Triple whammy

Vacation = triple whammy loss of revenue for a surgeon:

  1. No services being sold
  2. Office overhead
  3. Cost of vacation.

I chose the wrong field.

Communication

“The greatest enemy of communication, we find, is the illusion of it.”

William H. Whyte

Master surgeon

“A master surgeon is one who can do the least surgery that obtains a very good result.”

Fracture

Most orthopedic surgeons would probably throw their arms up at this statement, but there is some truth to it: “a fracture is a soft tissue injury with a broken bone inside”.

Colonization

In the general population, about 33% of people carry S. Aureus and 1% carry MRSA. Contrary to popular belief, only about 5% of healthcare workers carry MRSA.

Skin cancer

Ultraviolet exposure during the first 10 years of life is the strongest predictor of non-melanoma skin cancer.

Private property

It is perfectly legal for a police officer to sit in a household driveway to set up a speed trap. Of course, the owner may ask said officer to leave, but that seems like asking for trouble.
