    All care providers at UCSF are under some imposed time pressures in terms of how many patients they see in a given period of minutes or hours determined by the administration. Care providers don't have the authority to change those limits unless an unforeseen situation arises. While I understand the need for some accountability these restrictions have negative outcomes for both the patient and caregiver. Less regulations please. More awareness of each flexible situation. The administration needs some courses in kindness.
