Geeze, I hate missing Grand Rounds!
Joshua did a fantastic job this week over at The Efficient MD with his theme of Healthcare Innovations and New Technologies.
Seems the only innovation I had time for this week was using a Glad garbage bag for an emesis basin (Hey, it worked!).
Seems like Rosie from the Jetsons has become a nurse! That is what they are calling this cool machine in the photo.
No, they shouldn’t call it a nurse, that is inappropriate, but I’ll save that for another post. Give it another eye and put a nurse’s cap on it! (Yes, I know..shame on me…)
I’m very into artificial intelligence and these mechanical beings run all sorts of errands around the hospital and can even “talk” to each other so that one does not go where the other one is heading! I wonder if they gossip?
Hmmm….can they be programmed to give enemas in the ER? I’ll shove all the drugs you want, but enemas in the emergency department in the middle of the night should be banned.
Change of Shift is here next week – already the submisions are arriving so be sure and get yours in! Blog Carnival or directly to me (contact button up top), either way is fine. Remember – either by or about nursing – that is the running theme!
While you are here, please read my re-posting of my 9/11 memorial post to Mrs. Brenda Gibson who died in the Pentagon attack.
May we never forget.
