“Sorry, but nobody works harder than surgeons”

There was a call for people to send in photos/video/text about how they are overworked. This one, written by a surgical resident, caught my eye.

Sorry, but nobody works harder than surgeons
As with most things, the comments are the best part. One astute commenter lumped all healthcare providers together for being over worked. Another talked about how unsafe that drive home for us must be. (Um, I don’t remember most of the 2 hour drive home from my NP job the other night, er morning.)

The winning comment? Made by a soldier.

Take a look.

  1. I am sure at this point in this surgeon’s life they feel overwhelmed with the workload. I suspect once this surgeon is done with their training things will improve. To say that nobody works harder than surgeons seems a bit obtuse. Perhaps it might be better to say that everyone in healthcare has a difficult job these days for many reasons.

    I wonder how this surgeon’s comments might be received by the armed forces currently on station in Iraq and Afghanistan? Many similarities, long days, trying to save lives, under constant pressure, and lets not forget the bullets and the IEDs they deal with.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm
