In the society today, people are more ignorant and they actually rely on doctors whenever they meet such situations. They have the idea that doctors are meant to save people no matter how risky a situation is. However, most people do not know the consequences behind all these. This universal notion has become something so common in the recent years. I personally felt that doctors are innocent in such situations. They should not be blamed whenever they vow not to help the accident victims.
Instead, legal community such as lawyers are individuals who we should point the finger at. Legal community has placed physicians into positions where hesitation and fear come along in their everyday life. No doubt that doctors should be responsible to help those who are in need, however, with the strict laws and pressure exerted by this legal community, you wouldn't be surprise that most doctors would choose not to risk their own life or career just to save another stranger. This human nature is inevitable. However, if the situation changes; doctors would not be blamed or sued by the legal community, I would assure that there wouldn't be such a problem anymore. Even if something that was not expected happens, at least doctors have tried their best rather than not putting an effort to give a try at all. Legal community should stop this immediately and considers the consequences and adverse effects which affected not only the doctors but also the society. No one knows when he or she will be one of the victims next. This should be stopped immediately so that the world would change for the…...

Poll Results: Doctor’s Disruptive Behavior Disturbs Physician Leaders

...The article Poll Results: Doctor’s Disruptive Behavior Disturbs Physician Leaders written by David O. Weber examines the relationship between physicians and medical staff. The American College of Physician Executives produced a survey in 2004 where approximately 1600 physician executives revealed insightful information regarding disruptive physician behaviors (Weber, 2004). The American Medical Association defines disruptive behavior as “a style of interaction with physicians, hospital personnel, patients, family members and others that interferes with patient care”. The survey’s questions make it evident that physician behavior problems are common within hospitals, large group practices, healthcare systems and academic medical centers (Weber, 2004). Physician executives responded with alarming statistics that illustrate the need for a change in how physicians conduct themselves. I have never personally observed any disruptive behaviors from physicians, but this article gave me an understanding of what can happen behind the scenes. After reading the article it made me think of my mother when she worked as the office manager for an orthopedic surgeon at Cayuga Medical Hospital in Ithaca, New York. I remember her informing me of a statistic stating that two thirds of nurses claim abuse from physicians several times a year, which is also reinforced in this article. This article made me aware of the effects physician behaviors have on patient care, staff relations, and......

Do Doctor's Communication's Skills Affect Patient Health?

...Do Doctors’ Communication Skills Affect Patient Health? Margarita Michalsky Montana State University Exploring Communications Studies 200 [ April 19, 2014 ] Dr. Daniel D. Gross Abstract One of the biggest complaints that a patient has is their inability to effectively communicate with their physician. A patients’ fear and intimidation of their physician can prevent them from being forthcoming about their symptoms and lifestyle behaviors. In addition, the lack of effective listening that the physician possesses can also limit the patients’ ability to express their needs. Effective communication is imperative to the health outcomes of the patient and this paper will look at how the communication style of the patient’s physician can affect those outcomes. Do Doctors’ Communication Skills Affect Patient Health? Healthcare is always in the news. You cannot turn on your television or pick up a newspaper without seeing something about healthcare. One of the main topics of discussion is the quality of healthcare that patients are receiving from their physicians. However, quality is not solely based on the knowledge of the patient’s physician; it can be also based on the ability of the patient to effectively communicate with their physician. Patients complain that they cannot effectively talk with their physicians because they are either intimidated or they do not feel their physician actually listens to what they say. Thus, do doctors’ communication......

Invention

...be the same size as a hand held metal detector that security guards use outside of clubs. The impact that the HMRIW. would have on the people in the world would be great because it takes away a lot of the reservations that people have about going to the doctor’s office. Of the reservations people have about visiting the doctor’s office is wasting time. People get so frustrated about having to spend time at a doctor’s office just to find out there is nothing wrong with them. The HMRIW would alleviate that frustration from them because they would be able to see for themselves if there is something wrong with them and then make the decision to visit the doctor based on their results they received from their HMRIW. Another way my invention would help people is by saving them money. As we know visiting the doctor’s office cost money rather you have insurance or not, and in today’s financial climate more people are unemployed meaning more than likely they aren’t insured and would have to pay out of pocket to visit the doctor. While my invention wouldn’t eliminate all doctor cost, it would decrease some of the cost because you wouldn’t have to make a visit to receive a MRI. Also the HMRIW sends the results directly to your doctor’s email so the two of you can be on the same page and work in unison if it’s found that you have some health complications. While my invention is not some magical device that saves lives instantly it is very important and would be as impactful on the......

An Essay on "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife"

...An Essay on ”The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife” By Ernest Hemingway Seemingly, masculinity is a big part of men’s identity. Masculinity is usually associated with courage, independence, and assertiveness, and if a man’s pride is discriminated or somehow threatened, he will often do whatever is necessary to regain his pride. Thus, this might result in unethical behaviour. This is dealt with in Ernest Hemingway’s short story “The Doctor and the Doctor’s wife” from 1925 where masculinity is an overall theme and where he uses contrast and his iceberg technique to get his message across. Good intro (but remember to put two writing devices in) As stated, Hemingway illustrates the importance of masculinity for men’s identity in this short story. Firstly, Hemingway employs the importance of pride in male-to-male relationships by focusing on the interaction between the Doctor and the American Indian Dick Boulton. Secondly, Hemingway shows that a man’s pride comes above all, since the Doctor is dishonest to his wife regarding why he had a conflict with Boulton. Lastly, the use of contrast, e.g. the Doctor’s dishonesty as mentioned earlier, between the sexes empathize how masculinity is important to men, and this is what the following essay will be examining through the character of Nick’s father, the Doctor. In the beginning of the short story, the Doctor has hired three American Indians to cut some logs that broke free from a steamer and drifted on the beach. The three......

Convenient Care Clinic's as Your Doctor's Office: a Different Prescription

...Convenient Care Clinic's as Your Doctor's Office: A Different Prescription Janet Meadows Northcentral University Convenient Care Clinic's as Your Doctor's Office: A Different Prescription Larry Merlo, pharmacist and CEO of CVS Health (formerly known as CVS Pharmacy) is on a mission to transform your local pharmacy into a “one stop shop” for your everyday healthcare needs (Hamilton, 2014). Merlo has visions of your local pharmacy (hopefully his pharmacy, namely CVS Health) as a replacement for trips to the physician’s office, urgent care clinics, as well as many unnecessary emergency room visits. If Merlo gets his way, convenient care clinics (CCC’s) such as Minute Clinic’s owned by CVS Health and other such clinics, will do just that (Gray, 2015). As ambitious as this dream is, is it feasible to replace doctor’s office visits with convenient care clinics as an equal source for your healthcare needs? Will CCC’s be able to provide the same quality of care as your local physician? Is it possible for one’s healthcare needs to be met in the same manner as with visits to the doctor’s office? Will there be greater compliance with healthcare needs by using CCC’s? What can be expected by using CCC’s for your healthcare needs instead of the traditional physician’s office visits in which the public is accustomed? There are currently 970 Minute Clinic locations throughout the United States used to diagnose and treat patients along with filling prescriptions and......

...Summary of A Doctor’s Journal Entry for August 6, 1945 by Vikram Seth A Doctor’s Journal Entry for August 6, 1945 by Vikram Seth is a remarkable poem describing the horrors of the aftermath of an atomic bomb explosion. This tragic poem describes the condition of the survivors of the atomic bombing by the United States on Hiroshima during the end of the World War II on 6th of August 1945. The narrator in the poem, A Doctor’s Journal Entry for August 6, 1945, is a doctor. The poem begins with a calm and serene note. The doctor says that it was dawn and he was in his bed, not fully clothed. When he stretched out and looked outside, he saw shining leaves and shadows. In the next moment, there were two sudden flashes of strong light and the old stone lantern in his room lit up by itself. The doctor wondered whether the flashes were magnesium flares seen during a war. In the next moment, the doctor finds out that the roof and wall of his building has collapsed and the debris were scattered all over. Dust covered up the whole place and clothes disappeared from his body. They were burnt. The doctor was wounded on his cheek, thigh and he was bleeding. A piece of glass had entered into his body which he removes ‘detachedly.’ He was wondering what suddenly took place and what had happened to him. The narrator called out his wife, ‘where are you, Yecko-san?’ Yecko-san looked pale, frightened and had blood stains on her body. The doctor assures his wife that they would be fine and......

...forth and sets herself up with a doctor’s appointment where she then goes into an office that to her amazement is plain gray in color and holds nothing within it but a few black chairs and two notes on the wall that state “turn off cell phones” and “have co-pay ready”. Arriving at the doctor’s office Vivian is anxious to express her need for treatment to the assistant at the front desk but is faced with a person whom only interrupts her when she begins to speak, telling her to sit down then calls another patient up to the desk. When Vivian finally called back to see the doctor he starts talking fast and asks her a whole lot of questions at one time, not giving her time to answer them. After the doctor examines her, he prescribes her some medication and tells her she may have an ulcer and then tells her to setup another appointment to have an ultrasound. On her way out the door the doctor asks Vivian if she had any question and because Vivian felt so overwhelmed she said no and just left. Key Players Perspective Patient The patient whose name was Vivian was overwhelmed from the moment she walked in the door. When she first walked in the doctor’s office, Vivian was shocked the décor. The walls were a dull gray and there were only two signs hanging on the walls. This was not very appealing to Vivian. She was already afraid because she was having abdominal pains and did not know what was wrong with her. I think Vivian wanted to walk into a doctor’s office with warm and......

In your role as a dedicated patient engaged in the study of operations management, you are in a unique position to offer an analysis of your doctor’s business operation to provide recommendations for improvement. Consider the common interpretation of service processes in use at many organizations, which is used to identify four variants of a service process: 1. The process that is formally defined and recorded in a business document. 2. The process that everyone generally believes exists. 3. The process as it actually exists. 4. The process that should exist to deliver what the customer really wants. Using your arrival at the doctor’s office as a starting point in the process, create a document that focuses on the process of visiting your doctor for a flu shot. Be sure your document incorporates the following: • Introduction – describe what you intend to do and how you will approach the task. • A simple flow chart that maps the sequence of operations for variant #1 and/or #2 above. While you may need to make certain assumptions in your description of variants #1 and #2, your process map should include, at a minimum, all components of the process that are visible...
