In medicine and healthcare, we administrators are concerned about the safety of our patients and employees. One of the areas that we monitor closely is the health and wellness of our clinical professionals - doctors, nurses, pharmacists, etc.
When it comes to politics, as a society we are also concerned about the person sitting in the White House - the one who has access to special phones and buttons that could impact the safety of our country.
So, somewhere I must have missed something, because Hillary's health is being called into question. I remember back when she had a condition while Secretary of State, but recently a couple of physicians, and maybe more, are questioning her fitness to serve.
My old friend from Las Encinas Hospital, Dr. Drew Pinsky, and a new friend, Dr. Gerard Gianoli, are two who have started asking questions. I'll let you visit the links below to see what they have had to say and draw your own conclusions. I for one, agree that Hillary has a responsibility to obtain the evaluations she needs and attest that she is safe to serve as President... before the election.
In healthcare we use TeamSTEPPS communication and teamwork techniques. The I'M SAFE Checklist is one tool we ask professionals to use to assess whether they can perform their duties. Notice that "illness" tops the list.
When we notice any healthcare professional having serious performance issues that could jeopardize safety, we step in and take action to remove them from their responsibilities. Let's not risk putting someone into office who will be challenged to safely serve and could potentially be removed (rework). We don't do it in healthcare and we shouldn't do it with our presidents.
Let us listen to the doctors and obtain the reassurance needed.
