Handling confrontations with consultants in the ED

Handling confrontations with consultants in the ED

Ed Management 11(11): 129-131

Demand respect when consultants second-guess your clinical decisions or behave rudely. Address consultants' specific complaints and don't respond to generalizations about the ED. Establish credibility by having radiologists confirm your X-ray readings in front of consultants. If consultants are rude, don't hesitate to confront them.
