It’s Friday after a week full of candy from Halloween. Given all the candy that’s been consumed this week, I thought Doc Vader’s most recent rant on CHF Bouncebacks was quite appropriate for a Fun Friday post. Doc Vader takes a swipe at scribes at the same time too (literally if you count lightsabers to the head, but watch to see what I mean). Check out the video below to see what I mean.

Unfortunately, I don’t think shame is the answer. I’m not sure a video like this is the answer either though. However, the popeyes piece gave me a good laugh. Plus, the best part is the comments on YouTube. Go and check them out and you can see that ZDoggMD’s videos really resonate with doctors. Here’s a sample of one that was hard to believe:

One time, a scribe didn’t know a diagnosis so she went with what she “thought it sounded like” and we ended up getting a call from the CDC because what she “thought it sounded like” was varicella major

And this one that’s even harder to believe:

On the scribe note: we had a patient with the surname Noenglish. Because I am pretty sure the scribe just heard the patient say “No English” when he/she asked the patient their surname.

I guess it’s fair to say that not all scribes are created equal. Not all doctors are either which is obvious when you watch Doc Vader in action.

Time again for another Fun Friday entry as we head into the weekend. This week we tapped into the most comedic doctor out there, ZDoggMD. Well, I guess it’s actually his alter ego Doc Vader, but you get the idea (and if you don’t get the idea, you should find ZDoggMD’s parody videos and watch them).

For this week’s Fun Friday video check out this video with Doc Vader talking about Integrative Medicine (not to be confused with integrated medicine or collaborative medicine with your doctor):

The incomparable ZDoggMD has been creating a whole series of videos for his alter ego’s alter ego, Doc Vader and has even launched a website for Doc Vader. There are some really funny videos and a lot of them touch on healthcare IT.

The latest Doc Vader video is called Doctors Without Planets:

What’s amazing is that the Doc Vader character actually came out of a sponsored video that ZDoggMD did with Dr First. Here’s the Doc Vader, Episode 1: The Pager Menace video that started the character:

Happy Friday everyone and thanks to ZDoggMD for putting out such funny content.
