higher salary

Medical technology and sufficient supplies

  • Something that is a reality is that the facilities of hospital groups are usually the best equipped in the country and those with the greatest technological advances, which helps you to provide more accurate diagnoses to your patients.

Difficulty getting a job and overwork

To begin with, there is the problem of getting into any of the institutions. It is not easy to get a permanent place because there is strong competition but very few places are available. In some cases, applicants must make several attempts and wait for years until they finally achieve their goal.

However, once inside the public sector a terrible reality arrives. Every day you will have before you a large number of patients to attend. Just look at the crowded waiting rooms, which means there is no time to rest. As a result of the above, the The chances of doctors developing job stress are very high.

Angry patients and archaic equipment

As a result of the above, in most cases patients tend to blame the doctor for the system deficiencies. They think that the time they have to wait to go to the consultation is the fault of the doctor and consequently they tend to show a rude and haughty attitude within the office. This means that your work days are even more complicated.

While another of the constants is the lack of technology that persists in many of the public hospitals. The big complaint of the staff is the obsolete equipment with which they have to attend to the patients. The lack of investment it is responsible for doctors working with machines manufactured decades ago.

Although that is not all because there is also a drug deficiency. Faced with this scenario, the doctor is also affected because sometimes he must adapt to the available drugs in the warehouses to prescribe them to their patients.
