Doctors pls take note

'Treat patients as people not conditions': Doctors and nurses ORDERED to carry out bedside visits
    The advice comes after warnings that over-stretched medical staff were starting to see their patients as conditions, rather than people.
    Suzy Hughes, chairman of RCPs’ Patient and CareGroup, said: ‘There’s been a gradual erosion in what I would call a good ward-round.
    ‘We do tend to miss there’s a whole person there, not just a medical condition sitting in front of us.'
