I’m writing this on September 10, so I don’t know what tomorrow will bring as we observe the Twentieth year since America was attacked by foreign terrorists intent on destroying our financial system as well as the seat of government and the headquarters of our military. The succeeded in bring down both high towers of […]

Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

1 month 2 weeks ago

It’s September, so that means it’s Prostate Cancer Awareness Month (PCAM). Lung cancer is non sexist, as it kills both sexes indiscriminately. Behind that for men, is Prostate Cancer. Behind lung cancer for women is breast cancer. For men, due to increased awareness, increased testing, and earlier treatment, the five year survival rate 99%. According […]

Needs More Cowbell!

1 month 3 weeks ago

Albert Einstein is reputed to have said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” People quibble over whether or not he actually said that, and if it’s true. I don’t know if it’s the definition of insanity, but it sure is the definition of stupidity. I […]

The Worst Is Yet To Come

1 month 3 weeks ago

On the weekend of August 14-15 the situation in Afghanistan and particularly Kabul was dire. The Taliban had taken over most of the country and more importantly captured the Presidential Palace and the American Embassy. The Afghan National Army had cut and run, leaving the Taliban to take over the former American stronghold of Bagram […]

What If They Held An Insurrection and Nobody Came?

2 months ago

Alternate title is “The Insurrection That Wasn’t.” Even though the FBI arrested over 570 people who were at the January 6 Insurrection, they haven’t charged even one person with participating in an insurrection. Keep in mind that there were no guns carried by these so called insurrectionists. Keep in mind that with one exception everyone […]

A Debacle

2 months ago

NOTE: In the first version of this post I neglected to mention the true disgrace of this debacle. That is the lives sacrificed or changed forever by US Military personnel and others trying to put lipstick on the pig known as Afghanistan. Afghan official says troops surrender Bagram air base to Taliban; base is home […]

Of Masks And Men, Epilogue

2 months 1 week ago

A brief update to my previous post. This is Michael Osterholm PhD, MPH speaking on CNN. He’s one of the President Biden’s top advisors on Covid 19. He says the exact thing I said in my previous post. Only N95 masks can protect the wearer from the virus. Notice that he says that people in […]

Of Masks and Men

2 months 2 weeks ago

I laugh, derisively, at friends and relatives who try to lecture me on medical topics. I’m obviously not a doctor and never pretend to be. On the other hand, I spent a lot of time working with and learning from doctors. Those doctors included some men and women who were professors of medicine at a […]

Bad Care

3 months ago

As I mentioned in my last post, from time to time I’ll post about some of the bad care that I see as a Quality Assurance Auditor. Our goal where I work is not to punish providers, but to use cases that are not up to the standards set for quality care as educational purposes. […]

Iatrongenic is harm induced inadvertently by a physician or surgeon or by medical treatment or diagnostic procedures. In other words, by accident. The provided, whether doctor, nurse, EMS provider, or anyone else didn’t mean to cause harm, but […]

Time Marches On

3 months 1 week ago

It’s now almost nine years since I retired from active work in EMS. When I retired, I thought that the 35 years I spent in EMS with one agency had gone by quickly. It had, but it was nothing compared to the time since I took off my uniform for the last time, emptied my […]

National Rifle Association

3 months 2 weeks ago

For the record, I have been a member for over twenty years and a Life Member for several years now. I’ve attended about half a dozen Annual Meetings and Exhibitions. In other words, I’ve been a supporter for a while now. I even voted in the Board of Directors elections, even though it’s a rotten […]

Child Abuse During The Pandemic

3 months 2 weeks ago

I hope the title got your attention. I’m not talking about the “traditional” definition of child abuse, but rather the practice of forcing children from about age 2 up to 18 to wear masks. This is supposed to be protective, but no one quite specifies who is being protected and from what. That’s aside from […]
