I had a random thought about what would happen if ED physicians went on strike. Depending on what problems you experience at your facility or location (Press Ganeys, customer satisfaction before quality medicine, administration BS, lawsuits), a strike although not really ethical could really gain progress in eliminating some of the negatives of the job. I would expect the general public to be pretty upset though...."They make 3 figure salaries.."etc. I am not saying this is what I would want to do. It's just a thought that went through my mind. Anyone else?

I would strike too, if I was paid what you are....

Posting while under the influence seems like a good thing, but rarely works out.

Go to the ER now, or you'll have a stroke.
