Outside Hospital

I just came across this hilarious YouTube clip depicting an advertisement that touts the infamous "outside hospital". "Outside hospital" simply refers to any hospital that is not your own -- the hospital you work at, that is.

While it strictly just refers to a hospital, this term actually has much richer connotations. A patient being transferred from an outside hospital usually has had many unnecessary procedures, countless tests, and, most irritating of all, is transferred over with a surprising shortage of records and documentation describing what happened there ... and the very few that are sent are of no help at all. Unfortunately you probably cannot fully appreciate this video unless you have worked or trained at a large -- and probably university-based -- hospital.

The best part is the series of back-and-forth comments at the bottom of the page that viewers have posted, particularly by some very defensive people.

But ... the bestest part? "We'll send the nursing notes".

The term “ethical” will mean different things for different people. As a catch-all phrase,Onitsuka Tiger typically refers to products that are made within fair trade guidelines, do not harm animals, and/or require minimal environmental impact for their production. The Abercrombie Fitch store can also support social causes or charities. There are many shoe companies that produce products that fall under these guidelines. Here are five companies that produce
