"Doctors indifference?"

About: country hospitals

(as a staff member),

I have been a nurse for over 20 years. I have nursed so many people, I have a great deal of empathy. I work in a small rural hospital that does not have a doctor on site overnight, so we rely on a regional hospital to take calls so Drs are always woken up and disturbed, probably very tired and fed up with petty calls. I feel that many patients are patched up with pain relief and sent home, when they could be reviewed earlier. Has that caring side of Drs gone, is it all about the money?
