How to deal with challenging Doctors
Hello all -
What are some tips on how to educate/have doctors respond to your queries? My hospital is a teaching hospital, we nurses can't even call an attending, in most cases we have to go through the residents training with them (and pray they respond to your page). Everyone is stressed and some what aggressive. We also have a few challenging Medicine doctors who come in from their private practices and act like they still don't know how to put orders in electronically. It can be difficult to get just a medication order, I am wondering how I am going to speak to them about answering queries.
How do you build relationships with your doctors? Do you have some tried and true tips?
