If you haven’t visited the site of fellow blogger Dr. Grumpy (Dr. Grumpy in the House), you should. Dr. Grumpy is a neurologist whose “. . .patients and practice drive me NUTS! Some days I’m so sick of patient shenanigans, the stupidity of insurance companies, and just the daily insanity of this field that I write this blog as my gripe forum. I’m a neurologist, and although I practice in an upscale suburban area, I sometimes seem to attract some remarkably “special” folks. I have no idea why. It just seems that weird crap happens to me or my patients. So this is where I vent about it.”
This week, Dr. Grumpy hosts Online Grand Rounds. He asked for submissions of blog posts about “things that make us grumpy,” and I provided my post about the Blunder Down Under. Dr. Grumpy found this grumpy enough to be included, and so it landed in the Grumpy Doctors section. I really appreciate his introduction to my piece: “Dr. Dalai, a radiologist who specializes in the “I’m tearing my hairs out by the roots” field of IT, sends in his grumpiness over trying to set up a PACS system.”
I would be REALLY grumpy if I had to deal with some of the other issues posted!
