Day 24:

The difference between a resident and a medical student... A patient wanted something to make her mouth less dry during the day. The student looked in the patient's chart and noted that a lozenge was already on the med list orders. The student then proceeded to instruct the patient, "The next time your mouth gets dry, just ask the nurse for Cepastat. Understand? Cepastat. It's spelled C-E-P-A-S-T-A..."

At this point, the resident interrupted the student and suggested to the patient, "Just ask the nurse for something to make your mouth less dry."
