This wall in our residency clinic never had papers removed from it. Ever. I think the Declaration of Independence might be up there somewhere.
I tried to find the oldest paper I could on the wall. This was one from 2000. (Photo taken in 2009.)
Ooh, one from the early 90s:
Kurt Cobain was still alive when that was put up on the wall. Think about it.
Let me know if you find one saying "The Hospital will be closed for a week so that we may install the new electric-style lighting devices."ReplyDelete
The computers at our hospital that run the urodynamic testing software run on Windows 95, and still require stacks of 3 1/2 floppys.ReplyDelete
There are stacks of discs there from the early 90's still, though what they're saving, I don't know.
One of our plate readers we have still uses a dot matrix printer. When people we use we almost choke them out after thirty minutes of: dt dt dt dt dt dt errrrrrrrrrrrrrr dt dt dt dt dt errrrrrrrrrrReplyDelete
iamnothouse: our EMG machines required the floppy discs too. It was so nostalgic!ReplyDelete
The resident office hadn't been cleaned out in equally long. With each rotation of residents, the program director would come into the office and say, "This place is a mess! You guys need to clean it!" I wonder if there will ever be a resident who takes on the task of cleaning out 20+ years of junk. If it happens, I bet it will be a woman.
Fizzy, I really hope you're wrong. I encourage the women in my office to make an effort not to get into the habit doing tasks like thatReplyDelete
Jules: I just can't envision a male resident ever cleaning that room (or anything). So I'm guess if it ever happens, it will have to be a female resident.ReplyDelete
knowing my obsessive cleaning behavior...i would probably clean it out =/ReplyDelete
