Glad to be Back
Happy to return after an extended absence due to SARS and a Septal Wall MI second to the same. We never know the time or date but once we skip over the stick we’re always ready to return to what we know and understand, renewed.
We owe it to our patients and students to push each and every one of them to see not only the disease but the person to realize the lack of family interaction when patients are critical can lead to more deaths, longer recovery times, more stress on healthcare workers as well as other staff, and a loss of hope for the patient.
We must strive to understand even when tired and worn that we are their link to humanity and while our time is precious and must be spread incredibly thin - we are their only true human interaction at times and can be extremely important to their recovery. Take Heart and Give It In Return For if We Lose This One Special Gift We Will Lose Humanity.
Was a 4, now a 4.6 with changes
Excellent resource for learning and seeing what others do with medical issues that lend themselves to photographs and/or discussion. Still needs to: Be able to support the uploading of videos. Be able to allow typed in websites or references to act as hyperlinks.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for sharing this feedback, Kphelgerson. We are currently working on improvements to the app, so I have passed these points along to the team.
Kind regards, Ana from Figure 1
This app was fantastic to start, but has become a sad community of apparently ill-prepared providers as well as support personnel who seem to misunderstand scope of practice. I have never seen such egregious use of antibiotics as I see posted in cases on this app, as well as LPNs, RNs and EMTs who think hey have more training than they do. There are about three users who post valid, evidence-based information, otherwise it seems to be an outlet for nurses and EMTs who wish they were doctors, and bottom-of-the-barrel med students who really should know their stuff better. Embarrassing.
