Alurian Medical Code of Conduct
Principality Of Aluria posted a topic in Elven Realms & CultureAlurian General Medical Clinic -Code of Conduct- 19th Of The First Seed Year 54 Of The Second Age Medical Personnel: Medical Director: The medical director is the head of anything and everything medical related to the clinic of Aluria, being appointed by the prince/princess of Aluria through showing the prince/princess the ability to lead and show they’re of great knowledge within the medical field. They are tasked with the ability to maintain the clinic which means upholding the values and rules of the code of conduct , appointing a surgeon general to help the upkeep of the clinic. The director is able to rewrite the code with approval of the prince/princess, and revise it at any time. Surgeon General: The surgeon general is the second in command under the medical director, being appointed by the medical director, the surgeon general’s duties are to help maintaining the clinic and the code of conduct being the acting medical director if they are away, hiring those who educate the young medics of today, the surgeon general is tasked with giving the medical exam one needs to pass to become a practitioner of the clinic. Deputy Surgeon General: The third in command to the medical director who is appointed by the surgeon general and being approved by the medical director. The job of this role is to help both teach those under them and hire those who wish to teach. Finally, they are also able to help the surgeon general in the duty of giving and ‘grading’ the medical exam one needs to become a practitioner. Chief Practitioner: The chief practitioner is the role one ‘lucky’ practitioner get’s for a term of four years (four IRL weeks). They have shown that they are capable of being more than just a normal practitioner within the clinic and can handle the extra duties of assisting in the education of the apprentices and average practitioners. The chief is also able to assign and re-assign medical cases according to the practitioner's skill set. Practitioner: A medic that has completed the education and passed the medical exam given by clinic management, therefore receiving their license. They may now practice medicine within the Principality of Aluria. Apprentice: A medic that has not completed the education and has not passed the exam given by the clinic management to receive their medical license. Though they are allowed to assist in cases with someone who is a practitioner or more to gain more knowledge on the practice. Auxiliary Practitioner: Auxiliary practitioners are the nurses/midwives, combat medics and those medics that have not devoted themselves to being within Aluria as a practitioner or have skills that most do not have as a practitioner such as being a fulltime midwife or nurse. They have been approved by the surgeon general in order to practice medicine within the walls and lands of the principality. Medical Curriculum: Current Used Medical Curriculum (Click It!) The medical curriculum of the Alurian General Medical Clinic has been given to the medical director from the surgeon general of Haense. Though we are able to use the paper based curriculum gifted to us by our allies in the northern parts. The clinic management has approved it best to only have your teachers based around the curriculum and it does not have to be generally exactly what the pages say within this post above. The management finds it best for those teaching to teach their students the easiest way possible… Which is how the student has told their teacher they wished to be taught such as, very hands on, book work, and or private or group lessons. Medical Licensing: Obtaining Your Exam: When the apprentice has found themself wishing to become a full practitioner, there shall be a meeting with the surgeon general or deputy surgeon general on if both the apprentice and teacher think the apprentice is ready. Then they shall move on to discuss when the apprentice shall take the exam. The Written Exam: Once the apprentice and the teacher have completed talking to one of the general’s of the clinic management they shall forth to begin the written medical exam. This exam is to mainly cover some questioning of the code of conduct and then theoretical events where medical knowledge is needed. The Practical Exam: Once the apprentice has then passed the written exam they shall move on to the practical exam, this exam will be given on a cadaver (a deceased body, meant for studies and educational purposes). The surgeon or deputy surgeon general will harm the cadaver, give detail and then allow the apprentice to begin the healing of the body. This will demonstrate to the exam giver that the apprentice is able to handle things that are randomly thrown to them, showing the skills to be a practitioner. Licensing: Once the apprentice has then passed both of these exams they are finally qualified for the role of practitioner they may practice freely within the principality. The rules of the the licensing are the same as those of the north which are the following in our own words: Should any apprentice practice without getting a license, they are at risk for all wounds caused and will be brought under the eye of the court for malpractice. Should any member of the clinic management practice without a license or have gotten their license renounced, they will be prohibited from practicing medicine inside the Realm of Aluria and in case of getting caught one will be brought under the eye of the court for malpractice. Should the medical director, surgeon general or deputy surgeon general lose their license, they will be deprived of their position, restricted from practicing within Aluria, and brought before the court for malpractice and gross incompetence. Patient Care: Patients may refuse treatment so long as they are fully conscious when the attending practitioner arrives. Only the clinic management (Medical director ---> Deputy Surgeon General) may overrule this should they deem it necessary ! Another descendant or next of kin may NOT refuse on behalf of the patient if said patient is unconscious Practitioners may NOT refuse to treat a patient of the citizens or allies of the Principality of Aluria unless the following has happened to the medic or patient, which is able to be overruled by the medical director Have assaulted (verbally or physically) the medic in question Have disregarded previous orders from a practitioner or higher ! If the patient gets severely crippled, wounded, or dies due to the practitioner refusing to treat the patient, the practitioner cannot be held liable if the patient falls under any of the above mentioned categories. Morgue Procedures: Morgue Entry: Morgue is and should always be a place of peace, and respect. Meaning those who have the right to enter the morgue are the following: The medical director, the surgeon general, the deputy surgeon general, and those who have been approved by the medical director to enter the morgue. Proper Care of Corpses and Cadavers: The proper care of the clinics corpses and cadavers should be upheld by the Surgeon general and their deputy. When working with the bodies they shall be stored up to twelve months before cremated. This is to prevent a disease or infection from breaking out outside the clinic, along with this adds to the fact of the limit of time a family has to receive a body from the clinic, for possibly proper burial or other reasons. Cremation: Once a corpse has been sitting within the morgue for the twelve months the clinic shall hold the right to begin the cremation process. Reporting: Basic Medical Reports: To keep track of patients and who works on them, after an operation a practitioner should feel out a medical report and hand it to the medical director. Depending on the times of Aluria there will be pay according to the number of operations. Morgue Reports: Reports are written by those working the morgue at the time on the person who has undergone autopsy, then being given to the surgeon general who will then hand it over to the medical director, so they may have the report in case a problem arises within the morgue.

Medical Roleplay: how to make it fun-er?
latte posted a topic in MiscellanyHi guys, it’s latte back again. I know i made a status update asking the same question if medical roleplay was fun- but I was wondering, what would medical roleplay fun for you guys, either as a patient or the medic in question ?? I'm simply trying to gauge at the community's thoughts, as well as to most likely incorperate some ideas within the future. I personally like when the medic involves the patient within the roleplay , and asks them questions instead of just straightforward doing a couple of healing emotes then done, making it more engaging for the person on the other side of the screen, opposed to just going afk. I also think tying your style in within the sort of nation you're in would make for interesting results as well, like if (and they might) Yong Ping had its own historical-cultural medical techniques opposed to Haense medicine. I just think standardizing everything and seeing the same sort of medical roleplay everywhere is boring . At the opposite end of the spectrum, I don't think people should rp there being medical miracles [lest alchemy] , or being 21st century doctors. It's just unrealistic and unplausable. idk just my thoughts, you thoughts?
Kemobrown posted a topic in Characters & CulturesOverview: Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice originating from the Far East, passed down by the Li-Ren’s great ancestors. It requires solid knowledge of the flow of ‘qi’ or energy in the body, usually alongside the nervous system in channels called ‘meridians’. By inserting sterilised silver needles into particular channels, one can redirect nervous sensations or hormonal imbalances within the body. It is important to note however, that acupuncture itself cannot completely treat any ailments, it is best to accompany it with dietary or lifestyle changes. Tools: To administer acupuncture, one must have a set of thin, silver needles. Similar to sewing needles, the point must be strong but exceedingly thin, with a sturdy but light wooden end to enable easy insertion into the body such that the patient will not feel much sensation. The needles must be silver as silver is a metal that can draw out impurities or poisons within the body. One must cleanse and sterilise the needles regularly, whether through flame or through strong alcohol. Sanitation is crucial to practice as substances from previous treatments may still linger on the needles if not tended to properly. Channels: There are 14 main channels in the body that dominate energy flow and the nervous system. Each channel has a major point which can be triggered to treat certain ailments, as seen in the following below: Large Intestine Channel: Hegu This point is located on the back side of the hand between the thumb and first finger. The primary use of this point is to relieve pain and treat inflammatory and feverish diseases. Pressing upon it is particularly known to help with headaches. Lung Channel: Lieque This point is located above the wrist on the inside of the arm. It is used to treat several disorders of the upper body, including respiratory disorders, sore throat, facial paralysis and wrist conditions. Stomach Channel: Zusanli This point is located on the front of the leg, just below the knee. It is helpful for digestive disorders. Research shows that using this point results in positive effects in treating anemia, immune deficiency, indigestion and diarrhea. Spleen Channel: Sanyinjiao This point is located on the inner side of the leg just above the ankle. It is well known for treating hormonal disorders (such as irregular menstruation) and other disorders dealing with reproduction and general genital health. Gallbladder Channel: Fengchi This point is located at the base of the skull where it joins the neck in back. It is used in the treatment of acute disorders, such as the common cold, influenza, headache, neck pain and fever. In addition, it lowers blood pressure. Liver Channel: Taichong The point is located on the top of the foot, between the first and second toes. It is used to balance emotional energy, helps regulate menstruation, to reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol. Pericardium Channel: Neiguan This point is located on the inner arm, just above the wrist. This channel is useful for cardiac disorders, such as heart palpitation and chest pains. It is also useful for nausea, vomiting, spasms and convulsions. Heart Channel: Shenmen This point is located on the outer side of the wrist. It is used in the treatment of a variety of mental disorders, such as insomnia, agitation and fatigue. Urinary Bladder Channel: Weizhong This point is located at the back of the knee. It is utilized in the treatment of back pain, hip impairment, muscular cramps, leg pain, and abdominal pain. Kidney Channel: Taixi This point is located just behind the inner ankle. It is used for disorders in several areas of the body, including sore throat, deafness, dizziness, lower back pain and can help or hinder bedroom activities. Triple Burner Channel: Waiguan This point on the channel is located on the outer side of the arm, above the wrist. It is mainly used in treatment of disorders along the pathway of this meridian, that is, of the fingers, hand, arms, neck, ears, cheek, and top of the head. Small Intestine Channel: Houxi This point is located on the side of the hand, below the little finger. It is used for treating general stiffness, seizures, night sweats and fevers. Governing Vessel: Baihui This point is located at the top of the head. It is traditionally applied in the treatment for headache, vertigo, ringing in the ears and nasal obstruction. It is best used in accompaniment with the Kidney Channel. Theory / Capabilities: Before administering acupuncture, always clean your patient’s body by wiping them down, whether through rice alcohol or water. When inserting the needles into the patient’s points, one must take extra care not to insert directly upon the nerve endings as doing so would block energy and nerve transmission into said areas. Instead, when promoting sensation or hormonal surge in the general area, insert the needle a little towards the outside of the body from the point, as this will stimulate the flow of ‘energy’ towards the desired treatment area. Treatment Examples: [!] The following only intend to act as examples of treatment. Not all the herbs listed in the prescriptions exist rply but it’s just an example for people to get a better understanding of how treatment would work. Treatment of a Common Cold: - Get the patient to suck on a slice of raw ginger whilst you administer acupuncture. - Warm up the room so that the patient will break out into sweat. - Cleanse the body. - Insert needles into the Large Intestinal, Lung Channel, Gallbladder, and the Governing Channel. - Leave the needles in for around 15 minutes before taking them out. - Prescribe the patient ginger, ginseng, honey and kumquat tea and encourage drinking the concoction every day until their cold gets better. Make sure that the patient is also adequately warm throughout this process. Treatment of Headache: - Cleanse the patient’s body. - Begin inserting the acupuncture needles into the Governing, Large Intestine, Gallbladder, and Heart Channels. - Leave needles in until the patient begins to feel less tension/stiffness in the area before taking them out. - Prescribe patient with a mild, diluted Frostvine salve along the area of pain for external application and some rejuvenating Mandragora tea for consumption. Treatment of Respiratory Diseases: - Air out the room first and free it from any lingering dust. - Cleanse the patient’s body. - Begin inserting acupuncture needles into the Lung, Pericardium, Heart, and Governing Channels. - Leave needles in for 15 minutes before taking them out. - As this is a long-lasting lifestyle disease, encourage the patient to come for routine acupuncture treatments. The patient should also maintain a clean house free of dust at all times and keep a light diet and avoid oily, fatty foods as well as excessive indulging in red meats. Treatment of Menstrual pains and irregularities: - Warm up the room so that the patient is comfortably warm, but not sweating. - Cleanse the patient’s body. - Begin inserting acupuncture needles into the Urinary, Kidney, Liver, and Spleen Channels. - Leave the acupuncture needles in before beginning to massage the patient’s pained areas with a heated ceramic ball, careful not to burn the patient. - Finish the massage and take out the needles after an hour’s time. - Prescribe the patient with a herbal concoction of Mandragora, Desert Berry, ginseng, ginger, and pomegranate. Inform the patient to keep their body warm at all times during the menstrual period, and eat red meat, in particular pig’s liver cooked in rice wine and ginger. - Encourage the patient to attend regular acupuncture and massage sessions until the irregularities ease. [!] Well performed treatment over a prolonged period can help women recover from miscarriages within reasonable bounds. Treatment of Indigestion/ Food poisoning / ingested poisons: - Cleanse the patient’s body and ready a nearby pot for the patient to vomit into. - Feed the patient ground and boiled Goblin’s Ivy with Alabaster Leaf, then induce them into vomiting. - Once the patient has vomited out all the contents, insert needles into the Pericardium, Stomach and Kidney channels. - Wait until any poisonous substances have been drawn out by the silver. If no poison was ingested, leave the needles in until the patient feels the nausea subside. - Prescribe the patient with Mandragora tea afterwards and encourage them to adhere to a lighter diet, refraining from oily, fatty foods as well as excessive wine. REDLINES: Acupuncture itself CANNOT heal any ailments, it has to be used in tandem with other treatments, such as herbal remedies or lifestyle changes. Acupuncture is NOT a miracle cure and often needs repeated treatments in order for successful treatment. Acupuncture can only enhance or take away nervous sensation or balance out hormones slightly in targetted areas each session. You can damage someone’s nerves on purpose with acupuncture but it has to be done over time and the damage has to be gauged by a roll to prevent powergaming (esp. in the case of nervous breakdown). PURPOSE (OOCLY): I’m surprised acupuncture hasn’t been done in an official capacity but I just thought adding acupuncture to LotC would make medical rp much more interesting. So far medical rp is a one-off rp experience but with acupuncture you can have repeat or regular patients, try combining western and eastern medical practices back from medieval ages, and facilitate a more engaging rp experience – because who doesn’t like getting needles stuck into them? Overall I think it’s too interesting a concept to pass up on and I’m sure many other medical rpers would enjoy adding acupuncture to their repertoire.
