"Years ago, death was considered a natural part of life and most people died at home, surrounded by families. Today, most people die in hospitals and death is commonly regarded as a medical failure rather than a natural event."

A message about forgotten diseases, and how we can keep them forgotten (hint: vaccines) from Beatrice the Biologist, whose comics are wonderful.

Do it for the testicles. And for the ovaries. And for the good of humanity.

"The connections you make with your patients stay with you long after they’ve left your care. Sometimes it’s a difficult patient who taught you how to be resilient; Then there’s the confused elderly person who taught you patience; Or maybe the chronic one who couldn’t get longterm placement, so they became part of the unit’s family - and mourned like a loved one when they passed, Or perhaps it was a terminal patient that gave you an understanding in dignity. Every so often, you experience an encounter with a patient, one whom has touched your soul so deeply, you are reminded on the roughest of days that there is grace and simplicity in nursing."
