No health insurance? Here’s your bill for the night!

December 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Need more evidence that healthcare in the United States is spiraling out of control?  Here’s some poor guy’s healthcare bill that was posted online after having recently spent one night in the hospital.  To add insult to injury, the bill came just one week before Christmas!  Season’s Greetings!   Just to put things in perspective, a one night stay at The Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, Switzerland (billed as the world’s most expensive hotel room) would’ve cost a mere $65,000. http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/01/travel/expensive-hotel-suites-cnngo/index.html

Hitler on Match Day

May 13, 2011 6 comments

Every year on Match Day during the month of March, thousands of medical students find out where they are going to be enslaved performing their residencies in US hospitals.  In this clip, I present to  you Hitler finding out his match results.  (I made this video with the help of  Windows Live Move Maker using a scene from the movie, Downfall).

Doctor Nurse (NOCTOR) Shopping at Costco

"Oh no she didn't!"

 Just when you think you have seen it all folks.   Mad props to “DREDAY” over on the SDN forums for capturing this pic at a recent trip to the local Costco (who verified that this was indeed a doctor nurse from the labeling on the white coat).   They say a picture says a thousand words.  I think it says a million.  Still wondering why I finally had enough?  The bastardization of American healthcare marches on.

Goodbye Medicine

“I find I’m so excited I can barely sit still, or hold a thought in my head. I think it’s the excitement only a free man can feel. A free man at the start of a long journey who’s conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border. I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand. I hope the Pacific is as blue as it has been in my dreams. I hope.”

One for the Emergency Medicine Docs

Nothing like a good Xtranormal video to portray a day in the life of an ER doc.  So funny because it is so damn true!  The original version that garnered over 1 million views was pulled down but here is an equally entertaining remix.  Enjoy!
