Three doctors in three days

In the hospital I worked this week, the hospitalists have instituted “geographic rounding” which means I was assigned to a specific nursing unit and I would care for patients in that unit exclusively. It also meant that if you got admitted after 5 pm another doctor would see you first. (we took admissions until 5 pm), the next day I would care for you but if you got better enough that you did not need to be in the telemetry unit and you got downgraded to a regular floor you would be seen by a third doctor the next day. Three doctors in three days, I think are not great for patient care.
