Is nurse better than Doctor?
One study used complex case studies to compare the diagnostic skills of doctors and nurses. Not only were the participants asked to diagnose the illness, they also had to suggest a treatment. The researchers found that there was no statistically significant difference between nurses and doctors.
How does a nurse help a doctor?
Nurses help patients get what they want and need. They serve as communication liaisons between patients and doctors. They also help to filter (sometimes unreasonable or misdirected) patient requests so that doctors only need to deal with the really important stuff.
Can nurses tell doctors what to do?
The nurse has the responsibility to inform a supervisor as well as the physician immediately to prevent patient care delay. Failure to do so may constitute negligence.
