New Caledonia, SD – In an utterly contemptible failure of medical competence, attending Internal Medicine physician, Jim Glissendur, MD, FACP, forgot to make a stop for breakfast food for his team when meeting them for morning rounds after their overnight call.
Completely unaware of the depraved foolhardiness of his actions, he walked into a room that was soon simmering with insatiable rage.
“Who is this guy?! At this point, I could care less how much he teaches us,” tweeted Senior Resident, Jessica Stevens, DO. “I’m hungry and I don’t want to hear another word about the evaluation of hyponatremia.”
“I’m beginning to wonder if he’s even a human being at all. It’s sick, really,” whispered intern Tim Unnter, MD to his fellow intern as Dr. Glissendur gave a chalk-talk on antibiotic coverage.
The kind, gentle way that he shepherded them through a discussion of the complex overnight patient admissions was no replacement for a tub of cream cheese and a cardboard box of bagels.
“I hope I never see him again. It’s despicable. I don’t even want a letter of recommendation from this guy,” said senior medical student, Jill Walston, who is re-thinking her choice of specialty. “I’m not really sure internal medicine is for me anymore.”
