  3. Yelling Doctors, How do you handle them?????
    This topic needs to be discussed IMO. Poor treatment by the very people that need you to remain in practice gets very old in itself. I agree we have satisfied the topic as far as Tired MD's piece,...

  4. Yelling Doctors, How do you handle them?????

  5. Yelling Doctors, How do you handle them?????
    Of course I've yelled at people when frustrated, but in retrospect I know it was not an effective way to communicate. It was a mistake in judgement during a time of my own stress.

    I can remember one doc I used to work with...very smart, great surgeon and a total perfectionist with a tendency to yell loudly no matter where he was when he was frustrated. One super busy day he...

    "There's a tendency on this board to equate yelling with some kind of hideous assault that leaves people emotionally scarred. I've never understood that, and personally I'm grateful I've never worked...

  13. I'm supposed to wear an "Ask me if I washed my hands!" button?!
    All great suggestions MIZZ...the problem with hospital policies and campaigns like these is they never seem to ask the people who could truly help put an effective policy in place...the nurses!

  14. Are you a nurse from a dysfunctional family?
    I used to think nurses were more dysfunctional that the general population, but have reconsidered that stance. I think when you are with nurses day in day out, you get to know them and start thinking...

  17. Please interpret this med order
    The doctor is saying the patient can have 15mg/Q3h. I like these orders. This allows the patient to take only what they need. If they ask for a portion of the Q3h dosage and find more is needed...

  18. Please interpret this med order
    It's a clear order. You may give up to 15 mg/3h depending on the patients response. Think about how PCA works; the patient can deliver as much med as is needed over time, so long as it is within a...

  22. What medical shows do you watch?
    Why is it that nurses secretly love the jerkiest docs? They really do...and they don't have to look like Hugh Laurie either! I love House, too, but can you imagine working with that guy?!
