Dr. Alice Has a Camera; Be Very Afraid
At least once a month and sometimes once a week I spend a significant chunk of my weekend driving around the city rounding on my nursing home patients. When my patients go to SNFs (skilled nursing facilities) or wind up requiring long term care, I follow them there; it's part of being a primary care MD. Two weeks ago as I was rounding I realized that I still had my digital camera sitting in my purse, where it had been living since my vacation. I decided to liven up my drive by taking random pictures around the city and had so much fun that I plan to do this every time I round.
It definitely livened up my day. I'll try to do this again.
