Default Respect

I always respect physicians at the bedside and say Doctor such and such. Remember, we are a team. Only through mutual respect, collaboration and communication, can we deliver quality healthcare. As we are pushed to do more with less, we need each other. My docs in the ED have given a patient a urinal, a glass of water, and yes one even helped me put a patient on a bedpan. I in turn, make sure they have what they need to always move fast from emergency to emergency. Guys, let's stop the culture of us and them. We started a collaborative medical education project, because we realized, by working together as a team, we can help educate more, ultimately giving better care. We also realized, it takes all of us to survive in medicine these days, thus the need to come together as medical professionals, not doctors and nurses, not us and them, but we.

Thanks so much

I only call docs by their first name if I know them really well.
