Just a note of appreciation from a night-shift ED doc/EMS medical director from Tobey Hospital in Wareham, MA. I moved from urban knife-and-gun academics to “small town” emergency medicine, but still (oddly enough) face the same nonsense day in and day out. Reading Dr. Edwin Leap's column every month is like a breath of fresh air, air that I blow loudly at night, but no one cares but my equally cranky nursing and prehospital colleagues.
Keep the faith my friend. You keep mine alive!
