Teamwork in the HospitalHospitals should focus more on teamwork than their hierarchy Too often patients dont get the treatment they require because the hierarchy comes first In the article Healing the Hospital Hierarchy it explains how doctors come first and nurses are below them Nurses spend the most amount of time with the patients and their opinion is often overlooked Doctors come into the room for a short time and because they are higher up they make all the decisions regarding the patient Doctors are required to know more so they should make the final decisions but listening to nurses might greatly improve the care of the patient Nurses spend more time with a patient and get to know them and how they are feeling on a personal level while the doctor only reads the chart and decides the treatment plan from that If they consulted in the nurses they might discover something that wasnt charted that could make a big difference in the patients careIn the article it talks about how a patient was waiting on a cardiologist when an oncologist came by to check him and he began to have chest pains The oncologist told the nurse and the patient that chest pains did not concern him Ignoring the chest pains and going on with his job could have been a serious problem for the patient but the oncologist didnt feel the pains were of any concern to him It also mentions in the article how doctors often blame nurses when something doesnt go as it should Doctors of any kind and nurses should be working together Their main goal is to help sick people and if theyre not working together I dont see how this can get doneIn my personal experience I was at the hospital for 13 hours in labor and the nurses were very helpful and knew what my birth plan was They gave me so many options
