Geriatric Nursing’s top 99 nurse blogs, and I’m one of them!

The whole list is here, and it looks pretty good (Emergiblog is still out there, which is nice, most of the others were new to me), and then there’s the writeup they gave this humble blog:

Allen is an emergency care physician from Texas who describes himself as “a grunt in the doctor world”. Having been immersed in the critical aspects of healthcare for most of his career, the Grunt Doc has certification in Emergency Medicine and is now retired, living with his family. His commentary is at times amusing, other times quick-witted and sharp – but it always manages to put a smile on our faces.

That’s very nice but I’m not retired, though admittedly I’m not as fast as I once was.

 

If you’re looking for a day or two of good reading that’s a great place to start.

And, thanks Geriatric Nursing!

 

Steven DenBeste 1952-2016

I cannot say I knew anything of the man except from his writing in the early days of blogging, and it was usually terrific ( i never got the Animae, but to each his own). The USS Clueless was his vessel, and ironic title given how he had a pretty good handle on things.

And now I learn he’s died, way too young. I enjoyed the education he gave, and the erudition with which he brought it.

 

RIP.

Dead Blogs

Time to prune the blog rolls.  No posts in a while?  Your blog is deceased.  (Yes, like the Norwegian Blue Parrot).

It’s a hobby, not a career.

Health Policy & Communications Blog

Health Policy & Communications Blog

Welcome to the Health Policy & Communications Blog. This blog is to foster discussion and analysis about how health policy and communications issues affect clinical and economic outcomes.

Health policy affects everyone who reads this blog (or any other for that matter, perhaps less directly).  A well-written blog, worth reading.
