Subacutis placementicus is the most common species of hospitalists.
When on service, they can be spotted in their natural habitat: the inpatient floors of any health care facility. On those floors, 90% of their time is spent in front of a computer while the other 10% is dedicated to direct patient care. When members of Subacutis placementicus are done with their duties on the medical duties or off service, they often embark upon a diaspora and are often not found within 10-country radius of their home base.
