(My apologies for the poor image- a few technical difficulties)
I recently purchased this pocket guide for my next rotation. Before I ripped into the package, I read the warning on the plastic wrap. Wow! I have never seen this kind of warning label on anything I have purchased before, especially a book. Amazon did fail to disclose this potentially fatal health hazard in the description.
'WARNING: THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS A CHEMICAL KNOWN TO THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA TO CAUSE CANCER AND BIRTH DEFECTS OR OTHER REPRODUCTIVE HARM.'
Well, I decided to take my chances. I'll be carrying this green book of kryptonite with me on my next clinical rotation- a combined Medical ICU/Cardiothoracic ICU.
Who knew that becoming a health care professional could be hazardous to your health?
