The Death of Ivan Ilych
The Death of Ivan Ilych should be required reading for all who wish to go into medicine in any form. For that matter it should be required reading for all of humanity. No one who reads it carefully will ever be quite the same inside again. Try it out. ........ Saw somebody pass out in person for the first time ever the other night. I was putting in a femoral line during a near code, and a pharmacy student just kind of drifted backwards, like in slow motion as soon as I got a flash of blood. Crazy! Luckily all the spectators caught her.
