Chapter 47: Dr. Wang, with tears streaming down his face!
Lin Feng didn’t pay much attention to Dr. Wang’s emotions. The three of them worked together to handle the situation. For patients with cervical spine injuries, someone must support the neck and carefully lift them onto a stretcher. Every movement must be done with utmost care. The middle-aged woman was quite heavy, and Lin Feng and the two 120 doctors were sweating profusely.
“Kid, don’t go! Let’s go to the hospital together. I don’t believe in superstitions!” Dr. Wang fixed his gaze on Lin Feng.
Lin Feng decided to comply with what Dr. Wang had said, waiting for an opportunity to show Lin Feng’s incompetence later.
20 minutes later, they arrived at City First Hospital’s Emergency Department.
Dr. Zhang Yuan, who saw Lin Feng come and go, looked puzzled. “Didn’t you just finish your shift? Why are you back again?”
“I took a patient…” Lin Feng pointed to the woman on the stretcher. “Quick, prepare the requisition form for an MRI! Consider cervical spine injury with spinal cord damage due to external trauma!”
Dr. Zhang was shocked. He had heard of such a condition. It was rare but mentioned in case studies. He looked troubled.
“In our Emergency Department, we can handle general injuries, but cervical spine injuries with spinal cord damage? We need to call the orthopedic department, which must be a deputy chief or above. Aren’t they off duty now? Should I inform the Medical Affairs Office to call an orthopedic specialist?”
Each specialty had its own expertise, and in medicine, it was like facing a mountain when dealing with a different specialty. Outpatient departments looked down upon the Emergency Department because they knew a little about everything but weren’t experts.
The Emergency Department could only provide temporary treatment when faced with challenging cases. A spinal cord injury like this, at least a Grade 3 difficulty level, was something the Emergency Department couldn’t handle.
Qiao Hanru was in a state of panic, sweat pouring down her forehead. With her mother suddenly paralyzed, the orthopedic department already off duty, and the Emergency Department unable to handle the situation, Qiao Hanru was at a loss for what to do.
Lin Feng remained calm and composed, calmly giving instructions, “Alright, listen to me. Sign the consent form for the necessary tests. I’m still in my internship period, so I can’t authorize them myself.”
Lin Feng: If I didn’t have the authority to issue a medical referral, would I even bother talking to you?
Dr. Wang from the 120 team was stunned!
“So, you’re just a rookie doctor without the qualifications to see patients?”
“Do you dare to challenge me?”
Dr. Wang rolled his eyes and said to Qiao Hanruo, “Miss, let me advise you. Don’t waste time with him. Hurry up and go to the Orthopedic Hospital. They specialize in this and are more reliable than an intern doctor like him.”
In the eyes of Dr. Wang, who had been practicing medicine for 20 years, intern doctors were inexperienced!
Resident doctors were also a dime a dozen!
Qiao Hanruo hesitated as well. Her mother had already been in excruciating pain and on the verge of unconsciousness. She couldn’t negotiate.
Should she trust Lin Feng or not?
Lin Feng said calmly, “It’s up to you. If you want to transfer to the Orthopedic Hospital, it’s fine. But the sooner your mother has the surgery for her cervical spine paralysis, the better the outcome will be.”
“Okay! I trust you!”
After hesitation, Qiao Hanruo thought about how Lin Feng could detect the problem with a touch, while Dr. Wang couldn’t. The difference in skill level was evident.
Lin Feng looked at Zhang Yuan.
Zhang Yuan advised, “I’m telling you, spinal cord injuries are not a minor matter. If you’re not careful, you might be unable to save the person and even endanger yourself.”
He genuinely valued Lin Feng. He feared something happening to Lin Feng and ruining his medical career. After all, in today’s tense doctor-patient relationship, even basic trust was hard to come by. One medical accident could end the career of even a renowned doctor, let alone an intern like Lin Feng. He spoke out of goodwill.
Lin Feng said, “Don’t worry. I’ve read several books on spinal cord injury surgeries and watched teaching videos. I’m confident!” Zhang Yuan spewed out a mouthful of blood.
So, you dare to perform surgeries just by watching videos and reading books?
This spinal cord injury is at least a Grade 3 surgery!
(The highest difficulty level is Grade 4.)
However, since Lin Feng had been successful so many times, Zhang Yuan, with the idea of “there’s no harm in checking,” issued requisitions for a CT scan and an MRI, and asked Qiao Hanruo to register at the emergency department, pay the fees, and undergo the examinations.
Doctor’s mindset: Whether there’s something wrong or not, it’s best to conduct a thorough examination! The more detailed, the better! The more tests, the better!
The 120 team was only responsible for transporting the patient to the hospital, and once they arrived, it was no longer their responsibility.
“No hurry!” Dr. Wang sneered by the side.
A while later, Qiao Hanruo ran back.
With a sweeping gesture, Lin Feng took charge without hesitation, remotely directing Dr. Wang and his apprentice.
Dr. Wang: “…”
“Of course, we’re going to take the patient to the Radiology Department for an MRI!”
Lin Feng glared, “What else would you two be doing? Just freeloading?”
Dr. Wang’s face flushed with anger.
Why did I stay here? Being bossed around by him?
Dr. Wang vowed in his heart that he would give Lin Feng a good face-slapping to let out his frustration once the diagnostic results were out.
