Doctors are right to say no to IHealth

Re: “Doctors defy IHealth, dump software,” April 28.

I support Nanaimo doctors who refuse to let cumbersome software interfere with caring for patients.

It is unfortunate that administration places compliance and documentation above actually caring for patients. How much of a nurse’s time is spent on electronic charting now, versus bedside care?

Poor software has caused my patient to receive the wrong type of test. I am happy there are still people who say no when something isn’t right.
