Family Medicine – Day 11

It was a long day today. There was a change in my schedule ’cause the doc I was supposed to work with actually didn’t have patients scheduled today, so I was reassigned. We ran pretty behind this afternoon, in large part because a lot of the patients just needed more time than the 15-30 mins (what’s new), but I think in some cases we got a little carried away with some of the conversations. They were mostly productive conversations, but also at times we had patients wait for almost an hour past their scheduled appointment for relatively simple follow-ups.

Idk, just something to be mindful of. No ones, fault necessarily, ultimately a systemic issues, but at the same time that is the reality we live in so we need to try our best to work within those parameters while fighting for change.
