The Medical Examiner recently posted an article voicing concerns of doctors bullying nurses. One nurse’s experience:
“A nurse reported that the ﬁnal sponge count was incorrect after a difﬁcult tubal ligation. The physician was sarcastic and said that an expensive x-ray would be ordered because the nurse obviously suffered from obsessive compulsive disorder. A sponge was found in the patient.”
Why is appropriate and effective communication taught to nurses but not physicians?
