By "found in the rubble"  I expect they mean "found it where they left it, but had to step over and around the remains of the ceiling and some of the wall to get to it".

It was found, and that's all that matters.

Most of the time, you don't need the doctor. But that one time you do, you really need him/her.

My girl gave birth to a dead baby and the doctor basically just stood there and held her vagina open.

The nurse did all the work. But if things went bad and my girl was in trouble, it would be the doctor who took over and solved the problem.

I've heard just as many anecdotes of nurses saving patients from doctors. Nurses have far more practical experience.

Yup.  I've got a couple nurses in my family.  If I ever have to go to the hospital, I won't allow any unsupervised doctor near me without an RN.

That doesn't explain why the doctor makes more money, only why s/he exists.

It'd actually be the FP-C certified Paramedic team and CCRN from the helicopter transport service who have been standing in the corner looking at eachother with a mixture of amusement and horror at watching the Doctor and Nurse biatch about who has the bigger penis.

And the Respiratory Therapist just walked in the room wondering who ordered him to give a breathing treatment, while the CNA is trying to wipe up the mess that everyone else has made.

You know what they call the guy with the lowest grade in his medical school class? Doctor.

I've dealt with some brilliant doctors and many completely idiotic doctors. If you can find a good doctor, hold them near and dear. They're pretty rare and worth 100x their weight in gold.

For one, supply and demand. The entry-level degree for an RN is an Associates which can be obtained at your local community college. An MD/DO must first compete for a spot in med school, where seats are limited by the AMA/AACOM and further limited by the number of residency positions available post-grad that are funded mostly by Congress (with heavy lobbying by the AMA/AACOM to limit numbers to maintain a shortage).

It just goes to show you that we should all be working together and stop worrying about how much money each one of us is worth.

The whole doctors vs nurses things is so farking retarded.  You need both to have a well functioning medical system. Yeah there's shiatty doctors out there who are incompetent and just went into it for the money but there's plenty of lazy nurses who mess up/don't fill orders who can completely screw a patient over (especially bad in cash strapped county hospitals).  In the optimal situation, you have experienced nurses who care for their patients and can inform the attending doctor of any notable changes in their patients and you have doctors who can take that information and make decisions on the next best course of action.  No matter what nurses with inferiority complexes say, when the shiat hits the fan, at some point you're going to need the knowledge a doctor has.

Because now people advocate for parents of hearing babies to learn how to sign so that they can communicate with their babies much sooner than they could if they stuck to the old-fashioned "wait until the baby learns to talk" method.

On the other hand, the cochlear implant industry's financial interests depends on rampant audism, the very same audism that says a deaf baby should never, ever, under any circumstances learn to sign, because they must "adapt" and pretend to be a pale imitation of a hearing baby.

So now you have hearing babies encouraged to sign, and deaf babies discouraged from it.  Thus, The Ultimate Irony.

Is that the thing where people think that being able to hear is better than being deaf?

Because being able to hear is better than being deaf.

Learning to sign is basically the norm for verbal babies these days too.
