Ever since they got bought out by a for-profit company they have gone down hill. As far as the rent-a-doctors, oops, I mean hospitalist, it is bad too. Makes it better for PCP's, because their workload is a lot less, but as far as patient care, it sucks! Don't tell me a rent-a-doctor, can come in and read your chart in 2 minutes, and that makes him as knowledgeable, as your PCP, who you have been going to for years and built a professional relationship with. Sorry, but that just doesn't make since and that is why so many hospitals have had so many issues with patients getting infections. This brings up another pet peeve, lol, 99% of the custodian staff in hospitals do not take pride in their jobs. Don't believe me, just observe how quickly they are in and out, when cleaning a hospital room!
