They’re Gonna Git You Sucka…

Posted by isntshelovlei on August 19, 2011 someone made a comment to me that “they’re gonna git you…” in reference to some of the things I say on my blog. I’m not exactly sure who “they” are, but “they” can find me right here at TDAMCP…I’ll be here all day… 

I admit that my posts can be a bit snarky. They drizzle with sarcasm at times. But Sarah Good of social media I am not. The things I blog about such as coming to work sick, bedside manner, test taking, CPR, health statistics, professionalism, med math—just to name a few—are very relevant topics.

I don’t violate HIPAA, I don’t demean or disrespect patients, and let’s face it—I only say what most of you are already thinking (or have thought) anyway. Oftentimes I poke fun at the system—which we all know is far from a perfect one. But in order for things to change we need to shine light on the issues—not ignore them or sweep them under the rug. The light I shine just happens to be a sardonic, slightly mordant one…

So will I continue to blog? Yes. Will I cut down on my snarkiness? Probably not.

A closed mouth doesn’t get fed. And we have a lot of work to do—so open wide.

  1. I agree…what I post on my blog is my opinion. People tell me all the time that what I blog about might bite me in the butt…also another reason I had to pack up and start another blog too…

      I’ve actually recently been toying with the idea of starting a new blog (with a new alias to boot) and have decided to start one as a new grad. So there will only be a few more months of TDAMCP…

  2. Keep squeaking that wheel sista! The healthcare wheel needs some grease!

  3. I agree with you here on this. You say what is on your mind, but you do not violate any HIPAA privacy issues. Having an opinion should not be something that is censored. IMHO you have the right to speak your mind. That’s what I like about your weblog and your twitter. Keep up the great work and kudos to you in all that you do.
