Default Docs not going in to see (examine) patients??

I've noticed at work that sometimes if a patient is sedated and vented, the doc won't even go in to see them on rounds. They sit at the computer, look up the labs, write a note and leave.

My grandmother was recently in the ER (again). My mother (who is a nurse) said that the doctor ordered a bunch of tests and for her to be admitted without even seeing her!

How is this legal? How is this not insurance fraud? For surely the doc is charging for his time.

Has anyone else seen this?
