    It Happened Again. Another Flight Crew Can’t Believe a Black Woman Is Actually a Doctor

    Dr. Ashley Denmark, D.O., who hails from South Carolina, was on a flight from Seattle to Hawaii. The trip, to attend a good friend’s wedding, was intended as a bit of a rest and relaxation period for the busy doctor, wife, and mother of two. As soon as she heard there was a traveler in need of medical assistance, though, Denmark got up and made her presence known. That’s when everything went awry. Denmark shared her story on her website:

    The July Effect: Is it really more dangerous to go to the emergency room in the summer?

    Dr. Robert Robson, emergency physician, healthcare mediator, assistant professor at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Medicine, and principal at the Healthcare System Safety and Accountability Advisors (HSSA), loves to tell that story during his mediation sessions. Robson refers to the 2004 Baker-Norton study that revealed approximately 185,000 Canadians a year suffer serious injury under hospital care, and between 9,000 and 23,000 die. In the ensuing 12 years since that study, Robson suspects those numbers have only increased.

    Turns out shift work is even worse for you than you thought

    Doctors, nurses, firefighters and other shift workers know all about the effects of wonky sleep. Using animal models, scientists at the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine found that that subjects on shift work schedules had more severe stroke outcomes in terms of brain damage and loss of sensation and limb movement than controls on regular sleep-wake cycles. “The body is synchronized to night and day by circadian rhythms—24-hour cycles controlled by internal biological clocks that tell our bodies when to sleep, when to eat and when to perform numerous physiological processes,” says David Earnest, professor of neuroscience and experimental therapeutics and lead author of the study, published in Endocrinology.

    Female doctors show what it’s really like to work #LikeALadyDoc

    Twitter/ilovepathology Female medical professionals are taking to social media to express their thoughts after a sexist opinion piece published this past weekend blamed the U.K.’s healthcare problems on, you guessed it, women doctors.  According to Refinery29, a piece published by conservative journalist Dominic Lawson (Nigella’s brother), “blamed the healthcare problems not on government cuts, but on the growing number of women who are working in medicine. He seriously argues that female doctors are more likely to work fewer hours and prioritize their families over their careers, thus causing the NHS shortfalls in the U.K.” In the column, published in The Sunday Times, he argues that “it’s not just a matter of wanting to avoid ‘antisocial hours’ that interfere with family life — an institution to which men tend to pay homage but that women are actually more likely to put ahead of their career.”  “Last year Dr Max Pemberton wrote: 'We are facing a crisis in the NHS…It’s a crisis caused by having too many female doctors….Quite simply, the average male medical graduate will work full-time, while the average female won’t,'” Lawson writes.
