- Feb 8, '12 by PMFB-RN[QUOTE=Hampter320;6124759 A patient escort sitting in an exam room with a patient during a history and physical exam is a blatant HIPPA violation and I promise you no physician would allow it on a regular basis, unless every single patient provides written documentation that it's ok for you to be there with them. So I call BS.[/QUOTE]
*** What is a patient escort? Something very different than a nurse orCNA? My doctors will absolutly NOT be alone in a room with a patient. When they go in we (RNs or CNA) go in. If we can't then they wait for us. This is an ER.
- Feb 9, '12 by leenakI joke with my husband that I want to be called Doctor Nurse one day. Although I'm not sure I'd pursue a DNP if I had another choice but by the time I'm done with my BSN, I'm sure most of the NP programs will be converted over to DNP.
I think of Physician as the title that is valid for a MD, correct?
I mean we have clinical doctors in other professions like physical therapy, dentistry, veterinary medicine, podiatry, chiropractic care, etc, I don't see the big deal about DNP. Then there are D.O. doctors which I only learned about fairly recently, do MDs have an issue with them being called Doctor?
I don't know, it would seem confusing to me as a patient to think everyone as nurse from the LVN to the NP. Their roles are obviously quite different but they are 'nurse'.
I personally don't care about titles so it doesn't matter to me in terms of a title but there are lots of Doctors who aren't MDs and are clinical Drs.
- Feb 9, '12 by sweetnurse63This doctor talks like he is unsure of himself and he is intimidated by the fact that nurses are highly educated professionals that did not have to spend 8 to 10 yrs in medical school. Nurses do not compare to doctors we have two different scopes of practice but we all should be on the same team with one goal in mind which is to help patients cope with their illnesses and to promote healing. I have a problem with any one who makes other people feel like they are way less important because they have lesser education. I have seen so many doctors who walk around with an arrogant and egotistical attitude and some of them are not approachable, but on the other hand , I have met some doctors who are really down to earth, humble and kind. Doctors and nurses are important to healthcare, one can not function without the other and for those doctors that feel like they can do it all by themselves, let them imagine healthcare without nurses, it would be total chaos, the heaalth care system would shut down, it would be a big mess!!!! So, I don't have to have a medical degree to know that I, as a nurse make a difference and is a valued member of healthcare.
