There’s No I in Team
There’s a common misconception that there’s a hierarchy when it comes to different roles at the hospital. Some people even think of a nurse as a doctor’s assistant or secretary but that’s not the case. The truth is that nurses don’t work FOR doctors but rather with them along with pharmacists, specialists, physical therapists, patient care technicians, dietitians, and more.
Like a cog in the wheel, each one has their role to play and no one is more important than the other. In fact, it’s the teamwork that allows hospitals to give patients the wholesome care they require. So, the next time you think of undermining a nurse’s role in patient care, think again!
