In Medicine - Competence Is Often Measured By The Ability to Remember

“These experiences but emphasize the importance of an efficient routine... in every operating room. Even if your... methods are so perfected that only one death occurs in sixteen thousand... that one life is well worthy of watchfulness and care and preparation with every patient of the series. It is with sad memories of lives lost because I was not prepared or efficient that I would speak to you with impressive earnestness.” - W. Wayne Babcock, M.D 1924
