recently i wrote a column entitled, "forget about that tree: hug your physician." my intention was to draw attention to a growing concern that physicians are working under increased pressure -specifically, long working hours, increased stress, falling incomes, growing practice expenses, and hunted like rabbits by your local trial lawyer.
although i stand by the article, i came under some considerable fire by more than a few nurses who thought i was indifferent to the plight of the registered professional nurse. i will admit to being a little defensive at first. these comments from nurses originated from all over the united states. bad news travels fast. their perception was that this hospital ceo in suburban pittsburgh was fawning over his medical staff and insensitive to the challenges facing professional nursing.
call me sensitive, but i felt lower than the dirt on the bottom of my shoes....

LOL> Looks like our letters to him had an impact. Now its only fair that we also send him feedback about this one. They cant only hear from us when we have a complaint. Hes asked for feedback from nurses:
<<To the nurses who read this article, I would request that you send to me your thoughts and suggestions with regard to this dilemma.
