    does Youtube now allow offline viewing?

    A browser extension called "video download helper" lets you view things offline because it downloads them locally.

    Robot surgeons have problems with bad drivers and oblivious pedestrians?

    The one in need of a reboot, just to check that everything's still good?

    It's my wiki. Run yum update today. It's running like a charm.

    Of 800,000 active doctors in the US, assuming a normal length career, nearly every other doctor will kill a patient through sloppy handwriting alone in their career. Every. Other Doctor.

    And this doesn't include the mistakes in giving the wrong medicine, mixing medicines, and other common life threatening mistakes. This is one singular method that isn't even a mistake, just refusing to use proper professional communication methods as would be considered a minimum worker standard in any other field. Basically... McDonald's takes transmitting your order from cashier to cook more seriously than most doctors take getting your prescription from doctor to pharmacist.

    This was definitely true a few years ago, but becoming much and much less true. Electronic submissions of prescriptions is pretty common today. My office has been doing it for nearly 10 years.

    Becoming less true, but still vastly true. My family has loads of pharmacists in it and they talk about all the garbage that happens still today. And we know doctors that don't even have computers in their offices still. It's very much still true today. And that 7,000 number is the rate per year that sloppy handwriting causes deaths TODAY after many doctors have moved away from handwriting. Think about that... imagine what the figure was just ten years ago, maybe 70,000?

    Definitely horrible - I blame the pharmacists though as much as I do the doctor. They are clearly guessing at what the doctor meant, instead of confirming. If the pharmacists were to push back on the doctors by calling and refusing to fill a prescription until they confirmed a messy script, the doctors would likely be pressured into writing better.

    Nah - that's truly overstating it from my experience - at least to the patients faces, the doctor cares - the staff generally doesn't, but the doc does. Now, once they move past you as a patient, who knows if they continue to care or not - but I gotta ask - how many IT people care about their customer once they get done with them? I bet around the same number of docs who care about the patient afterwards.

    Now you might say - oh.. but he's a doctor, he should care.. really? why?

  • @dashrender I don't claim to care one bit about our customers, but I don't work in a field that has the word "care" in it's name. And if doctors really did care at all, the American health care system would be much less of a joke. Doctors haven't cured anything in decades because they figured out all the $$$$$$ is in treatment of disease, not eradication of disease.

    If doctors actually cared, then money wouldn't drive everything they do. They may seem to "care" while they're in the same room as you, but they care more about that new vacation house on an island, or their new, ridiculously expensive supercar, or whatever. The patient is just a cash cow, and they only need to care enough to keep that revenue stream rolling.

    Why yes, I am VERY cynical... I call it being realistic.

    Do you consider doctors elsewhere on the planet (in first world countries) different? To that end I have no idea.
    It seems unlikely that doctors in France/Germany/UK, etc aren't thinking about expensive supercars either.

    These are people after all. While there are some people who give fully of themselves for others, I certainly don't expect it from most.

    But are they given a free pass to act like incompetent buffoons and not behave like a competent secretary who would never communicate sensitive, life threatening information by hand rather than digitally? The US treats doctors like they are simultaneously idiot children that can't be expected to function in society, and as the critical holders of our healthcare. No other profession would be socially accepted to write critical life saving or death causing information by hand, let alone routinely in a way that cannot be read. None

    I really don't know anything about doctors in other countries. All I know is that the US is the only place where drug companies advertise so heavily that they have tricked the patients into asking for or demanding this or that new prescription drug. I know that in other countries, the doctor tells you what medicine to take, not the other way around. In that respect, I'm sure that most foreign doctors have the patient's well being as a higher priority than making sure to prescribe stuff from the drug companies that pay them the most.

    You also don't use government corruption to hold your customer hostage and threaten their lives if they don't come to you.
