Medical students are useless. We just are - adding extra work to resident's daily to do lists, getting in the way during procedures and rounds, and having to be accounted for on a regular basis all leads to a rather mundane and useless person.
Yet for all the tomfoolery that goes on with training med students the majority of residents/ attendings/ nurses are nice and considerate to make you not feel completely ridiculous. Most. A nurse from the L&D ward was down in the ICU yesterday and she brought with her the mentality that I hated on that floor: get out of my way you useless piece of shit!
Twice I was attacked by her for just looking in a patient's chart (which I had to defend by stating it was my patient, so back off), I witnessed her badger the radiology tech for HIPPA violations since she was walking around with patient labels on her sleeves (which most people do when they're actually, you know, up and moving to get their work done and not sitting behind a PC all day), and several times this behemoth of a woman got after the residents. Once she even went so far as to tell my senior "You need to get off my computer and get back onto yours!" The resident yielded, laughing outwardly at the farce this woman was making of her position, and I smiled as the nurse pulled up her important work - shoe shopping online.
