The Knights of the Round Table

Charge Given to the Knights by King Google*

God make you a good men and women and fail not of beauty. The Round Table was founded in patience, humility, and meekness. Thou art never to do outrageousity, nor murder, and always to flee treason, by no means to be cruel, and always to do patients, the elderly, and gentle children succour. Also, to take no battles in a wrongful quarrel for no law nor for no world's goods, except for fee for clicks.

Thous shouldst be for all nurses, doctors and patients and fight for their quarrels, and ever be courteous and never refuse mercy to them that asketh mercy, for a knight that is courteous and kind and gentle has favor in every place. Thou shouldst never hold a medical record, patient, nurse or gentle caregiver against their will.

Thou must keep thy word to all and not be feeble of good believeth and faith. Right (and privacy) must be defended against might and distress must be protected. Thou must know good from evil and the vain glory and profit motives of the world, because great pride and bobance maketh great sorrow. Should anyone require ye of any quest so that it is not to thy shame, thou shouldst fulfil the desire by asking medical bloggers and patients themselves.

Ever it is a worshipful knight’s deed to help another worshipful patient with search engines when he seeth him a great danger, for ever a worshipful man should loath to see a patient misinformed, for it is only he that is of no knowledge and who faireth with cowardice that shall never show gentleness or no manner of goodness where he seeth a patient in any danger, but always a good man will do another man as he would have done to himself.

Do not, nor slay not, anything that will in any way dishonor the fair name of the US Healthcare System for only by stainless and honorable lives and not by prowess, conflicts of interest, and courage shall the final goal be reached. Therefore be a good knight and so I pray to God so ye may be, and if ye be of prowess and of worthiness then ye shall be a Knight of the Table Round.
