“There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God,”
Ecclesiastes 2:24 ESV
As a physician, I am disappointed that our profession has become a victim of bureaucracy, over regulation and political correctness. When I began my medical career, the hours were extremely long and the medical care as inherently stressful as ever; but, we were allowed to take care of patients in an efficient manner, and, at the same time, we could have a fun work environment. Now, every step along the way, we are confronted with stifling rules and regulations, denials and complaints and roadblocks and harassment. The fun has been “outlawed”. I believe we have to turn our healthcare system around in a way that makes it desirably fun. To have great healthcare, we need joyful caregivers.
