Kimo's world #64

 Back issues and the Doctor's waiting room

 I was recently in a common  area waiting room  representing many medical surgeons. A beautiful state of the art office and waiting room.

There are stacks of 'Time','People' and many other  magazines with the address labels torn off. Most these magazines are at least 2 months old. The most current periodical was a 5 day old Garden Island newspaper.
I understand the need to recycle, however surgeons are some of the highest paid doctors in the medical profession. Why can't they have current  reading materials for their patients?

Not only was I there for back issues but all the reading material and magazines had  back issues of their own.
This meme was used this past week
to promote this blog on Facebook

 Frugal is one thing and cheap is another. Magazine subscriptions are not expensive, plus if your a doctor with  a waiting room and they are for your patients, they're a 100% write off. 

Please medical professionals give us the  respect of fresh reading  material in the waiting room. It could be our last wait.

I have never been much of a magazine reader (unless it's National Geographic, in which case, it doesn't matter how old the magazine is).

Nice play of words (re "Back issues")

i disagree with you, Kimo. I'm all for recycling. But i do like your play of words on back issues!

I'm for recycling too, who isn't? The point is to have current and updated reading materials especially for the sick and possibly dying patients.

Ron "Martini" Ostroff said...

Yes that's exactly what dying patients are concerned with.. current magazines to read

Harmony Bentosino said...

i detect a note of sarcasm in the response of Ronald Ostroff'.

You never know the current edition of the American Medical journal vs. a 6 month old edition could have a new found procedure or pharmaceutical to save your life!?
