    Default Obama-appointed Surgeon General ousted and replaced by a nurse

    Obama-appointed U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy resigned on Friday after the Trump administration asked him to step down. He was replaced by a nurse, Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams.
    According to a statement made by the Department of Health and Human Services, “Dr. Murthy has been relieved of his duties as Surgeon General and will continue to serve as a member of the Commissioned Corps. (Health and Human Services) Secretary [Tom] Price thanks him for his dedicated service to the nation. Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams, who is the current Deputy Surgeon General, will serve as the acting Surgeon General and assume leadership of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.”

    I'm curious how things will be different with a nurse in this position. Nurses have a different focus from doctors. I'm also curious if this is a first. Haven't had time to check yet.

    She does seem very well qualified. When I went through eight emergency admissions in the summer/fall of 2014, I found the nurses at two hospitals better informed on general health and nutrition than the M.D.s.
