Burn out, real or nah?
It's more likely that we are acutely more aware of the battery life left in our smartphones than we are of the battery life left within ourselves. It's no surprise that healthcare workers deal with their fair share of high stress and high risk situations, so it should also come as no surprise that we suffer from Burnout Syndrome. Work environments are constantly changing. Patient loads fluctuates and administrations are pressuring employees to keep cost low but patient satisfaction high, all the while doing so short staffed.

Fact of the Month
An X-ray shoe-fitting fluoroscope was common in shoe stores during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. When a person put their foot in the fluoroscope, they were effectively standing on an X-ray tube. At the oblivious peak of popularity in the early 1950s, there were at least 10,000 of the machines in the United States and kids loved 'em. What kids wouldn't, right? But as time crept on, it became clear that these devices were not only leaking radiation all over the place, but were also a pretty dumb way of fitting shoes. By the 1970s, shoe-fitting fluoroscopes were almost universally banned, but damage had already been done; foot cancer began to rear its ugly head in many older patients, and there was little doubt as to cause. A shoe model for the shoe-fitting machines received such serious radiation burns that she had to have her leg amputated.
