Thank you for your Jan. 5 editorial ("It's time to refocus on job one," p. 3). It really helped me refocus. As a past clinician now in the business end, I find myself too concerned about just numbers.
As the editorial pointed out, the main focus must be on serving our patients as the core of all our actions.
Regarding your thoughtful editorial of Jan. 5 in which you urge those of us in healthcare to think of 1998 as "the year of the patient," I offer up a hearty "amen!"
