The department's mortality & morbidity review or fondly known as M&M is an intense weekly activity that no MO (medical officer) likes.

Supposedly its intent is to highlight cases that shouldn't have ended up in mortuary. Just face it, people die.. and we can't stop that from happening. But the M&M is never about that. It's not the WHAT - but merely the HOW is what gonna screw the MO's asses.

Really.. what supposed to be an educating session for the junior docs i.e the HO (house officer), turns to get carried away into a court drama session at times.

"Are you saying that you didn't check up on that patient for the second time that night?" the professor asks the MO 'in charge' of that case.

".. but.. but I was busy.. with another patient in different ward" the young man looks like a pale moonlight.

".. not an excuse.. wrong answer...I expect.. " the professor losing his patience.

"You want answer?" a tone of irritation building up in the young man's voice.

"I want the truth!" the 60 year old professor stands up.

"YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH" the MO hit the table with his fist.

-- a cengkerik make a sound in the lecture hall, and HOMO (HO-turning MO) just peed in her pants.
