This is a blog by a former CEO of a large Boston hospital to share thoughts about hospitals, medicine, and health care issues.
How about pain control? What do you do to counsel/discourage drug seekers? How do you feel about back surgery? Are you open to the nurses reporting inadequate control or do you defer to the doctor? Do you do a psych consult for intense pain especially in the elderly? Why is noone working on a clinical marker for pain (I know it's a difficult problem, but the 1-10 scale is really weak). Do you have a pain clinic integrated with the hospital?
