On my visit to Cleveland clinic, I had in mind that Cleveland was all about drugs and medicines, like other normal procedures that am used to my day to day visit to hospital whenever am sick or escorting someone there. At Cleveland, it was beyond my expectations that it was not all about medicine and other medical procedures. Cleveland has incorporated the invention of the new technology that has made work easier in its facilities. One of the most surprising and fascinating encounter that I had experienced is Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs). It took me by surprise how this vehicles or I would rather call them ( Felder, pg 1540) robots how they carried different types of loads to different destinations. The AGVs move along a programmed path by the aid of magnetic strips, radio frequencies, sensors or lasers. The servers sense the address on the destination the load is supposed to be taken and sends it to the server to allow transit. The AGVs project cost about $5.4 million in a year and they travel about 678 miles in a day.
Another interesting thing about Cleveland is that they receive different things on their procurement sector such as drugs and human organs such as eyes, human skin, kidneys and many other body organ tissues of a human being. In my experience, I never saw a human eye dissected from the sockets of the human skull. Imagine of a human skin stripped from a human body. These among other things scared me a little bit till I had a second thought on my career path of being a doctor. This also answered the questions I have been loading my head with about people selling human organs. We also managed to learn that Cleveland clinic have about $ 1.8 billion in their inventory. Finally, the visit helped me clear the doubts I had about my career as a doctor and somehow prepared me on what things to expect in my career path.
