Change of Shift & The Doctor Anonymous Show

First of all, hightail it over to Reality Rounds for the latest edition of Change of Shift!  She did a splendid job of making it very spooky by renaming our blogs.  (I am Corpseblog!)

And tune in tonight at 6pm PST to the Dr. Anonymous show, where he will be interviewing me.  Talk about scary :-)  I am excited to finally be asked (I’ve waited years!) but also nervous because I am not exactly well-practiced in live interviews!

I’m looking forward to the show. It’s gonna be fun!

What brought me to the blog was a very old and sexist joke. It came back to me when I read the headline “Trust Your Nurse” in Medscape.

The only reason I’m sharing it is that it makes an important point.

Assuming that nurses are female and doctors are male (I told you this was very old!) the question is: “Do you want to talk to the man in charge, or the woman who knows what’s going on?

I would take the nurse over the doctor almost every time.

Did I mention that my training is in medical ethics?
