Beward the Ides of March!

Haven't been hit with anything too bad so far, but the night is still young....

House, MD What the hell is going on with Foreman?! He just walks into the patient's room and says, "All our tests were negative. You're fine now. You can go home." But he doesn't even stop to ask if she can move her leg? What kind of nonsense is that?

But he doesn't even stop to ask if she can move her leg? What kind of nonsense is that?

Fairly typical for an inexperienced doctor, actually. They have a tendency to get caught up in the test results and forget that they're dealing with a whole person, not just a group of test results.

Heh. The kind of nonsense that is contrived to make a dramatic build up to that scream... that made my dogs howl.

I found the episode distressing on many fronts. Strangely, I was much more distressed by House injecting BOTOX into that guy's LARYNX without any consent or any diagnostic tests than I was about his lying by ommission to the transplant board.

Did he even, um, use an alcohol swab before he injected the guy?

I know! I was thinking, "man, he's gonna get sued BIG TIME for that." cause you know that's what would have happened in real life. :)

Yep. I'll bet that scene makes it into one of those If X TV Show Were Real nitpicking books, like the one they did for ER.
