We get paid by clinic billing for our insured patients. So, we get paid to treat migraine headaches in clinic, not to take care of the girlfriend of the meth head who stuck her in the head with a steak knife at 3 am. We dont get paid to take care of the drunk who tried to play frogger and run across the interstate during rush hour. We dont get paid to take care of the illegal immigrants who were shot when they tried to invade someones house. We dont get paid when they come in the office and insult our staff, steal our supplies and the demand narcotics.
I though about how to answer my class mates "bottom line" statement, and just said, "it is good for Gods bottom line". Call isn't about the money, its about doing what is right.
