The official who licked their finger (in a hospital, not a doctor’s office) is a bit of a legend.
A very common story in health care, but it’s still a good one to share.
It’s not the first time, though. In 1990, the American medical association banned doctors from licking their fingers, and it was only re-instated in 1997. The reason was because licked fingers could be infected by germs and spread diseases, so it was a bad idea to do it. The idea that doctors would lick their fingers is actually a bit counter-intuitive, since they actually are supposed to be “cleansing” them and removing germs.
The big issue in health care is that it’s often not healthy for a person to have a lot of health issues. The best way to protect a person from the effects of their own health is not to have them take a long time to recover from their illness, but to keep them healthy while they’re still healthy.
This is one of those things that is extremely hard to change people to do. Doctors are trained to look for signs of disease and treat it, but that doesn’t mean that they actually work to save lives. If they are not working to save lives, then they are not saving lives.
A quick look at the internet shows that there are many different types of illnesses and diseases. Some are caused by “bad luck,” and some are caused by “good luck.” For instance, diseases that are due to bad luck could include cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, and most types of infectious diseases.
A quick screen shot of the “bad luck” signs for a few days shows that the more cases, the worse the disease. If you see one, you’ll notice it’s usually a case of bad luck. It’s a fact that the more cases, the worse the disease.
For instance, cancer is a disease that is caused by the body’s natural processes of the decay of cells and tissue. A quick screen shot shows that most people who have cancer die within a year of the diagnosis. This is because the more often you have cancer, the worse you’ll get. If you do nothing, the odds of dying from cancer are more than 3 in 1,000,000.
Cancer is the most common cause of death for women. So is heart disease. So is stroke. So is Alzheimer’s.
Most people with cancer will die within a year of their diagnosis, but not all will.
