How do you tell a doc when it’s time to go?
We have a doctor that, without going into major detail, has a neurological disorder which affects his concentration and ability to stay on task, among other things. He’s the one who will allow charts to be “in the rack” for many hours while he places seemingly useless phone calls at 3 in the morning to on-call physicians on convenience care patients who aren’t sick to let them know he is discharging the patient. He’ll call specialists before doing a workup to ask what work-up he should do on seemingly straightforward patients.
Read the rest, and wonder. And, I don’t know how that conversation would go, and who should be the one to do it. Oh, and it’s not Nurse Kelly.
