InstaPoll: Text, Talk or Email?

Published: July 17, 2017

Tell us in this week's InstaPoll how you prefer to communicate at work: texting, talking on the phone or in person, or email?

Nearly two-thirds (65%) of the 328 respondents to last week's InstaPoll say their first cases of the day start of time "always" (8%) or "very often" (57%). When the first case of the day starts late, as it does for more than one-third (35%) of our resondents, it can upset the entire day's surgical schedule, delaying subsequent cases, causing bottlenecks, and frustrating patients, surgeons and staff. The results:

Our first case of the day starts on-time __________ .

  • always 8%
  • very often 57%
  • sometimes 22%
  • rarely 11%
  • never 2%
