Today's special program is the NMP Problem in Medicine. NMP stands for 'not my patient, not my problem" an endemic yet widespread 'infection'. A byproduct of an excessively hierarchical & over-engineered specialist & subspecialist culture in medicine so wide & deep even the best of the best present with blindspots (ie, implicit or confirmation bias) while we the patient, family member, friend or loved ones often pay a very steep price. In my case, my Son Anthony John Masters may be it's latest victum to lose his life in the care of 'physicians' (faculty, fellows, residents, interns & PAs) staffing a Level I trauma, teaching affiliate hospital of a world class medical school - Ichan Mt Sinai School of Medicine), albeit this phenonmenon plays out daily so who knows who may be suffering as we speak?
