Bad doctors and bad habits.
"Sometimes, when we are fortunate enough to have patients visit our classrooms and share their stories with us, a handful of students are more entranced by emails or text messages. Granted, these students are the exception, not the norm. And granted, they have been called out. I’ve seen another classmate tap one of the computer users and tell him bluntly to cut it out. Our professors have called them out too, with one recently saying, “it’s very easy to be high and mighty about those ‘other’ doctors who aren’t sensitive to patients... but if you’re the person who’s on your laptop while the patient is here telling us about [his or her] condition, you are that person.”http://www.ilanayurkiewicz.com/2011/12/on-becoming-bad-doctor.html
