Inside Surgery Probes Grand Rounds


Well, this is a hoot!

I wish I could remember what ad this was attached to, but my mind draws the proverbial blank this morning.

I use it to illustrate the “marriage” of Inside Surgery to this week’s Grand Rounds!

I’ve seen weeks where the topics were varied, but this week is a virtual potpourri of subjects. Inside Surgery handles the topics straight up, making the ‘Rounds easy to navigate , with submissions placed in appropriate categories.

Emergiblog finds itself under the category of “The Rest”, which assigns it to life with the Professor and Mary Ann on Gilligan’s Island (you know the song: “…the Movie Star, and the rest).

Let me hasten to add that I find this an honor, because I had a mega crush on the Professor!

Come to think of it, how would you like to be only one of two eligible females on a deserted island and your co-hort happens to be Ginger? That would be just my luck.


Speaking of gorgeous bloggers, Mother Jones at Nurse Ratched’s Place is placing a call for submissions to the next Change of Shift, to be held on Thursday, June 14th.

It is the birthday of the nursing blog carnival, the last edition of Volume One! I can’t believe that almost a year has gone by!

Submissions can be sent to nurseratchedsplace at yahoo dot com or through Blog Carnival.


Just in case you can’t get enough linkage in your diet after Grand Rounds, check out Susan’s column on Nursing Jobs.org regarding a game show for organs and my history column on Emily Morgan, RN, “Diphtheria Nurse”.

There are nights I feel like the “Constipation Nurse”.
