    An Entire African Nation, Covered In Post-Its

    A growing number of hospitals are giving up Big Pharma schwag for good. Here's one that went the extra mile.

    MINNEAPOLIS - When a Duluth-based operator of hospitals and clinics purged the pens, notepads, coffee mugs and other promotional trinkets drug companies had given its doctors over the years, it took 20 shopping carts to haul the loot away.

    The operator, SMDC Health System, intends to ship the 18,718 items to the west African nation of Cameroon.

    Thanks, Yahoo.

    19718 items? Holy bought and sold, Batman! The medical profession is under constant assault.
