FOR THE BIRDS, AND MOSTLY THE CHILDREN TOO

Hierarchy

Because in every hospital in America, patients die because of hierarchy. The way doctors are trained, the experiential domain is seen as threatening and unimportant. Yet, a nurse or a family member may be with a patient for 12 hours in a day, while a doctor might only pop in for five minutes.

A doctor speaks on hierarchy to the NYTimes and pushes for the empowerment of nurses.

National estimates are that we wash our hands 30 to 40 percent of the time. The idea isn’t surprising, but the statistics are.

In schools, the same thing applies to students. No teacher or administrator in any district sees or understands the functions or experience of a school as much as a student IN that school. Yet students are often first disenfranchised.
