Nurses Don’t Always Agree With the Doctors
Contrary to popular belief, doctors don’t always know best. Nurses spend a lot more time with their patients and study them closely so sometimes their understanding of the situation could be superior to that of the doctor’s.
Having said that, a nurse cannot openly tell you if they don’t agree with a doctor’s diagnosis or treatment so they may go with the more subtle “You have a right to get a second opinion” instead. The next time you hear that you know what you need to do – thank your nurse and look for a different doctor.
