The Sniffling, Sneezing, Aching, Coughing, Stuffy-head, Fever, So-You-Can-Rest Grand Rounds


Now, we all know stepping in a puddle does not cause a cold!

But I still have patients who think they got sick by not wearing a jacket or forgetting an umbrella!

Want some real information on colds?

Check out this week’s edition of Grand Rounds over at ButYouDon’tLookSick!

Christine had a “colds” theme this week and, in spite of suffering from a doozy of a virus herself, put together a great group of posts from around the medical blogosphere.

And guess who gets to host Grand Rounds next week?

Yep! I am honored to be hosting the esteemed medical blog carnival for the third time next Tuesday! No theme required and submissions due by 6 pm Pacific time on the 28th. Looking forward to collecting a good group of topics!


Change of Shift is being hosted by Beth at PixelRN this Thursday, so hurry and get your nursing-related posts to her at “beth at pixelrn dot com”!
