chance of about seven percent working (saving the patient) Better than 0 but not great.

  • When ever a physician asks if they could bring in a student, I always say yes. I also tell the student that if they have any questions at all on my condition(s) I would happily answer them because I feel that the only way interns are going to learn is by questions and the spread of information. To date, I have talked to them about my: Amputation and phantom limb syndrome (it's real and a lot of fun), being on dialysis, etc. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences and I feel they also really appreciate it.

  • So.... This is a sadly true story from germany: We got something similiar like the onion and it's calle 'The Postillion'. For the most part you can definitly see the Satire in it.. But one time there was an article that because of the Fugitive coming to germany the doctors have to operate in the night because then the patients are sleeping and they won't need anesthesia.. And some pretty smart people seemed to think that this was true and shared it on social media..

  • I've been gotten by these kinds of things too! The Onion manages to get me sometimes. Also I've ~never~ been asked permission for residents or students to join my doctor or surgeon. I've been in multiple times, and they just say "oh this is X, they're a student/resident/etc and they'll be sitting in on this" and I'm like "........okay". I didn't know they needed to ask!

The nurses were just standing there against the wall, and I felt like they were just escaping from work... so thanks... :/

  • I love these funnier vids you do Doctor Mike. Though one thing I will say is that grandfathers being switched is not the most outlandish of things. Just a couple months ago, we had to admit my grandmother for a fall. She was very disorientated and confused so my mother signed on as being responsible for her (for give me for not recalling the technical details such as titles). We went home and waited to hear back from the hospital, unable to stay due to Covid concerns. My mother gets a call at around 2 in the morning being told to come pick up my grandmother. She goes, waits in a designated area outside for her mother to be returned to us and a nurse wheels out some other little old lady and nearly walks away before my mother can stop her. They attempted to give her the wrong person and when she demanded to know where her mother was, concerned that they had lost her or something at this point, she learns that she isn't even in this hospital anymore. She was transferred to another facility without anyone being notified. Everything got straightened out and we got to see grandma again, but that's my story of how we nearly won a free grandma from the hospital.
