As well informed, I am currently doing my internship at Hosptial University Sains Malaysia (HUSM) at Biomedical Unit. Well my tasks usually need me to repair medical instruments like Syringe Pump, ECG, CTG, CCG, Slit Lamp, and Blood Pressure Monitor and if you are not informed yet, they all are electronic instruments so I am relevant to have my internship here. Hehe. Well repairing is not a big deal actually, nothing to proud of, but I am happy to get to know those medical instruments because they are not going into classes so, what a great chance to learn.
And super-ly happy, my tasks allow me to go through every corners in this hospital freely. I had visited operation theatre, wards, ICU, CCU, and most of them scared me a lot.
1. Operation theatre- I saw weakens people, so veggie, pity them.
2. Wards- Been to many kind of wards, I saw so many sick people every day. Usually I do pity them a lot. And sometimes I do disgust them, it can’t be help. Well, you know how sick people reacts, sometimes it annoys, sometimes it just so dirty, God, forgive for having this kind of feeling for these unfortunates. And this explains why I don’t study in medical fields, I can’t be with the sick people (I mean I can’t treat them the way they should).
3. ICU and CCU- I don’t know what differ them but seriously, it troubled me a lot after visiting this two places. It is so disturbing because people in these sections are too weak. I am so so so so so sorry to see them in that way, clinging on various kind of machines to support their life. Seriously if you don’t have a strong emotion, you’ll cry seeing them, especially the older patients. And I do realize people in these places didn’t stay for a long time. Today you go there you will see them, then the next morning they’re gone, only few stays. Then if you go again in the evening, somebody else lies at that bed, maybe that’s how ICU and CCU cycles work. I don’t know where they went.
Sometimes these visits also have a lot of funs. If you’re lucky, a lot of nice nurses will treat you well during the visits, young and old. Hehe. Sometimes when I went to psychiatry wards, I can’t help a lot my technician doing their works except trying to not to laughing at the psycho patients. Lol, they are funny a lot. And of course, I do pity these people because they’re not reacting they way they want. I pity the family most and at the same time salute them for continuing visits their ‘sick in the brain’ family though I know it is hard seeing the loved in that way.
And trust me, I am so happy to know all of the great members at Biomedical Unit, the staffs and other practical students, a very highly regards members.
