A phone call doesn't cut it in my opinion.

Ashamed to say it, I still struggle with the walk-all-over-me syndrome. (Only in nursing that is!) While I've never had a doc yell at me, I still feel I have to grovel when I call a doc in the middle of the night. WHY DO I FEEL THIS WAY??
I've been a nurse for only two years. I hope I get over it soon!
Mollymo, I hope if I encounter your situation, I'll respond just as you did!!

Lacy, can you get standing orders for this guys post ops so you don't have to deal with him so often?
Mollymo, I applaud you for standing up to that Doc.
