Hi everyone just need to vent and maybe some advice would be great
Please don't quote as I will delete after.
I'm studying nursing. .I'm in my 2nd year and am currently on placement.
I am in a specialty dept at a hospital.
Today one of the nurses I'm working with suggested I sit in with the doctor as there wasn't too much for us to do (he's actually one of the best specialists in this dept in Australia.
So I do with the drs permission.
So with in minutes of me sitting in with the doctor he asks me questions. .. (of course that's expected)
He asked me about a new medication which I'd never heard of.... I say I'm not sure as I hadn't heard about it
he then yells.
'You don't know anything.... you don't know a single f***ing medication... you're going to kill people you should be ashamed of yourself"'
I said I do know medications but I'm not familiar with this specialty as we haven't done anything on it at uni
Patient comes in... He asks me a similar question. .. I trying to answer the question
'You don't know... so don't pretend like you do... you don't know a f***ing thing....w*f do they teach you?"
He then starts asking me questions by using Latin riddles ..
I have no Idea so I say
I'm not sure what you mean
then in front of the patient he says
'Your not Australian your eastern European (i have an accent) you don't know a thing you have been living under a rock your whole life.
As well as many other things of similar nature
And these were shout at me in front of patients.
I actually feel extremely upset and I'm wondering if I should say something to my facilitator or just leave it be.
Anyone experienced something similar? I still have a week left at the venue and I feel quite unsure about my knowledge and abilities and confidence. Should I just toughen up.
