Resident physicians at Stanford Health Care have a very serious grouse: They say their working conditions are so strained that some of the doctors must work second jobs after putting in 80 hours a week at Stanford Hospital.

Heck I doubt that even Picasso put much more than 40 hours a week into his studio work, what with the bullfights, cafés, and women, etc. I don't know the solution but perhaps Standfurd went a bit overboard on their medical juggernaut. I can't complain because I got a free perfect new hip joint there courtesy of the staff, facilities, and Medicaid. Thank you to all concerned. I was using a walker, bone on bone, one leg becoming two inches shorter. Now I'm training to run a marathon, with legs within 1 millimeter. Boomers surely hitting the services like gangbusters, so guessing they've ramped up for the following decades. I intend to drop by again on my 100th birthday or thereabouts or earlier if indicated. I hear El Camino in Mt View spins out superb results as well. We know of course that avoiding staff burnout is crucial to gaining positive treatment outcomes.

Big surprise. Stanford is and always has been a ruthlessly self-aggrandizing business enterprise with the prominent and reputation-washing side hustles of a university and a hospital.
