Thank You Grand Rounds 6.22

Thank You MDWhistleblower for hosting Grand Rounds Volume 6, Number 22 and including my article Hospitalization Increases Fractures In Elders.

On the web, Grand Rounds is the weekly collection of the best on-line medical posts from the past week.

A hospital is no place to go if you are sick. MDWhistleblower writes,
"Jolie Bookspan in The Fitness Fixer … reminds us that we often overlook certain aspects of health in our hospitalized patients." Click to learn what to know and avoid.

MDWhistleblower began this week's Grand Rounds with a hilarious and all-too-often accurate description of actual Grand Rounds in a hospital, which is a lecture for doctors about a patient or topic. I have been one of the lecturers for real Grand Rounds at a prestigious (yet callous and injurious) teaching hospital where I thought I could lecture and change things. Oh, so funny ideas I get some times.

Thank you to this week's host for doing the hard work of collecting and featuring our articles.
