"Patience required."

Watch and learn and pay attention.

"The truth."
Respiratory Therapist in Charleston:
The gods honest truth is that Healthcare has become so reimbursement driven regardless of a pt's initial health status. These md's and the hospital talk a big game about the quality of the care your loved ones get but the truth is they are truly only concerned about their bottom line.

"It's treatment of hourly waged employees."
Respiratory Therapist in Boston:
Go into nursing. Much more respect. Much more money. Work is the same kind of stress. Much better treatment from pears. Overall the profession is over rated and a little too pretentious.
