Surgical Quotes

Never lie to a child about doctors or medicine or anything else; but if you feel, as some people seem to feel, that life without lying is an impossibility, at least dont lie about the amount of pain likely to result from a surgical procedure, or about the taste of some medicine. If you know that something to be done will hurt, say so; if a mixture to be swallowed is unpleasant, say so. If you deceive a child once in such matters, do not imagine that it will trust you again. You do not deserve trust, and you will not get it.

If a nurse declines to do these kinds of things for her patient, "because it is not her business," I should say that nursing was not her calling.

But I do say that these women had the true nurse-calling-the good of their sick first, and second only the consideration what it was their "place" to do-and that women who wait for the housemaid to do this, or for the charwoman to do that, when their patients are suffering, have not the making of a nurse in them.

"His work led to the reduction of post operative infections and safer surgical practices," Chubs insisted. "Who would you have picked? Captain America?"
"Steve Rogers is a perfectly legit name." Liam pass the ID back to him. " This is all ... very Boba Fett of you. I'm not sure what to say, Chubsie.

Of the many 'firsts' with which I have been involved at the Texas Heart Institute -including the first successful human heart transplant in the United States and the first total artificial heart transplant in the world-the achievement that may have the greatest impact on health care did not occur in the operating room or in the research laboratory. It happened on a piece of paper ... when we created the first-ever packaged pricing plan for cardiovascular surgical procedures.
