When Docs get "Short Timers Disease"
There's this doc who will be leaving us shortly, who just doesn't seem to care anymore about how he treats his patients. In and out they come and go. A head lac, not cleaned, skin just pushed around a bit and stapled. No "nurse please irrigate this wound" but of course we do it anyway. No signed orders, writes for prednisone taper despite us writing down that the patient already takes 50mg daily. Why do we assess and document for it to be ignored? August 31st can't come to soon for this doc!
