Strolling through the hallways of my memory, I came across some good and not-so-good recollections of my childhood and teenage years watching soap operas. It all started with a contemptuous conversation about SOAP notes, an acronym representing a widely used method of documentation for healthcare providers. A practice I bet only old-school nurses keep alive; the rest of them might be using some fancy software. 

In this episode, I share my vision on SOAP notes, what they are suitable for, and why I prefer to stick with the good old bullet points during a conversation with a patient. I also travel back to my childhood, remembering my experiences with ice cream and hospitals. We also take a closer look at soap operas' history in America, from radio to TV shows. 

In This Episode, You Will Learn:

  • It is good to take some things out of our chest (1:18)
  • What does SOAP stand for in SOAP notes (2:27)
  • From throat soar to undergo anesthesia at the Revere's Grover Manor Hospital (5:01)
  • A bit of soap operas' history (6:22)
