In Houston, MRSA accounts for 60% of all the S. aureus in town. For those not in medicine:
  1. MRSA = methicillin resistant Staphlococcus aureus = very bad bacteria that can kill you if not treated properly.
  2. MRSA will not be killed by the old school antibiotics like Augmentin, Keflex, etc.
  3. Good pediatricians should know the above information.
But hey, if you're not from around here, or didn't train around here, the MD might not know. Fair enough. However, ONLY A RETARD gets mad when I alert you, as the primary pedi, about the above facts.

Hey buddy, if you wanna get sued (and/or kill the patient) 'cause you're too proud to listen to some FRIENDLY ADVICE that's not my problem. I'm still gonna admit your patient, treat with appropriate antibiotics and disregard anything stoopid coming out of your mouth. Don't yell at me. I'm just trying to help.

Why use the word "retarded"? Would you use this phrase around someone with a cognitive delay? You are insulting people who have been given the clinical diagnosis of "retardation".
