By GREG HAMMER, MD Burnout among healthcare professionals is at an all-time high. Its drivers include longer work hours, the push to see more patients, more scrutiny by administrators, and loss of control over our practice.

Days in the operating room and intensive care unit seemed more and more exhausting,...

Southwest of Philadelphia, my father, Hank Bause, attended Crozer Seminary and heard a Crozer alumnus, Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., practice his sermons. One of Dad ’s vivid memories as a seminarian was driving me, his 9-month-old son, to Crozer Hospital (upper left) after I had toddled into the kitchen and planted both hands down upon the open door of our heated oven. TheChester Times headlined this incident as “Child Burned on Oven.” After my father graduated from Crozer, he drove my mother and me to Stratham, New Hampshire, so he could serve as a fledgling pastor there. Less than a year after my f...

However, issues pertaining to shortages of this medicine in SA warrant concern and discussion, particularly in view of the high reliance of doctors on ketamine for first-line procedural analgesia in the management of bur...
