Great Doctor Ling Ran Chapter 1022At two o'clock in the morning, Lu Wenbin got out of bed, walked into the bathroom groggily, and washed his face before he climbed into his big bathtub, which was 22 to 26 feet in length. Then, he exhaled long and hard.
It was a newly-purchased smart bathtub, and its brand name was a bit of a mouthful. However, as the most expensive kind in the mall, its effects were very good. Over the past few months, Lu Wenbin used it to wake himself up.
After bathing for a while, Lu Wenbin struggled to come out of the tub. He took a quick shower, then went to the gym next door to begin his morning workout.
Half an hour later, Lu Wenbin's mind was completely awake. He got ready in the gym's shower room before he made his way to the kitchen on the ground floor and started his routine preparation of ingredients.
Since his pork trotter business got on track, Lu Wenbin rarely and could not control the source and production of every pork trotter.
However, Lu Wenbin was not willing to pass the preparation of ingredients to other people.
He prepared the ingredients in his own kitchen and turned his own dining room into the storeroom to mix the ingredients every day before he allowed his staff to take it out.
Lu Wenbin had initially gotten used to such a lifestyle. Then, Ling Ran suddenly decided to give him double the chances to be the chief surgeon
Lu Wenbin was now forced to arrive at the hospital before four in the morning, which was an hour earlier than the past. Then, he needed to meet up with the anesthetist, Zuo Cidian, the patient, and the patient's family members. After that, he had to ask Ling Ran for advice and make the last confirmations
Lu Wenbin was only able to last until now due to the pleasure of being the chief surgeon.
However, to be honest, the support given to him by that pleasure was waning.
The happiest time of being a chief surgeon was when a doctor had just started. The more times a doctor worked as a chief surgeon, the more it felt like any other normal task. Additionally, responsibilities and pressure would also become greater.
"Old Lu, you're here." Ma Yanlin's arrival time was about the same as Lu Wenbin's, and that meant he could have an extra hour of sleep.
Lu Wenbin stared at Ma Yanlin's indistinct dark circles with great jealousy because that indicated he had enough sleep. He changed his attire while he asked, "You've had your number of surgeries increased too, right?"
One good thing about the hospital was that it had every single facility, and if the hospital's grade was high enough, its conditions would be good as well.
Theoretically, a doctor could live in the hospital for 365 days a year. There were places to eat and sleep, and of course, when he was sick, he did not need to compete for a hospital bed. As long as he was willing to write his own medical record, he could lay on whichever hospital bed he desired. Even when he wanted to make love with his wife and have a baby, it could all be done in the hospital, so it was extremely convenient.
The operating area in Yun Hua Emergency Medical Center was connected to the incomplete ICU. Its interior had been renovated and improved, while its internal space had been increased. The facilities including the dressing room and shower room had also been improved as per Ling Ran's request.
The members of Ling Ran's treatment group were not the only ones who liked to go in and out of the dressing room. Even the doctors in the Emergency Medical Center also liked to go to the dressing room now.
After sweating, staining their clothes with blood, having s*x, or working overtime at night, taking a bath and changing into a new attire was the most comfortable thing they could experience.
For single men like Lu Wenbin and married men like Ma Yanlin, the hospital's operating theater was more like a cultural medium for huge babies (surgeons).
If they did not need to attend matchmaking sessions, they could just wear their scrubs all day and night. Then they could put on their white coats occasionally and hang around until it was Chinese New Year or other festivals before they changed into their own clothes again.
Compared with Lu Wenbin, Ma Yanlin stayed much longer in the hospital's Operating Area.
He was still renting a house now. After joining Ling Ran's treatment group, Ma Yanlin moved from staying in a rented house to a house in an urban village to a resettlement residential area before moving to a high-quality bachelor apartment (even though he was married), but his bathroom still could not accommodate a bathtub. Besides, instead of wasting his hot water, he preferred taking a bath in the hospital.
Ma Yanlin took off his clothes very quickly before he stepped into the shower room and shouted, "It's increased to four every day. I feel like I can do it until the end of the world."
Ma Yanlin seemed to be pretending to be pitiful.
If Ling Ran performed the same surgery, he might complete it in a few dozen minutes. However, if it was Ma Yanlin, he might need two to three hours...
From that perspective, there was not much difference between a doctor performing surgery and a student working on exercises. Students who were good at a subject would more accurately solve the exercises at a faster speed. Meanwhile, those who were not familiar with the knowledge required for the exercises would take a longer time to solve the questions, plus their accuracy would be lower.
A clinician's skills were generally trained through clinical practices.
The phrase, "perseverance and consistency" was very suitable for clinicians. With the exclusion of the time they took to study, they would still need an additional twenty years to get the hang of being a clinician.
As for Ma Yanlin and Lu Wenbin, they were currently improving at an incredibly quick rate.
"I've also done four today." Lu Wenbin sighed emotionally. "I never thought that we would perform four surgeries in a day."
Regardless of which hospital, having its surgeon perform four surgeries a day was not considered an easy task. Slightly complicated surgeries that were up to Level 3 could even take an entire day to complete.
For resident doctors such as Lu Wenbin and Ma Yanbin, serving as the chief surgeon for four surgeries in a row still made them feel both tense and proud, even if the surgeries were M-Tang technique surgeries and Achilles tendon repairs, which they were the most familiar with.
"Are you guys ready yet?" Wang Jia rushed over in a hurry, glanced at the shower room in disgust, and said, "Control the time of the first two surgeries well. Doctor Ling will be performing the surgeries with you."
"Huh? How?" Lu Wenbin had just turned around to show off his back muscles, but he nearly sprained his waist.
Wang Jia seriously answered, "He'll be working as the first assistant for you guys in turn. It'll be your first and second surgeries today. So, who's going first, and who's going later?"
"Is he crazy?" Lu Wenbin could not believe his ears. "Doctor Ling can't even finish all of his own surgeries."
"Doctor Ling said that he wants to help you guys improve your skills." As Wang Jia spoke, her voice grew nasally. "Doctor Ling is so good. He doesn't scold or beat you guys, and he also doesn't set unspoken rules for you Now, he's even using his own surgery time to improve your skills. When you go back to your hometown this year, you should go and thank God for your blessings."
Ma Yanlin quickly dried his body. He then put on his scrubs and stepped out of the shower room. "Previously, we prayed to God when our family went out to the sea."
"Your prayers have paid off." Wang Jia pursed her lips before she urged them to hurry up with an answer. "Who's going first?"
Lu Wenbin and Ma Yanlin glanced at each other, and sparkles shone in their eyes. They raised their hands at the same time.
Everyone knew that a doctor was in his best condition when he performed the first surgery, especially when it came to newbie doctors like them. Performing surgery for two to three hours was considered normal. While they did not know if Ling Ran would feel tired by the time the second surgery rolled around, they knew that whoever the chief surgeon was may already feel exhausted.
In that case, if they wanted to learn with the highest efficiency, it was obvious that they needed to learn during the first surgery.
"Go and get ready in your own operating theater. I'll ask Doctor Ling to go to the operating theater of the one who's starting first." It was only then that Wang Jia pulled all her tricks and proudly broke into a maternal smile. "Complete your surgery faster. We want to clock off work earlier."
"How is it possible to clock off work earlier? Even if we finish these surgeries earlier, we still need to proceed with our next surgery." Lu Wenbin laughed.
Wang Jia glared at him. "Do you really want me to make it clear? Everyone wants to be done with your surgeries earlier so that they can go to Doctor Ling's."
The air conditioning seemed colder at that moment.
Lu Wenbing smiled in embarrassment. "If we operate slower, our labor intensity will also be lower, right?"
"Doctor Ling completes a 30 RMB surgery in forty minutes, but you guys complete it in three hours. Do you think we're idiots?" Wang Jia increased the volume of her voice and made the resident doctors speechless for some time.
When you were not as good as others, it was really hard to speak for yourself.
"I'll buy milk tea." Lu Wenbin immediately changed his mind.
"Doctor Ling has already bought milk tea." Wang Jia snorted and wore a little smile on her lips. She then waved her hand in a show of magnanimity and said, "You guys don't usually treat us to things, so consider yourselves to be under our debt."
Lu Wenbin wanted to say that he was rich, but Ma Yanlin had already thanked Wang Jia profusely without any hesitation right then.
Wang Jia smiled and nodded. Lu Wenbin and Ma Yanlin were considered resident doctors whom the hospital had high hopes for despite the fact that they had not been promoted yet. This meant that once they became attending physicians in the future, it would not be easy to curry favor to them.
Even young nurses would have relatives and friends who would come over for treatment on a regular basis. At that time, if they did not gain their favor, they might reject them when the nurses needed them.
Lu Wenbin and Ma Yanlin were still like junior high schoolers who did not completely understand the thoughts of the girls in their class. After they sent Wang Jia away, they looked at each other, and the flames of rivalry burned in their eyes.
They could not guess the girls' thoughts, but they knew the development within Ling Ran's treatment group very clearly. As of now, the current period could be considered a time in which if they were just one step ahead of the others, they could form a chain reaction that would allow them to surpass others later on.
Whoever was in the position of the chief surgeon and whoever obtained the first opportunity would get more resources in the future.
Ma Yanlin and Lu Wenbin lowered their heads at the same time to tighten the drawstrings on their pants while they simulated the surgical procedure in their minds.
