Treat EPs as Administrators Would be Treated

Letter to the Editor

Editor:

Edwin Leap, MD, brings up an important concept in his column, which is also ancient: “Treat others as you would be treated.” (“Ban on Food and Water in the ED a Cruel Policy,” EMN 2018;40[10]:8; http://bit.ly/2Pbt06j.)

If this simple precept were to be observed by people with the authority to create an environment of care for the caregiver, a lot of burnout problems would vanish. This job is tough enough; when leadership doesn't have your back, it's that much more of a load to carry.
