Grand Rounds: New Take, Old Tradition

doctor bag

In honor of the historical look back at the origins of Grand Rounds provided by Dr. Sam Blackman this morning over at Blog, MD, I present this old ad for a classic doctor’s “black bag”.

I’m not sure when this ad was produced, but I bet those prices weren’t exactly cheap!

It has a characteristic called “open-flap”.

Well duh, how are you going to get inside it?

As I mentioned yesterday, I missed this week’s deadline because of my Jazzercise class.

I won’t be missing out on reading Grand Rounds though!

The coffee is brewing as we speak!

******************************

It’s also Change of Shift week and our old friend Gina will be hosting over at Code Blog: Tales of a Nurse this Thursday!

Send your nursing-related posts to “codeblogrn at gmail dot com”.

I’m writing my submission today and encourage any and all bloggers with nurse-related stories or nurses with any stories to send their submissions to Gina by the deadline!

    Ever since I locked myself out of Windows and have used a workaround, I can’t get full access to blog md’s site. Gak! I’m going to try to borrow someone’s pc so I can read all of the linky goodness.

    Enjoy your coffee – that sounds too tempting!

My grandfather, who graduated in 1911 (pre-Flexner Report) from a medical college that met the standards (whew) had a horse and buffy practice, no radiology in the curriculum, no ATB’s (for several more years) and his yearbook photo of the lab showed 10x powered microscopes – state of the art!

    So interesting, all of the history!
