  A COMPLEX MEDICAL TEAM CHARGED TO OPENLY REVIEW THE TREATMENT
  OF EACH PATIENT BY MAKING WALKING WARD ROUNDS WHICH
  ALLOWED PATIENTS TO EXPRESS THEIR CONCERNS DIRECTLY
  the idea of "STAFF NURSE" persists but
  "WARD ROUNDS" HAVE GIVEN WAY TO MODERN PRACTICE STYLES
  WHERE A LONE MEDICAL PRACTITIONER ON HIS OWN
  "PRIVATE" ROUNDS CAN MAKE DECISIONS WITHOUT BEING
  EXPOSED TO THE JUDGMENT OF HIS PEERS
