Doctors not listening to nurses and nurses afraid to talk to doctors is causing harm to patients. A recent study found that the hospital hierarchy puts nurses at a power disadvantage, and many are afraid to speak the truth to doctors. Video recordings also showed that nurses didn’t directly request what they wanted or express their needs, which confused physicians, who often ignored the nurses’ requests and moved on to the next agenda item rather than ask for clarification.

Want an easy (and free) way to decrease medical malpractice? Nurses and doctors should communicate clearly and directly with each other and, of course, listen.
