medGadget Vocera Badge comment

I would like to thank Dr. O for his reply regarding the Vocera Badge entry on medGadget (and my subsequent rant). Here it is in its entirety:

I think you are reading too much into it. The post was written by a private MD (me), and the complaint was not about the nurses, but rather about being waken up in the middle of the night. Such is the nature of the job: and I can complain about it all I want. I have no interest to denigrate any professionals, medical or otherwise, nor I have any intent to denigrate anyone or any group. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I indeed may have been reading into it, but I also don’t get torqued about much. I also don’t stay irritated, or just straight pissed for very long (mildly irritated in this case).

This is also the point where I want to make sure you all understand that I believe the gulf still existing between the medical and nursing professions is ridiculous. We are all in this messed up healthcare system together.

Once again, Dr. O–I appreciate your taking the time to respond to this and appreciate the effort you have put forth on medGadget.
