Victim of disintegration
Fam Pract Manag. 2000 Mar;7(3):15.
To the Editor:
I have just become a victim of “disintegration,” and as I re-establish my family practice in the area, I will once again start taking hospital call and admitting patients — something I'd been able to stay away from for the past 15 years.
Thank you for helping me with both of these issues by providing the standardized admit orders [November/December 1999] as well as the recent articles on disintegration [“Disintegration: How Employed Doctors Are Landing on Their Feet,” November/December 1999, and “Is Disintegration the Answer?” February 2000].
