Worked yesterday with one of the most enthusiastic residents in the program. He's a good guy, but sometimes needs to be taken in small doses. I can't say anything bad about him really, he's a genuinely nice guy.

We were in the cardiac room... staffing is one on one in cardiac in our institution meaning we supervise only one cardiac case at a time. The second cardiac case of the day was supposed to be there already so they could get some invasive lines placed preoperatively. Usually the timing in such so that the most critical portion of the cardiac case is happening while I need to be surpervising those lines elsewhere. Anyway, came off of bypass in the OR, then finally then next patient was ready to get lined. After the lines were placed, I got back to the OR and they were about to transport the cardiac case to the ICU.

I told the resident to go to lunch (we give the breaks when we staff one on one) because I figured that i would get a chance for a couple more hours if he didn't go right away. He came back about 10 minutes early and met me in the ICU. Apparently he had bought me lunch and left it for me down in the anesthesia offices. Way beyond the call of duty... I suppose it's good for brownie points, but I don't believe he did it for that reason. I believe he did it just because he's a nice guy.

Glad there are still people out there like that.

It cannot have effect as a matter of fact, that's exactly what I suppose.
