AdventHealth Press The Patient Experience


Doctors, nurses, and other caregivers provide the most intimate of services the health and healing of our bodies, minds and spirits. When one human being cares for another, it should call forth our best of efforts and bring with it remarkable job satisfaction. Yet we find that medical professionals today are stressed, overburdened and often discouraged, with job-satisfaction rates at an all-time low. How can this be and how is it impacting the patients?
