Beyond being a violation of the hospital license and in fact a violation of state regulations and laws, it is logistically disruptive. “Doctors, there are not enough nurses and not enough auxiliary power, so in general these are flick.back exercises back and forth. We deserve 111 gold medals for virtuosity on a daily basis in the internal medicine departments, but never resilience.“
