Patient Comments (1)
in San Francisco, CA |
She was very dismissive when dealing with my family during a recent hospital stay. She projected onto my family member what she thought his temperament was without listening and taking in what our family was describing as parts of his personality. She kept saying "I've seen difficult patients before" and "I've been doing this for decades". Life and death decisions or mistakes can be made without understanding the patient and just looking at a test result.
