Hello,
I previously brought up that np and pa are trying to set up their
own clinics and in many cases have no supervising doctor. I
was working at a comm health center and a obst. nurse pract
was seeing patients a whole day and no ob attending was in
the building. I consider this dangerous and unacceptable yet
the same characters who testify about doctors from certain
schools should not get licenses in certain states say nothing about
this. That is because the issue is personal with them. Clearly
unsupervised extenders practicing independently is poor quality of
care. If it was your wife or mother would you want a pregnancy
visit that is not supevised by an ob attending.
