Last week, USA Today reported on medicine’s continual balance problem of profits and patients. “You’re on the clock: Doctors rush patients out the door” tells the story of ”the hamster wheel” that is medicine.
Patients want time with their doctors, and doctors are keeping their eye on the clock. The article is a good analysis of rushed doctors who are listening less.
Meanwhile, a recent study shows that southern seniors are being prescribed a greater percentage of antibiotics, compared to medicine in the West or Midwest. No surprise that there is no regional difference in disease prevalence. Once again, some indication that doctors are rushing patients out the door with a quick fix.
And for Pic O’, “Hubcap Thief”.
