Send us your thoughts, questions, and gripes. We’re here to listen!
When all the charts are out of the rack and you can finally catch your breath, it’s time to take a break. Then, and only then, can you fully consider the frustrations of the day and tomorrow’s solutions—as well as vent about what makes you insane and be thankful for what maintains your sanity as an emergency physician.
You can complain at work, but who would listen? You can complain at home, but they might not understand. You can internalize it all, but you’ll probably develop irritable bowel syndrome.
It’s time to come to “The Break Room.” Hang up your lab coat and stethoscope. Pull up a chair, and grab a cup of coffee. It’s time to talk about what frustrates you the most.
Who will listen? Who will understand? We, your colleagues, will.
“The Break Room” is as close to a “Letters to the Editor” column as we are going to have. You have a thought? Share it. You got a gripe? Bare it!
We’re here to listen. Let the conversation begin! Letters, e-mails, phone calls, and carrier pigeons are all welcome.
