Covid may be messing with my DRG Trial

@rwinney I agree. I believe it is management in companies pushing the medical staff i.e. doctors, nurses, and therapists to meet the quota for the number of patients seen in a day. It depends on the setting but I strongly think it is not about the quality of care anymore. It is about $$$ and not the patients. I understand companies need to make enough money but to the point where they push their staff to not even have time for breaks? Many times the medical staff take the extra time in order to keep their patients safe at the expense of not taking a break. They are the uncredited heroes who have to listen to patient complaints. Little do the patients know most of the complaints they have are due to management decisions. What has happened to healthcare? I believe most individuals, i.e. medical staff care and not the companies.
At the bottom of the services, we have the healthcare providers i.e. doctors, nurses, and therapists who have to a abide by management in order to keep their jobs. I have seen this through my work experience. That is why I am an advocate for myself and my 90 year old mother. The medical staff simply does not have the time.

It's like a lot of things that have degraded so much since I was a kid in the (gulp) fifties. It was truly a different world. My doctor back then had his own practice down the street on the 2nd story of his big old Victorian house (can you imagine) and I walked to my appointments sometimes. One time I was out running through a field with a friend and snagged my hand on barbed wire and ripped a small hole in it. I walked all the way (must have been 2 or 3 miles at least) to his house. He dropped whatever he was doing and sewed me up. Boy what a different era that was!
