The Medical Professional Behind the Mask at Grand Rounds


Dr. Couz at Tales From the Emergency Room and Beyond takes us beyond our medical personas and into our lives outside the medical atmosphere in this week’s Grand Rounds.

We counsel out patients to “take care of themselves” and give them the tools to do so. Tools that we often don’t take advantage of in our own lives.

She was kind enough to include a post from Emergiblog this week detailing a horrific experience I had with my son as a toddler.

The photo shown here pretty much explains what I did the rest of the night following that experience.

Thanks to Dr. Couz for hosting! The stories look fantastic, so grab your coffee and check them out!


Our colleague at Nurse Ratched’s Place, Mother Jones, RN, has put together an unbelievable Change of Shift for this week! She had so many submissions she had to actually put a cap on the number (no nursing cap pun intended!).

That is a first for Change of Shift.

So…get ready for Thursday’s Change of Shift! Sounds like it is going to be a good one!
