Get all House on their asses!  

Bureaucracy has no place IMO.  Yeah, wasteful, but explain to little Tiffany's parents that she died because the third link in a chain didn't get the proper paperwork stamped or something.

Unfortunately, most advancements in medical record keeping tend to be used as excuses to reduce headcount, rather than give health care workers more time to actually care for their patients.  So, when there's a failure like this, and everyone has to go back to paper charting, it really screws things up.  Even after it is back up, there is now a backlog of data that has to be entered.

Yep, it's all from that.

+1 on electronic charting not being used to actually help nurses. I think sometimes its meant to be as thorough as possible because insurance companies will try to weasel their way out of anything.

My mom used to do 6-8 hours of medical data entry a night at home to make ends meet, I know those feels.

After getting SOME sense of normalcy back in my life, certain people in my life have tossed me back into what seems to be the inescapable well of anxiety and depression.

I think it's funny when asked for my name on some text or online inquiry to use Wink Dinkerson.

Above the door on my race car, and at away tracks I used the name Kaiser Söze for an entire year, never once got called on it.

I rebuild a lot of welding equipment and one of the parts manufacturers is a combination of two company names, Abicor and Binzel. That's the name I use in situations where I prefer not to use my own.

It took everything I had. 
 

One of the girls I work with told me yesterday that she was off today and tomorrow, so I inquired. I'm into Olympic lifting, I have a competition. Telling me about her two lifts, and how confident she was. You know, I find that if I can clean it, I can jerk it. And you should see my snatch. 
 

It took everything I had not to say it

I bought a new 40 piece socket set because both my big sets are currently scattered and I can't be bothered to find them all and find out how many are missing.

My spine Dr, The guy I've been seeing for almost two years, has a name I must have not been paying attention to. A name that would work so much better in the adult film industry.

Dr. 
Max Root. 
 

 

I can't believe I missed that.

For as little as I really have to do during the days, I'm extremely berkeleying impatient about waiting for other people to do things. I just want to do what needs done then be bored again, is that too much to ask? 

Maybe this is a rant but it felt like a confession.

Semi-related: I stopped listening to Pantera after I realized that Phil Anselmo basically whines so much he should be in an emo band, but he had good music behind him to mask it.

I want a 7 clone.

I have never wanted one before and this morning I woke up and wanted one so badly that I can't imagine what it was like to not want one.

I secretly wish I had a diesel truck so I could let it idle outside the gas station door while I was playing scratchers at the counter and keeping people from buying their pork rinds and beer. laugh
