WSJ Health Blog Goofs!

The Wall Street Journal Health Blog has now corrected its previous post on the AMA House of Delegates voting in favor of a ban on white coats. The official AMA response (on p. 15 of this document) was to refer the resolution to another committee for further study. As I stated in a previous posting, it would have been surprising for the AMA to pass the resolution given the AMA's generally conservative approach, coupled with the iconic status of the white coat for the profession. Nonetheless, I still believe it makes sense to hang up those germ-laden coats for good.
