It’s well into Friday evening & I just got off the phone with a patient who had urgent radiology results. This was after spending > 40 min on the phone w another patient discussing the same this afternoon.
(18 more to come; stick with me.)
(And I “don’t work” on Fridays.)
During that call, my patient’s spouse broke down and — through sobs — simply said: “Thanks for being so kind.”
And we wonder why our outcomes don’t stack up to our peer countries?
