Physicians are increasingly distracted by devices

“Hospitals and doctors’ offices, helping to curb medical error, have invested heavily to put computers, smartphones, and other devices into the hands of medical staff for instant access to patient data, drug information and case studies.” However, “like many cures, this solution has come with an unintended side effect, doctors and nurses can be focused on the screen and not the patient, even during moments of critical care. Some hospitals have begun limiting the use of devices in critical settings, while schools have started reminding medical students to focus on patients instead of gadgets, even as students are being given more devices.“ (New York Times – December 14, 2011).
