I too am dissapointed with Doctors or Resident Doctors that write orders based on the CC. Causing the nurse to appear to do things that aren't needed, when in reality she must explain and make the patient believe the doctor ordered it and Yes with out even seeing you the Patient. Often patients have multiple CC's or needs but the doctor only wants to address one or two CC per visit causing the patient to need to return for multiple visits, the patients then become angry with nurses and blame us for their dissatisfaction. In addition the doctors often want their nurse to complete a bit of their work for them. They want us to pend all of their orders (example: if we think the patient needs this or that, medication refills, immunizations, foot exams, Blood Pressure Check visits, Diabetes needs, GYN needs ETC., which ends up causing the nurse to spend more time than she is allowed with the patient and I say allowed because we are penalized too based on our time, (causing her/him to appear slow or inadequate) decreasing the Doctors time with the patient. The nurse is expected to greet patients, answer phone calls, collect vitals, room patients, collect vital information, pend orders, assist doctors with exams, conduct nurse visits, give injections, run all over the clinic to collect medications and or supplies needed, assist during emergencies, help other staff as needed, make appointments for patients, discharge patients. AND to top it off always smile and avoid appearing rushed while seeing a minimum of 20 to 25 patients a day, if there are nurse visits for that day it could mean 25 to 30 patients scheduled in a day. HELP yes you did go to school longer than us, and you are the Doctor, but where would you be without your nurse? SO Please treat us like we are people not robots!
