As a physician, I am feeling increasingly frustrated and disenchanted. Anybody else feel this way??

      In the last several years, there have been major changes in how we practice medicine. The number of regulations/new rules/new requirements that are being thrust on the physicians keeps increasing every day. It is becoming impossible to keep up with all the "training" videos, none of which pertain to patient care. There is now a 'new' way to do things that we have been doing for a long time without any problems and the 'new' way is not even intuitive or makes any sense except it is the diktat from the hospital administration.

      The physicians cannot even complain about why things keep on breaking down so often nowadays and definitely cannot hold anyone accountable for this, unless you are willing to be targetted by the administration as a 'disruptive physician'. The administrators now determine the 'appropriate' way how physicians should do things and they just tell the physicians that this is how things will be done going forward. Quality improvement usually means adding a new 'form' for the physicians to fill out while taking care of the patient. Maybe this might be someone's idea of improvement in healthcare over time. I however find it very difficult to see it that way.

Change is inevitable. It is too soon to pass a judgement if this change is for the better or worse. It definitely is drastic change in healthcare. I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

I have about 5 years before I can afford to retire. I can hardly wait for that day to come. There is no more joy in practicing medicine now.

Man, I share your frustration. It is not what most of us signed up for. Anyway, it is what it is...

Doesn't sound like a good situation. I did not realize that the hospital administrators have so much power.

Well said. It is a new era in healthcare. Nothing we even dreamt would happen.
