Exactly. I agree with you. Mutual respect for one another. I'm so grateful to work in a field where I can continue growing and exchanging knowledge and skills with my colleagues, MAs, RTs, RNs, MDs, DOs, etc. It's impossible for any individual to know absolutely everything. Teamwork is key in being successful. I'm a better (RT)Respiratory Therapist thanks to all my colleagues and our patients. Enjoy the journey everyone.
