Thanks to all of you who responded to my etc. post. I had, as I thought I
would, varying opinions on when and where to use etc. which ranged from
using it sparingly, to never use, to use it depending on my audience. I
decided to do away with many instances of when I used etc. but I kept it in
some areas talking about hospital equipment, beds, IVs, x-rays, etc. Thanks
again for the wealth of opinions and thanks to those who responded with a
subjective without flaming me for bringing up a topic that was discussed
several months back. Thanks again techwr-lers!!!!!!!!
