The general public just has no idea how many of their care decisions are made by nurses in every field of care. I work in LTC I take care of the same 30 or more people everyday that I work and a lot of times these patients are seen by a doctor for five minutes once a month or less. Many times when I call a doctor to report a change of condition or other issue the first thing they say is ok what would you like to do. I don’t think the public realizes how much doctors count on our knowledge of our patients.
