Most hospital patients can’t identify their physicians, or the role they play in their care, a new survey shows. University of Chicago researchers interviewed some 2,807 adults at the school’s hospital over a 15-month period, asking them to name the doctors and describe the role they played in their health care, the New York Times reports. Three-quarters of patients couldn’t name a single doctor taking care of them—and the other quarter only got the doctor’s name right 40 per cent of the time. Maybe ignorance is bliss: those who could call one of their physicians by name were more likely to be unsatisfied with their care. The study appeared in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
