    the majority of my career was spent in ltc. the md's i worked with the majority of the time relied heavily on the nurses assessments and recommendations. these docs were required to come in and see the residents like once every 60 days. i work now with a pediatric neurologist in a private practice. she respects my opinions. and we talk all the time.

    just curious. does anyone work on a unit or in a facility in which there is true collaboration between the nurses and physicians? one in which the doctors really care to listen to what you have to say and value your opinion and actually discuss with you treatment options for the patient? also, do you feel that you have a measure of control and autonomy in your work environment? (or, is it 'management's/doctor's way or the highway'...)

    Yes I work in a facility that has really good communication between docs and nurses and respiratory staff and the nurse aids too. But cover your eyes as I work in a Specialty Care Center, yes what most people call a nursing home.
    Far from my first job, and not where I thought I would be 10 years ago.
