these paraprofessionals are nice and sweet to patients, but lack in judgment, wisdom, and skills of the physical exam and what the signs and symptoms mean.
i though that the iom report was going to comment on the poorly usable ehrs and cpoes that nurses now nurse as another patient, detracting from their time with the real patient.
doctors have abdicated their responsibilities and have promoted the nps and pas by paying them ridiculous salaries to charade with white coats, to enter cut and paste progress notes, and to click in orders on the high risk cpoe systems (the clinical decision support and unproven pre fabbed order sets enable an illusion of safety).
doctors should fire all of their pas and nps and get real.
