Wow, half an hour a patient - that's a lot!Pinkertinkle said:From my hospital volunteering, doctors get to work in the morning, see patients for half an hour or so continuously for the whole day. This is however an outpatient clinic, I was curious as to what an inpatient doctor's routines are.
Not really, when you consider all the charting that has to go into seeing a patient. They may talk to the patient for 10-15 minutes, then spend as much, if not more, time completing their chart. When I shadowed in a clinic, it sometimes took an hour to get through one patient (those were the particularly complicated ones, though).(nicedream) said:Wow, half an hour a patient - that's a lot!
