Do You Want To Know A Secret?

The New York Times health blog has a post up on "7 Secrets of the Emergency Room," which links to more so-called secrets in Reader's Digest.

Most people pass through the ER at some point in the lives, either as a patient or with a patient, so I'm all for educating the public about what to expect.

I am a little nonplussed, however, when several of these tips amount to "don't lie" and "be nice," especially to the people who are working to keep you alive.

Those aren't secrets - it's called common sense.
