TRAIN OUR JUNIOR DOC’S! Don’t stick em in ADMIN Positions! SOAPBOX TIME!

Out of the Woodwork came Doc’s from all over to help one Deploying Doc, Thank you!

Thanks to all who heard the call yesterday and came on our forums or left comments for the Doc who just found out he was deploying to Afghanistan.

It’s not that he was scared of the deployment for himself, he was more scared $-less, that he could not perform with the limited amount of Patient care he had experienced with his 1.8 years in the Navy.

Da-Chief on his SOAPBOX!

“SOAPBOX ON”

I hate it when we stick junior folks in the records office, or admin positions.  It does them a dis-service to them, and the potential patients they might have to treat later.

Juniors should be elbow deep in patient care.

I know that Navy Medicine has changed through out the years, but these junior Doc’s aren’t going to have “Mama Nurse, or Papa-Doc” to help them make the decisions they are going to have to make out in the field.

With that as well,

“HEY NURSES, HOW ABOUT CUTTING THE DOC’S SOME SLACK ON RETURN?

Your not going out on combat patrols, I hope your A/C in the rear works good, because myself and my junior Doc’s didn’t have it, when we were doing our job.

What I’m getting at, is our job is a different beast, you leaders have to prep them for it, but also compensate for them on return.

“SOAPBOX OFF”

What do you think? Comment below..
