Hospital to replace doctors with Parents doing Internet rese

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – A large tertiary care center in Sydney, Australia is pulling out all the stops to try and cut their expenses. As of next month, all doctors and nurses currently on staff will be replaced by parents who have done research on the Internet.

“I can’t tell you how happy and relieved I am when a patient tells me they have done some research on the internet” said head of neurology, Dr. Eric Sheppard. “It’s only topped by a patient telling me they have a family member who is a nurse.”

The hospital is excited about how much money this move should save them, not to mention the overwhelming support from parents everywhere.

“This is a great move in my opinion” said anti-vaccer Meryl Dorey. “Most parents know more than doctors anyways, so this is a huge step in the right direction.”

The current staff are in the process of being moved to other less innovative health centers.

Oh! I thought it was real. LOL I do try and research on-line and then take my "findings" to the doctor and discuss it with her. I feel like we're partners when it comes to my health and my sons health.

It was a satirical article made with regards to the parents who don't vaccinate their kids because of feeling they know more than their doctors due to their "research" on the Internet. I personally find the Internet very useful but there is so much mis-information out there that people just believe without any common sense.

This is another satirical one. http://www.dhmo.org/facts.html

Note that this is an article about the "dangers of water" that actually sparked an anti DHMO group similar to the anti-BPA one.
