Why do some doctors get so defensive when questioned by nurses? I ask him to clarify a medication and dose (since it's a slightly unusual choice), and he acts like I'm questioning his medical knowledge. smh

It's all part of the toxic culture and the constant power-plays from older physicians. It's quite sad but glad to see that doctors nowadays are doing better

I can see both perspectives. Could be ego. If said doc is like that all the time...sounds like ego. If not, probably just some personal issues going on. But if OP is posting about this doc, could be either a) an ongoing issue or b) maybe a new doc that feels the need to prove themself? I assume "imposter syndrome" is just as prevalent in docs as in other professions.

When I was a pharmacist we had about a 50/50 split between prescribers who were appreciative for questions and suggestions and those very defensive about them.
You have your conscience and responsibility to act on your questions.

Some docs act so entitled. It’s so good that other healthcare providers on the team speak up and advocate for patients. I’ve seen doc make so many mistakes or not do things properly and then the patient doesn’t have what they need and you’re paging then to fix it.

I honestly think its because we are the backbone of the hospital and they know it. They think because they went to med school that we should never question them. But questioning them is our job! We are just doing what is best for our patients.

I feel like I saw a post months ago saying that an eye exam was covered if you went to an ophthalmologist and billed it through medical insurance, not vision. But I looked on the UHC app and I’m still seeing $80-250 for an eye exam for any local providers. Thoughts?

Looking for suggestions for individual private healthcare so I can GTFO before I die from this job. Anyone with experience in this area?

Ladies who have gotten omicron - did you inform your clients? Or just say you were sick? I work remotely so I am not sure if people are expecting us to continue working.

I would rather just do my quarantine and ride it out. I am a bit slower and not on camera so I feel like maybe I should mention something.
