What happened to that baby drawer, did one get their finger caught? (grin). When you think of it though, really not a bad idea at all in concept. The records reach the doctor before the patient does. A medical dream come true from Henry Kaiser and Dr. Sidney Garfield of the Kaiser Foundation.
The operating room light is interesting too and even then they were talking about “green” grounds, maybe not the way we think green today but it was mentioned. It’s kind of interesting to take a look back and see how it compares with today, watching dad sit around puffing away in the waiting room. Things were a bit different a number of years ago. BD
