WOW, what a comeback grandstanding... First you tell me docs are admired from your side, then when I point out the obvious elitist attitude from your side, thinking I was "a layman" you go limp. NOW, you have decided to crawl back to the trench again. Hoooopla hoooo.<quoted text>
You promptly shifted into the ever superior rhetoric that your support staff are use to. Neither job could be done without the other; your scrubs are worn in the same manner, stethoscope used for the same purpose, and anatomy is studied in similar fashion.
Yes, our scrubs are worn the same manner?? Not really, I wear whatever I want to. You work on immaculation 24/7. Stethoscope used for the same purpose?? Really? Is that why I am being asked to listen to someone's lungs "just to verify" that the tube is in place even though you just did?
Anatomy studied in same fashion?? Really? Can you tell me the branches of the Maxillary artery before we numb and fix a mouth injury without having to look it up? Can YOU tell me all the bones of the hand without looking it up and can you do so on an XRAY until waiting for radiology report?
Sorry, I digress, but we have ABSOLUTELY ZERO in common. I am sick&tired of having to "cosign" someone else's job so I can take that liability on my ass. Likewise, I am sick and tired of having to work and see every patient as a potential minefield. No tort reform and full blown Obama care. 25% or more pay cut, more MORE MORE red tape and all I get is FLAK...
Call it "superior rhetoric" if you want and yes, you are correct. In this sense I am FAAAAAAAR superior to you (in my humble opinion).
