Hospitals nationwide seek services to help with physicians who have violated either hospital or University policy by behaving badly. There are numerous programs to send physicians to around the country and a select few in California. Our agency, AJ Novick Group, Inc. has been providing coaching services for over 10 years. We have targeted and customized programs aimed at working exclusively with physicians who have been identified as having disruptive behavior.
A recent case example was a physician who was referred to our agency for using crude language while performing surgery. While he viewed the incident as nothing more than joking, his use of foul and inappropriate language created an environment where other employees felt intimidated and uncomfortable. The nurse who complained said she felt so distracted that it took away from her ability to do an effect job and thus jeopardized patient safety.
Disruptive behavior by physicians becomes a liability for hospitals, surgery centers and major Universities due to increased lawsuits and malpractice cases. Physicians who are trained in communication skills, increasing empathy and improving coping skills for stress management do much better in the long run because they have good interpersonal skills.
Our disruptive physician training programs can be tailored around the schedule of the doctor and can be provided at our office in Laguna Beach, CA or off site at any location in the United States. Our program is also listed in the Directory of Physician Assessment and Remedial Education Programs
