Fourth of July
Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, is a national holiday that celebrates that signing of the Declaration of Independence back in 1776. It is not a holiday celebrating the exquisite work of July interns. It is a celebration of Fs - family, friends, fireworks, flags, and flair - though some emergency rooms have made it a pastime to refuse taking care of patients with self-inflicted fireworks injuries on the Fourth of July. It is also common to see special-edition pagers and call lights that play the National Anthem or Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A."
Life, Liberty, and Opioid Pain Medicine
On March 28, 2016, an earlier draft of the Declaration of Independence was discovered, which proclaimed "Life, Liberty, and opioid pain Medicine" as inalienable human rights.
Fourth of July Traditions
One of the most well-known traditions is the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, where male and female competitors race to consume as many hot dogs as possible (with bun) in 10 minutes with the winner getting exclusive rights to an immediate cardiac catheterization.
