410 – Physicians Are The Leaders of Healthcare

In healthcare, Physicians – not executives, nurses, or politicians – are the ones who hold the highest levels of licensing to do the most extensive levels of care. They are the ones who lead the procedural teams and make things happen. A lot of the culture and morale depends on the physician.

I am stepping away from other voices to urge physicians to work WITH administrators instead of perpetuating the “us vs them” default.

We need you – physician – at the table of leadership so that you can create common sense policies that serve patients best.

As we sadly see played out daily in politics, a house divided cannot stand. It’s going to take a unified front with administration to make this happen. You belong there, you can do it – physicians are the leaders of healthcare.

409 – Michael Scott Promises

Is there a point where ambitious promises – like healthcare for all (including non and not-yet-citizens) are actually so irrationally ambitious that the act of making the promise becomes cruel?

Not for healthcare workers whose backs bear the weight of the promises, but the voters who naively support politicians who make unsustainable pledges for votes? Is it even appropriate or legal of me to ask this politically incorrect question?

Yes, I’m alluding to the Most. Cringeworthy. Episode of The Office S6E12 “Michael Scott’s Tots” – where we see a rarely seen side of what happens when OverPromise meets UnderDelivered. (BTW – Like you, I also want to find real solutions for real human needs – but perhaps there’s a wiser way to go about it.)

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this (before you flag me)!
