Of all the people in the world that you would think would undoubtedly stay home from work when they are sick, you would have to say "doctors" or "medical professionals," right? These are people who constantly work with the sick, or those who are suffering from serious medical conditions. Medical professionals know how an illness affects them, and they know how it can easily be spread among people.
And yet, a new study found that doctors knowingly ignore the risks of coming into work when they are sick. The study was published in JAMA Pediatrics, and it surveyed 536 medical professionals about their behaviors in relation to work when they are sick. The results were very surprising.
