"Medicine... the IT of humanity...?" Does that include turning the humans off and then on again?! I'm not sure that strategy works particularly well... ;-)

I work in IT. The "emergency" calls are ridiculous, including the all too common....is it plugged in? People expect an IT person to know everything about every program or piece of hardware that has ever existed and assume that every problem has a simple "flip a switch" fix.

This person needs to find another line of work. They are burned out. My mom worked as an ER nurse for years when I was a kid. She knew it was time to go when she got like this person. A lot of what is wrong in E.R.s in America is because of our poor healthcare system. Overbooked General practitioners, specialists with year long waiting lists and deductibles that are so high people wait until they absolutely have to go somewhere.

I left nursing and went into forensics. The work was much less stressful. I still have trouble eating rice though.
