Medical Auxiliaries and Overbooking

Postings on the subject of medical auxiliaries prompted the following comment from social worker Cindy Mugglie:

Re the rise in use of physician assistants, nurse practitioners and the like, while working at nursing homes in a large city, I noticed that many doctors seemed to take on a wide variety of responsibilities that they could never manage on their own. There were times that I thought they couldn't manage it, even with all the helpers. For example, the medical director of a nursing home was also the medical director of 3 other nursing homes and saw patients in 3 clinics. I think that God and Santa Claus are the only beings able to multi-task that well.
