Physician Stress Having Effect on Patients, Future Doctors: Survey
Physician burnout is having an impact on patients, according to a new survey. The research, published by virtual healthcare technology company Wheel and independent research firm Pure Spectrum, found that 80 percent of the 2,000 patients polled noticed during a healthcare visit in the past year that their doctor or nurse was burned out. The survey found that a quarter of respondents said that their healthcare visit felt rushed and that their healthcare professional did not have the time or energy to listen to their inquiries.
