Grand Rounds With Our Three Favorite Shrinks!


I couldn’t resist.

Dinah, ClinkShrink and Roy of “Shrink Rap” were discussing how folks miss their blog because they think it is spelled “Shrink Wrap”!

And when I say discussing, I mean really discussing!

There is a podcast with this edition of Grand Rounds!

It was fun listening while I was perusing the posts – they even discuss Emergiblog in there.

(Trust me guys, the patients I described may have been faking, but they were definitely over the top! LOL!)


Change of Shift is two days away! Send in your submissions to me by Wednesday at 5 pm. I’m doing hosting duties this week and Mother Jones over at Nurse Ratched’s Place is on deck for the next edition!

If you are interested in hosting, let me know!


It’s 3 pm and I haven’t been to bed yet after working all night.

I had to attend a three-hour class on Joint Commission patient safety goals.

I was all excited because I just knew it would be a massive treasure trove of blog fodder.

Major bummer.

I actually enjoyed it.

Not a morsel of blog material to be found.

I blame it on being sleep deprived.


You have got to check this out.

James Lileks has posted a booklet with hilarious ads for Miles Nervine and Alka Seltzer. It’s supposed to be a joke book – and it is, albeit not like the authors intended!

Wish I had found it first!

Check out the ad with the patient throwing his plate at his nurse.

Back then, the nurse just ducked.

Today, he’d wind up in four-point leather restraints!
