After reading about the report thread I got to thinking, why do we hate admissions? Has it been since the documentation expanded to 4-6 pages on one admission? Is it because we are not prepared for them or do not get adequate notice they are coming?? Is it because they are so very time consuming? Is it because we know we will spend at least 2-4 hours to get the entire admission completed which includes notifying the MD and getting the orders verified? Is it the family that we have to deal with to make sure all of their needs are met as well as the patients?? Why??
