Listening To Nurses Is Key To Being A Good Doctor, by Doctor Grumpy, MD, KevinMD

Listening To Nurses Is Key To Being A Good Doctor, by Doctor Grumpy, MD, KevinMD:"I started out in medicine in the mid-80?s, volunteering at an ER. And the biggest shock to me was learning how much of what happens in a hospital is nurse territory. Doctors will see you anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes a day, depending on how sick you are. And the rest is the nurses. They're the ones making sure you get your pills and checking that your vital signs aren't dropping. They make sure you don't fall down and break something. If you start vomiting, doctors will run out of the room and the nurses will rush in. They change your wound dressings and start your IV line. They'll bring you a warm blanket. And clean disgusting things off you. Even if you're drunk. Or delirious. Or mean. And through all of this they try be friendly and positive. Even though you aren't their only sick patient."
