This little story came to mind after I got the letter from corporate regarding a team of "efficiency experts" they're bringing in to the hospital. (*sigh*)

"Efficient Breakfast"

The efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution: "You don't want to try these techniques at home."

"Why not?" asked someone from the back of the audience.

"I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years," the expert explained. "She made lots of trips to the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying just a single item at a time. 'Hon,' I suggested, 'Why don't you try carrying several things at once?'"

The voice from the back asked, "Did it save time?"

The expert replied, "Actually, yes. It used to take her 20 minutes to get breakfast ready. Now I do it in seven."

I wonder if this could be used in reverse. When a Doc is doing a procedure, could we let him get his own supplies? Then maybe we won't have to make 25 trips to the supply room :devil
