Quote of the Day, July 13th 2007

Went to a Quality Control meeting today with Dr. A, because he was on call today and is the Medical Director of the Hospitalist service. When discussing 30-day mortality from Pneumonia in our hospital:

QA Guy: "[Our Hospital] has the lowest 30-day mortality rate for Pneumonia in the state!"
Everyone: *claps*
Crit. Care Doc/Pulmonologist/Intensivist: "It's obviously over-diagnosis"
Everyone: *laughs*
Intensivist: "We treat heart failure with antibiotics"

Am leaving for vacation tomorrow, will be back in a week or so (as if I weren't behind enough on my RSS feeds already...)
