Accurate, yet backhanded slogans for your hospital

  1. At one of the hospitals I trained at the slogan (which was literally hung over the street and pasted everywhere) was ‘Amazing Things Are Happening Here’. My friends and I always joked that it was missing an ellipsis: ‘Amazing … Things Are Happening Here’

  2. Haha, that same hospital- after a medico-leagal trainwreck ( patient vegetative state after prolonged hypotension peri-procedure) , apparently one of the automated BP monitors in question went missing. one of the attendings I was working with learnt about this and in the most deadpan way just proclaimed amazing things happen here.

  3. Heh... makes me think of Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy grumping about the 1980s hospital being in the dark ages.

  7. “Our hospital is the only Leapfrog Grade A in town! We have zero nosocomial infections because we don’t do cultures on inpatients!”

  8. I always claimed that the motto of the hospital where I did residency was: “The System is Down.” The mission statement was: “That’s Not My Job.”

  10. HCA made one and put it on tshirts all on their own. They say "We show up." Yep, we're physically present. Best we can do.

  11. After a particularly hellish night where I was unable to do anything in the way of patient education, I told the director of nursing that we provided quantity care, not quality care as they'll all be re-admitting.
