As I lay thinking. . .
When I was through surgery on Monday, I awoke connected to many tubes. Each had a different purpose,shape, and length. And movement was difficult because I kept tangling them up. The gowns are now made so every kind of tube can be attached to a body, through,over, under the gown. I wonder how it would be if somebody like Steve jobs thought about this issue and designed ways to plug patients in without threatening them with strangulation. Sometimes I think apple products are a little too "elegant" and would like just a little more instruction and less reliance on intuition (our intuitions do not always see things the same way). Nevertheless, I think an apple-designed hospital could revolutionize healthcare.
