I’m battling through the CES conference this week, so it’s a bit crazy around here. Plus, you know that Friday we like to have a little fun. I found these two healthcare cartoons that I thought would be a fun Friday post.
Of course, this is only funny until you’re in that position. It’s a crazy world we live in. Have a great weekend!
On most Friday’s we try to share something as part of our Fun Friday series of blog posts. This week we’re finally getting the chance to share the genius work of ZDoggMD. If you’ve read the site for a while, you certainly are familiar with the slightly funnier than placebo rappin’ doctor. In this video he takes on a parody of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”. He’s screaming through the lyrics in this one and it’s chalk full of interesting one liners about our current healthcare system. Lots to chew on in this video as we enter the weekend.
This week my cousin sent me a message late at night on Facebook. She’s a nurse and had just experienced her first patient who coded on her. Needless to say it was a traumatic experience and she was reeling from the experience. I’m not sure how much I helped her, but I tried to show some empathy and at least be there to listen to her in her time of need.
This experience reminded me of what a challenging job it is to be a nurse. We certainly don’t show them enough appreciation. With this in mind, it seemed fitting for this Fun Friday post to share ZDoggMD’s “Dear Nurses” parody of Tupac Shakur’s “Dear Mama.”
A big thank you to all the nurses out there that make healthcare great and don’t get nearly the recognition they deserve.
Nothing like a cartoon to use humor to illustrate a really important point. We have to be careful that personalized medicine doesn’t make medicine less personal. Also, a great reminder that technology should assist the doctor and not replace it. Technology doesn’t have common sense.
It’s Friday and I’m in Utah where today is a state holiday (think a second July 4th party). What does all that mean? It’s time for another Fun Friday post. I thought this comic that Dan Munro shared would be perfect:
I think the only modification we need is to have it say “See: Healthcare.” If you want to make this educational, the comic does point out some other places we could look to see where standard proliferation has been a problem. Or you could just enjoy the humor and head for the weekend. Either way, Happy Friday!
It’s Friday and I’m traveling to a friend’s funeral so I thought I’d counterbalance my own personal sadness with a fun Friday video. Where do you turn for funny healthcare videos? No other than ZDoggMD. His latest video is called Readmission, which is a R. Kelly “Ignition (Remix)” Parody. Enjoy the video and have a great weekend.
Only readers of this site could enjoy this pharmacy sign. Thanks to HIPAA One for sharing the picture with me. Have a great weekend everyone! Stay Warm!
Maybe the pharmacy thought that HIPPA with two P’s stood for Patient Privacy. Of course, a quick search through posts on my site turn up 18 posts with HIPPA. So, this might be the pot calling the kettle black. I just enjoy the humor of humanity.
