"Clinical...err....Third Eye. "

"Clinical...err....Third Eye. "
Virgilio F. De leon Jr. MD

In every hospital there is always that one person who can see things that no one else can. It usually the more experienced or what I believe is more in tuned with their surroundings who makes this observations.

One Elder Nurse in the ICU of a certain hospital in San Juan has the uncanny ability to know when someone is about to go into arrest. "Handa na tayo ng kit" she would usually be heard saying minutes before the actual code. Was she using her clinical eye in assessing patients? She was not. She was more likely using her third eye because she would say that before a patient does go to Arrest she sees a lot of other being hovering around a patient or peering through windows or curtains.

Rumor has it that she has a 100% accuracy in predicting a code. It might be one of those interesting nights if you were spending your duties with her.
