Like most of you, I’m continuing to watch the events unfold in Iran via Twitter and YouTube. Not surprisingly, given the escalating violence, doctors and nurses are caught in the crossfire.

I’ve been reading the Tweets coming out of Iran today, alternating between hope and despair. One tweet caught my eye.

It’s probably a good thing that I’ve been in hospital orientation and away from my computer this week. There are some people out there that need their ears boxed. Let’s start with Apple Inc.

Living Through Hospital Orientation

This poor old nurse looks tired. See the bags under eyes, and the tired expression on her face? I feel her pain. I bet she’s going through hospital orientation. I can’t believe it. I made it through my first week of orientation in one piece. Getting up at 3 AM in the morning and commuting [...]
