“It’s my job to do the very best we can with pa­tients in this prac­tice. Ex­pos­ing that small per­cent who don’t vac­ci­nate to those who do is a dis­ser­vice.”

—Dr. Harry Miller, a pe­di­a­tri­cian with Four Sea­sons Pe­di­atrics in Clifton Park, N.Y., whose prac­tice stopped treat­ing un­vac­ci­nated

chil­dren last year, in the Washington Post. “It’s prob­a­bly one of the most dif­fi­cult ar­eas of medicine to prac­tice in. On top of that, you’ve got this ca­coph­ony in the back­ground that at times gets quite an­noy­ing. ... The noise lev­els def­i­nitely, with­out a doubt, con­trib­ute to I would say both er­ror and burnout amongst all health pro­fes­sion­als.”

—Dr. Louis Hugo Frances­cutti, of Royal Alexan­dra Hos­pi­tal, Edmonton, Al­berta, in the National Post, com­ment­ing on a new study find­ing that the con­stant noise in a hos­pi­tal ER was equiv­a­lent

to that of a vac­uum cleaner.
