St. Peter, MN – Physician on FIRE, an anesthesiologist and financial blogger, recently hit the magical goal of Financial Independence and Retire Early (FIRE) in his mid 40s. Once he achieved ‘FIRE status’ JACHO and hospital administration determined he was too much of a fire risk to be in the operating room.
“I’m sorry if you are over a fire risk score of 4 you can’t be in the OR,” charge nurse Jackie told reporters.
Last week during the pre-surgical time out the anesthesiologist or “Physician on FIRE” stated the fire risk score was “on FIRE!”
He then lifted a 20mL syringe of propofol in a horizontal fashion, and performed a “mic drop.” He then proceeded to provide anesthesia for the patient in a safe, effective manner until completion of surgery.
When the patient was transferred to the PACU he proceeded to moon-walk out of the hospital, to the envy of physicians everywhere.
“He can’t be in the OR anymore,” Jackie repeated. “He’s too much of a FIRE risk.”
Yes he is. He is on FIRE.
