Well this is exciting @chesterfield_royal_hospital! Let’s hope capacity is increased in more hospitals to increase bed numbers and minimise Exit Block! #repost ・・・
It’s an exciting day for our Emergency Department team as the final phase of the development has been completed and becomes operational. A lot of work has taken place over the last year to increase the capacity of the department by 50%, introduce a purpose built area to stream emergency patients and redevelop the main ED entrance. Despite all of that work going on and a very harsh winter period, our ED team has continually come out as one of the country’s performers and they deserve a huge amount of credit for that. It is the entrance that has become the final piece of the jigsaw so, if you’re coming to our ED for treatment today, you can once again use the main department doors.
So I completed a rough couple of weeks at the ED as a medical intern. It was a really interesting and educational couple of weeks but they were exhausting. Needless to say, all you A&E doctors out deserve a whole lot of respect. Keep doing what y'all are doing. You guys do a wonderful job!! #emergencymedicine#doctors#eddoctor#respect#respect
Another good day, with bravery on the tube, waffle breakfast and grand plans. Then a whole day at a conference honing my grand plans. I have so much work ahead of me but I’m not scared of that. Right now though I am four and a half hours into my train ride home in the dark with rain pelting the window and a half hour walk awaiting me. Right now my grandest plan involves a hot water bottle and sleep #longday#goodday#dreambig#CESR#EDdoctor#whyiscornwallsobloodyfarawayfromeverywhere
And so I start my very last morning at my revision desk for a while. Tomorrow I head to London and the day after I will sit in an exam hall for five hours. I am so proud of how I have persevered, how I have sat myself down at this desk every single day almost for seven long months. I am so grateful to my husband who has totally taken up every little piece of slack I have left, for my kids for enduring being told “not now, Mummy’s right now” twenty times a day, to some amazing colleagues who have encouraged me, to @marybadassmeadows who helped me to realise what my goal really was and that I was able to achieve it. And hey, if I don’t pass them this time round, you’ll find me back at this desk pretty soon! #determined#doingthework#studyingmummy#EDdoctor

***Possible trigger warning; mention of weigh in (weight NOT mentioned)*** I know I’ve been MIA but I’m at the doctor for a med recheck right now and I decided to go against a blind weigh in for the first time in almost 5 years. I haven’t been working out lately so I was very nervous to do this, but I just went for it and was pleasantly surprised. The number wasn’t super low, but it wasn’t high either. It was just right! I never realized how petite I am, and I’m only now realizing this. It’s crazy getting to a point of being able to see myself accurately and not with overwhelming dysmorphia. I also got to see my ED doctor who I haven’t seen in 4 years and it’s crazy because I hated him back then and I love him now. Just reflecting on the past; it’s crazy how much one can change in a few years time! #ana#anamia#anarecovery#anorexia#anorexiarecovery#ed#edrecovery#eatingdisorder#edsoldier#edwarrior#recovery#recoverywarrior#health#healthy#food#foodie#doctor#eddoctor#medicine#timehealswounds
In surgery, the healing process begins with a cut, an incision, the tearing of flesh. We have to damage the healthy flesh in order to expose the unhealthy. It feels cruel and against common sense, but it works. You risk exposure for the sake of healing, and when it’s over, once the incision has been closed, you wait. You wait and hope that your patient will heal. That you haven’t in fact, just made everything worse
The calm in the middle of the storm. Dr. Jerry Punch waits patiently to interview Alexander Rossi following this year's #indy500 For those not familiar with this multitalented commentator just see this quick blurb from his #wikipage In 1988, in two separate incidents, he helped with the rescue efforts after the wrecks of Rusty Wallace and Don Marmor. In the case of Wallace's front-stretch crash at Bristol Motor Speedway, Punch happened to be on pit road at the time, and as a result, was the first person on the scene before the rescue crew could be scrambled. Punch's medical training proved pivotal, as Wallace was initially unconscious following the crash. Punch revived Wallace, who was able to start the following night's race with only minor injuries, driving for about half the race before giving his seat up to a relief driver. Wallace now works with Punch in ESPN's coverage of NASCAR.
Punch is also credited with helping to save Ernie Irvan following a practice crash at Michigan International Speedway in August 1994. Punch also had aided injured pit crew members on pit road in several races in the 1990s.
