In some instances, a patient may be lying on a gurney in the emergency room or in a hospital bed, unaware that all of the people in white coats or scrubs who turn up at the bedside will charge for their services. At times, a fully trained physician is called in when a resident or a nurse, who would not charge, would have sufficed." Oh those greedy [email protected]$ing doctors expecting to be paid for taking care of patients they were consulted on in the ER! And of course don't forget those times when a resident could just handle it himself and not run it by the greedy attending who is only there to pad the bill. Front page of the Sunday NY Times. It is nauseating how clear their divisive anti-physician agenda is. It comes through in every piece. Their agenda is to drive a wedge of distrust between physicians and their patients.
