Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
Happy Nurses' Day
In the U.S., May 6 is Nurses' Day. Doctors, show the nurses you work with how much you appreciate their care and help. (I know my clinical workload would be far less manageable without my nurse; I might not even be able to handle it and my laboratory research at the same time.)
Patients, show how much you appreciate their caring work.
