The most sensible comment so far.

Hmm. A health care analogy worth sharing is point of care testing - eg blood gas machines. The medic goes straight up to the device, uses it, often with a shared pin code, and then breaks it. The clinical scientist RTFMs first and doesn’t break it. Example of the thought process of the former. “I have some blood in a plastic syringe. It takes more than a few minutes to clot. I don’t need a sample with an anti-coagulant added, The machine will analyse it before it clots”. Then the blood hits wet.warm glass inside the instrument. And the young medic gets a lesson on the effects of disseminated intravascular coagulation... (The clinical scientist has to fix the instrument).
