In my opinion, clinicians can wear our white coats in the hallways of the hospital and medical school, and when we are protesting social injustice, but we should hang them up when we are examining patients, to reduce nosocomial transmission of bacteria. We should organize and mobilize to improve patient safety and access to high-quality health care. Like Rosie the Riveter during World War II, we can “roll up our sleeves” and get the job done. Health care for all!
