Bad Bosses = Bad Health

...or so I have heard.
One of our Medics just had a heart cath done. Why? Well, he went to his PCP complaining of shortness of breath and tightness across the chest, which only occurred ironically enough, at work... still, around here that's enough to get you set to the cath lab.
Turns out "Tony" is fine, his heart is fine- it's his career that sucks. His doctors recommendation? That is correct- get a new job, out of EMS. 'Bye Tony...

Here are a couple of links with some more info...
