          The 2009 results are in!!

The nominees for this year's Whack-a-Support Staff are:

a) Support Staff "H", for inserting into a patient's medical record, this scientifically based medical appraisal: "I saw the patient at a parade and she looked just fine."

b) Support Staff "M", for: "We get in at 10:30 AM, we take Lunch from 12:00 to 2:00, and go home at 4:00 PM."

c) Support Staff "O" for: "We'll call in the prescription for your post-surgical antibiotics two days from now."

AND The Whacky goes to: Support Staff "H"!!
(Parade THIS, ya Whackee!)


The nominees for this year’s Whack-a-doc award are:

a) Dr. W for: “You don’t have AS, try physical therapy.”

b) Dr. X for: “I don’t want to see you anymore and I'm not telling you why ... EVER!”

c) Dr Y for: “Prednisone is nothing more than a strong pain reliever.”

d) Dr. Z for: "Why are you here? ... I don't care what our other medical records say, the quack you left to come see me because he misdiagnosed you was right, even if he was wrong, that's the system ..."

AND ... IT'S A TIE!!   THE WINNERS ARE:

Dr. X for "I don't want to see you anymore and I'm not telling you why", and Dr. Z for: "Why are you here? ... I don't care what our other medical records say, the quack you left in order to come see me because he misdiagnosed you was right, even if he was wrong, that's the system."

Congratulations, Doctors, you two Whackees prove our point; that Docs deserving of whacking are all around us!

Once again Health Care Providers "distinguished" themselves in such an overwhelming manner and in so many circumstances and affecting so many people, the judges felt compelled to once again give the award to ALL of America's Health Care Providers in total, for all they have done and continue to do to screw up the health of Americans everywhere.  A giant "Whack" to you, Health Care Providers!

And finally, this year, the coveted Uriah Stoop award is given to:  Dr. “T”, aka the “Texas terror”, who gave new life to a classic storyline by telling a patient he was seeing for only the second time, “The severe tremors you are having are all in your head. You need to see a Psychiatrist." (Later, the patient discovered the tremors were, in fact, due to a side effect of one the meds she was taking.)

Congratulations to all our whackees.
