Notes from Steve

This is hospital week. This is the week where you all – for all the incredibly meaningful and difficult work you do on a 24/7, 365 basis – are to be acknowledged and recognized. AWESOME JOB! However, you do incredibly meaningful and difficult work all the time and truly, I...

Notes from Steve

Someone was complaining somewhere recently about starting a sentence with “So ….” I do this often, and two things come to mind. One, “Complainers, get a life!” This comment came from the “2 Cents Worth” column in the Des Moines Register. People have been putting their 2 cents worth of...
