The patient is always right.

I often use the following in team building events for healthcare professionals and it usually prompts plenty of discussion.

It would be interesting to hear your views.

Dr Baum's Abbreviated Policy Manual
Rule No. 1: The patient is always right.
Rule No. 2: If you think the patient is wrong, re-read rule No. 1.

All other policies are null and void.

Dr Baum is Clinical Associate Professor of Urology, Tulane Medical School, Louisiana State University School of Medicine, New Orleans, and the author of Marketing Your Clinical Practice: Ethically, Effectively, and Economically.
