Doctor and Patient - When Doctors and Nurses Can’t Do the Right Thing - NYTimes.com

Doctor and Patient - When Doctors and Nurses Can’t Do the Right Thing: "Last month, a physician who serves as an ethics consultant told me about a growing concern in her hospital. Doctors and nurses “feel trapped,” she said, by the competing demands of administrators, insurance companies, lawyers, patients’ families and even one another. “And they are forced to compromise on what they believe is right for patients.”

She called the problem “moral distress.”"

No wonders doctors are getting burnt out !
