DOCTORS SANS PRACTICES: The Boston Globe reports on the rise of hospitalists within medicine. Like ER doctors, hospitalists do not have a traditional practice; they only see patients who are in the hospital itself, which eliminates the need for primary care doctors to check in on patients they've sent to hospitals. It actually sounds like an improvent in customer service as far as getting sick goes, since it means there's always a doctor there --no more late-night raising people out of their beds and all that.
