In response to a reader's response to David Burda's "Reporter's notebook: EHRs put some docs on edge":In reply to Jo Kriynovich, who is "sick to death" of physicians who do not show up for her training sessions. Did it occur to you that the doctors might actually be sidelined by some inconsequential thing like saving lives? I know that a nurse who actually works regular shifts of 8-12 hours would not get this, but some doctors such as my husband are on call 24/7 on nights when there is no other coverage.
Sometimes little things like dying patients are a priority. I know that this is hard to understand for hourly wage people who actually get paid for training time, but doctors just don't have those luxuries. I am "sick to death" of nurses like you who are so nauseatingly sanctimonious.
