A Doctor For A Day


Did you respond to my Lilbookworm Facebook Fanpage shoutout on on July 18 about this event?  We missed the 1st run in July & we were so glad that Mt Elizabeth Novena Hospital ran it for the 2nd time in Aug.  I registered AJ for the 10th Aug.

This is not 'ma-in ma-in' ('play play' in Malay).  This is for real!  Oh well, at least the place & the equipment they used were real, not toys!  KidZania & BabyBoss would not be able to come that close!

Dr AJ Lee getting ready.

All gathered for a short briefing

The first room they entered was the General Practitioner room where they had hands-on on how to measure one's temperature & blood pressure, albeit, any-o-how.



The next room they went in was the Accident & Emergency room where they learnt how to 'make a dead person alive again' & bandage someone.  Yes, we had to explain to AJ the difference between 'resuscitation' & 'resurrection' after that.  :D


AJ volunteered to be the patient.

The following room was Nursing room.  The children got to carry the babies (thank God they were not real babies) & change their wet diapers (the diapers were really wet).


Be careful with the way you handle the baby, Dr AJ Lee!

The 2nd last room was the Operating Theatre, where they had a Mr Smoke, who smoked too much & needed an operation.



The last room was Pharmacy. But no dispensing of medicine, they only changed the robe & took a group photo.




After an hour's work, Dr AJ Lee was presented a certificate & a real stethoscope as souvenir.

Overall, this was a good experience for AJ & I must also commend that the programme was really well organised & smoothly ran. Thumbs up to MNH!
