Health is a big term, both in the books of an individual or a businessman. From a layman’s point of view, it can seem to be a very lucrative business, where one seems to make a lot of money and take no blame for many of their actions.
From a businessman’s point of view, it can still be a lucrative business, but it comes with its own share of responsibilities, cons, and problems.
The Health Care Business
Here is some perspective on each the two main parts of this business. There is more to these two professions than what a layman understands:
The Doctors – The biggest asset of this business, without whom, there will be no business. The doctors though perceived to be rich, free and famous, feel overworked and underpaid.
A doctor is expected to be on call for every patient’s problem and what one forgets is that they are humans too and have a family and life, just like any other. Though a doctor has to be more selfless than a regular person, as this job requires compassion and sacrifice, they cannot be expected to be available at all times.
This is why they have juniors, nurses and other professionals to help them in this industry. When a patient is met with unfortunate news, the doctors are only blamed, even if it is not their fault.
The Nurses – These professionals do a lot of work but never get appreciated for it. Many surgeons are particular about the nurses they work with as the nurse needs to understand the doctor and should be capable enough to handle the demands in case of an emergency or a surgery. This is not the time to think or understand what the doctor actually means.
The pressure for people in this profession is immense but the pay is not as high as the doctors. They are not recognized for their work either as patients never consider nurses as anything more than just an intermediary between the doctor and the patient.
