Pt asks about procedure
Pt: Sabi nung nurse… Pre-res: Wag kayo maniwala sa nurses. Sa amin ka maniwala, sa mga gaya kong naka-white coat.
Conversations like this support the misconception that nurses are dumb and “alila ng doktor”. Maybe we could simply correct the wrong statement (if indeed it’s wrong) and do away with statements like “wag maniwala”.
A good HCP will strive to make the entire HC team better in terms of knowledge, skills, attitude.
I say no to doctor shaming but I also say no to shaming nurses and other HCPs. We are a team and we use a multidisciplinary approach. 🙂
