Or is it? We can’t help patients, cure disease or fix trauma without a healthy practice.nnMany providers have sought the perceived safe harbor of hospital employment. That is OK for some, a good idea for others but, in my experience, a huge mistake for most. It is also my experience that the reason used to make the mistake is, at the end of the day, bookkeeping or the lack of it being done properly.
