It’s Saturday, it’s poorly written, it’s #NHSthisweek:
The health secretary hailed Microsoft Excel with the cells shaded in a threatening red colour as “great technology”
Meanwhile, here at BAM! we too devised a new way of using technology to see the state of the health service in your region
As a result of Ipswich’s new technology, Jeremy Hunt was able to accurately display just how understaffed the whole of East Anglia really is.
Which apparently is something to be really proud of.
I mean he’s basically trolling us isn’t he? Hailing understaffed wards as a success? He sure does know how to trigger the masses.
Meanwhile over in #FOAMed world, end tidal co2 monitoring is leaving us, as new anaesthesiologists faff about with ultrasound trying to see which tube the tube is in.
And remember, if you think that finding solutions to problems that already had solutions is a waste a time/a giant vanity project, then YOU are the problem and not the people peddling this nonsense
Meanwhile the NHA narrowly lost an election to see who’ll be the treasurer of the Boston Historical Battlefield Recreation and Warhammer Society.
In Westminster, Boris tried to distract us by announcing a bridge from the UK to France, so that nursing staff now have an even easier way of getting the hell of out here once Brexit takes hold.
Elsewhere, the BMA continue to exist, though Christ knows how.
And in the Bentley-Smythe 100k follower challenge (now officially called “100 grand of BS” the follower count this week rose by 5.
We are now just 99274 followers away from me getting a blue tick and a permanent spot on Russia Today.
And that’s the #NHSthisweek. There might be a guardian article comparing the NHS to Custer’s Last Stand, but I haven’t read it.
Oh, and some people got really uptight about whether or not medical students should do the thing they’ve trained to do for 5 years during winter pressures. There was probably tears.
Also neatly forgetting that student nurses have been used as free service provision during the last few years and no one batted an eyelid

Long thread coming up but I want to put my thoughts about #TheatreCapChallenge down in one last long rambling thread before I block everyone connected to it and move on
1) the logic from certain people is:

People die in theatre

Those deaths stem from errors

Those errors happen because of poor communication.

poor communication occurs through not knowing names

If we knew the names of the staff....

Communication will improve

Errors will reduce

Lives will be saved.


A hat with a name on is an example of knowing someone’s name



and also...

Like a collection of deleted tweets before a politically sensitive royal college election, no ones going to read this either, it’s #NHSthisweek!

In the news this week:
Horror at awards ceremony as privately funded conference gives award to man who sits on organising committee for his services to patient safety and we all lose our shit about it.
It’s as if no one looked at the programme and saw Jeremy’s name on the list of speakers and thought, “gee there’s a safety prize, do you think theyll give it to the #iminworkjeremy guy instead?”

Like a prescription written on a poorly functioning and not very user friendly e-prescribing system, it’s #NHSthisweek !

This week, how the Dr/first name debate will probably rage on twitter
First off, Mr Hunt says we need to start calling Doctors by their first name rather than by their title.
Sorry I’ll do that again, in the spirit of it.

Jeremy will say we need to start calling Doctors by their first name rather than title.

Like a monopoly board with no good spaces for anything good to come through, it’s #NHSthisweek!

This week, a special how-to guide.
Say you’ve had a great idea, perhaps you think we should make Medical professionals with several degrees and a wealth of experience conduct ward rounds in baseball hats to stop interruptions, neatly ignoring the tenacity of most ICU nurses?
Or perhaps you think the way to promote the genuinely good idea of getting elderly patient out of bed and dressed is to fill your kardex with ideas for prescribed exercises, so that there’s no space for actual drugs?

Like a blog you’ve thrown together at the last minute to maintain you’re public profile, it’s #NHSthisweek :
Protests against the GMC continue, including one suggestion to rip up GMC registration certificates outside their London offices. On a Saturday.
Which leads to the philosophical question, if a man rips up a certificate and no ones there to see it (cos it’s a Saturday) does it make or sound, or even an impact?

It’s Saturday it’s #NHSthisweek on twitter:
64 emergency medicine doctors write to the PM over the #nhscrisis, meaning 64 bed managers will be angrily demanding to know why the PM hasn’t accepted the referral in 4 hours time...
Meanwhile 64 med regs have been told that they need to chase the result of the letter
