Excellent article about patients dying and how we rush around, not allowing ourselves to react. Sorry about all the death talk, but I'm sure you can understand why this is on my mind. Although, as my fellow psych intern said yesterday, why didn't everyone get upset when my patient died? It's normal to be upset, normal to cry, so why do we push it down so much? I'm so glad she's on the service with me--it would be a lot worse if I had no one there who knows exactly what it's like to be a 3-week intern on a busy neurology service where everyone else has had at least 1 year of medicine.
