Evil Doctors

Almost ALL the nurses I have met are wonderful people and are more than nice to their patients. But, in my limited experience, it seems that doctors, at best, are indifferent to their patients and satanists to their nurses.

Do they rest of you find this generalization to be mostly true?

No, I do not find the generalization to be true at all.

I have to say that I have met very few doctors who don't care about thier patients, as with all professions you get your good and bad and it's never a good idea to generalise.

I have not found doctors to be indifferent to their patients or to the nursing staff. Generalizations to me show either ignorance or prejudice in my estimation.

One bad experience or one bad apple , does make make every doctor, or nurse for that matter bad.

Thankfully, no, that hasn't been the case where I practice. I find the doctors I work with to be generally caring and devoted to their patients. Even the occasional nutjob dr we get, may be evil to nurses but is pretty caring for his patients.

I would have to say I've known at least as many evil/insane/uncaring nurses as I have doctors.

I don't find this generalization to be true, either. As someone else stated, with all professions you're gonna have your good apples and your bad seeds. I believe things may be this way where you work because it is tolerated and no one has tried to correct the behavior. In the hospitals where I work, we are now starting new guidelines in team communications among the disciplines to adhere to the new Joint Commission requirements, but for the most part, the doctors and nurses respect each other and work together anyway. There are just the few docs that have the God complex going on, but thats rare.

Lest we forget, hospitals are businesses of healthcare. So, the hospital Admins are the one's that typically define the "business culture" of their institutions...for better or for worse. Many hospitals encourage physicians and nurses to see each other as colleagues...with the same goal...quality health care...and expect them to work and communicate together as being on the same team. But, many hospitals still are guilty of encouraging the separation/distance between the two professions. Eventually, these type of hospitals will become tomorrow's dinosaurs.

most of the doctors that i have know or worked with are verying caring about their patients and have respect for the nurses

everyone has a bad day and sometimes will be frustrated when they find that an order has slipped through the cracks and they tend to blame the nurse telling them about the order not carried out even if it is not their fault

i have see doctors who i wouldn't trust to treat a loved one but this in not true of the majority

Do they rest of you find this generalization to be mostly true?

Not at all in my very limited experience. I haven't met any "evil" physicians. I have met a couple "evil" nurses, though. (Evil=passive aggressive catty nutjobs)

But, in my limited experience, it seems that doctors, at best, are indifferent to their patients and satanists to their nurses.

I was going to respond, but then I realized I just didn't care enough to write anything.

Plus I have to slaughter this goat before I can call on the dark lord to curse the souls of the the ER nurses.

No, I don't find this to be true. Not saying that you've had your share of indifferent docs though.

No, I've found the vast majority of doctors that I've worked with to care a lot about their patients-- if they didn't, there's no way I would have gone into medicine. Likewise, I've found that the vast majority of nurses care a lot about their patients.

I've run into both doctors and nurses who scare the living daylights out of me.-- that's life. So to the OP, stop trying to stir the pot.

The doctors I work with are amazing and are certainly not evil in anyway. They're certainly very polite to nurses.

It might be a cultural thing, in NZL if you're a doctor and you **** off the nurses you don't last very long and you get nothing done for you.
