recently saw a discussion on a Medical Laboratory page on a popular social networking
site. Someone started off a thread detailing an encounter with a nurse in which
a request was made that was so ludicrous it was funny. Others weighed in with
accounts of their personal experiences: mostly questions or requests from
of us in healthcare have worked in silos for so long it has become the norm. In
fact we justify it by saying due to the complexity of our body of knowledge,
others just will not understand. Physically and psychologically we are more
comfortable sharing space and projects with colleagues who are like ...
love science! I always have and I always will. So when I asked recently to be a judge
at a science fair at a local college, I immediately jumped at the request. I was really impressed with the quality of the
projects and the soundness of the research, the hypotheses proposed, and the findings.
I wish I
knew everything, but I don't. On second thought: it would be pretty boring to
have every fact at my finger tips and I never have to learn, to ask, research

The laboratory has always acted as an ancillary ...
A few years ago I was part of a team appointed by a national hospital company to study and make recommendations for staff retention. The organization had a horrendous record for turnover; in fact in some key areas like nursing assistants the turnover rate was 40 percent!
Such a high rate was untenable because of its cost to the organization, but ...
Most people realize that many job searches are conducted on the Internet. While most jobs are still obtained through personal networking, it is the odd job which is acquired through a cold call or a serendipitous find in a magazine, journal or newspaper.One site that is a treasure trove of information and is very underused by the typical medical ...
I am just not a morning person. I decided a long time ago that my ideal job would be that of a stage actor, working at night, relaxing leisurely after work, going to bed way after midnight and then sleeping in the following morning.
Most of us do not have that luxury, however, and we struggle with getting enough hours in a day. It is a ...
