Listening What if I really messed up one case physical!

After having ridiculous flashbacks about my exam this past week one really important thing came to mind....

What if I seriously messed up one physical exam...like should have performed a focused lung and heart exam but just auscultated because I didn't realize the ddx until after I left the room.

However my PN was very detailed and my ddx and diagnostic workup was on point.

I missed abdomen exam completely in a pt of GERD and passed with high performance. didn't do Vocal fremitus in Pneumonia suspected case. So considering this, you should be fine.

and if it makes you feel better, i also talked the whole pedia case on phone thinking the child is 3 yrs whereas it was 3 weeks; and i counseled a woman to quit smoking without even asking and she was not even a smoker. So chill and have fun. Had a psychosis case n she threw her bag at me(empty) saying i am there to hurt her.
