ER Throwdown


Work the last few days has seriously resembled a WWF wrestling match. In a nutshell, a certain faction has decided that we need to take something that we do routinely (and damned well, if I do say so myself), and change the entire way we do it for their convenience. My department, in spite of the pressure cooker we work in, is really very laid back and easy going, but this has gone just a little too far. They are stepping on our toes big time, and we're fighting back. Hard.


Keep your stations tuned to CNN for further developments. (Oh, all right. Just check back here instead).


And here's a hint. It involves my very favorite group of people in the world.


P.S. In reading this over, I remembered that last week's write up wasn't my first in this job after all. Ahh. Good times.


P.P.S. This battle is unexpectedly over only a couple of hotly contested rounds in. A TKO was scored by one of the departments involved that rendered the opponent helpless and without recourse. Any guesses?

No guesses about the outcome but it can be so hard to battle with people who have a God complex.

ooh - always the top dogs want to make sure everyone knows they are the top dogs...
We have had some interesting documentaries about how difficult it is to organise and manage hospitals because of - you guessed it - the attitude of surgeons... Generally they think they know the best way of doing stuff - but they are not going to tell anyone what that is and they are going to make sure that whatever anyone else says is wrong and won't work.
Good luck

ER trumps OR and Surgeons Who Think They are Gods? That's my guess.

Did the Psychotic ER doc take down the egocentric surgeon? My God, a little baby oil, a padded cage and this could be the keynote address for the next ANA Convention!
