Drinking songs for the nights that end with an admission and scheduled diazepam. The cover art has a hopeful title: “Together they totter about.”
Dusties, b-sides, hits, and remixes. All belong on a playlist capable of carrying you through the hospital. I filled these playlists with songs for the particular and peculiar enclosures of the hospital. Listen along, and let me know what songs I missed.
Songs about putting someone under, making that first cut, and (gulp!) waking them up. The cover art is in Polish: Stopien ryzyka!
Songs about labeling specimens, spinning down platelets, and meeting someone at the blood bank. The picture is an NIH advert. Call and ask for the turnip’s blood type.
Songs for taking call—signout, triaging the ED, answering pages, and working the floors. The cover art is Sir Wm. Osler, the patron saint of being on call.
Songs *groan* from the heart and for mending broken hearts. The cover art is courtesy of the McGovern Historical Center.
One is better? Two is better? Songs about blindness and seeing. The cover art is a vintage eye chart whose middle row is for children and the illiterate.
