mother had heart cath this am, back in room at 1030. Now 2:16 in afternoon, not one word from he or his nurse. Her husband will drive 130 miles and has no word of dx/tx, projected length stay. Unless his nurse or he is actually engaged in a life altering procedure this is incredibly rude to both pt and family. Unacceptable and a perfect example of the arrogance of the medical profession. Absolutely no reason his nurse/NP/PA could not inform her husband. her nurse states dont know when they round
