Traits of a Great ER Physician
You have to have a true calling to be a great ER physician. Being an emergency room doctor takes a unique set of skills and a special kind of person. Not everyone is cut out for this job.
Emergency rooms move at an amazingly fast pace. Doctors and nurses face many unexpected situations and must be able to work well under pressure, handling problems in a calm and controlled manner.
Here we list some of the traits of a great ER physician, qualities that the physicians at Prestige ER have and live by:
Quick on their feet: ER physicians must deal with many different cases in one day. They have to be able to diagnose and treat all types of patients, which requires them to think fast and make quick decisions. The lives of their patients depend on this ability. From one patient to the next, an ER doctor must switch gears and assess the situation at hand many times, without having the patient’s complete medical history.
Organizational skills: An emergency room is, as the name describes, full of unplanned, life-threatening situations. Unlike doctors in other fields, ER physicians cannot organize their agenda, so they must be able to assess the severity of patients’ conditions and prioritize cases, always keeping track of what they are doing.
Energy: ER doctors have to work long shifts and spend a lot of time on their feet. They need to have lots of energy to face whatever situation comes their way.
Calmness and Control: Although emergency room physicians need to act quickly, they also need to remain calm when attending an emergency. Staying focused and in control of the situation at hand when treating patients in critical condition is a must.
Ability to Cope and Handle Stress: Naturally, ER doctors constantly face stressful situations. They need to be able to handle stress properly and have the ability to cope when things don’t turn out as expected.
As we have described above, emergency physicians have to be able to deal with a wide range of situations and a variety of patients. They need to think and act fast, always trying to make the right decision to save as many lives as possible, and always run against the clock. This is a lot to ask of someone, but our ER physicians prove it possible every day.
Prestige ER takes pride in its excellent ER doctors, prepared and ready to attend to patients in the best way possible, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
