this is so pathetic.
We have a surgeon who's very political. He also has his little favorites. Why? because when he doesn't know his job, he comes running to the "non-physicians" for help. There are several of us who do not like his backstabbing, racist ways (he's greek, and hates minorities - but loves white people).
Billy Bob Diva Chimp is one of his "favorites". Both of them are narcissistic, ego-centric, insecure, immature, etc.
He came over today asking "Billy Bob" to help him. She had no idea what he wanted. I asked him to give us the patient's name to look up their prior images. Billy Bob was running behind him, but i pulled her back and said: "It's best to go in w/some history on this patient instead of walking into a train wreck".Saved her butt..
We came in, i helped set up. He was telling the staff that "Billy Bob" was "the best", and didn't say a word to me. No problem. I'm an apprentice.
When she was scanning the patient? she couldn't make heads or tails. When he wasn't in the room, i observed, until she came up on something and couldn't image it correctly.
I quietly gave the suggestions to help her through the exam. She wasn't really sure what to do some instances. Other areas, she was pretty confident.
When the surgeon came back in? "Billy Bob, you're the best!" She not once
said: "Femme helped out" or "Hey, we almost mistook an aneurysm for a hematoma, femme caught it.."
She just took it alll in. Right in front of the nurses, everyone.
When we were in private? she thanked me for my help..
