Staff interruptions hamper doctors' work


Couldn't agree more. It's not just the fact you are interrupted by Doctors - it's the way it's done. I've lost count of the number of times doctors have butted straight into a conversation I'm having with a patient or colleague. I've even had doctors tug on my sleeve and attempt to speak to me whilst on the phone. Half of them would beat the average toddler in the egocentricity stakes. Perhaps social skills training needs to be put on the curriculum at medical school!
