  1. Nurse's notice things like a small tremor--alcoholism. They feel the dryness of a pt. hand and alert the Dr. to possible diabetes--nurse's can be trained as Health Monitors in the community. Ethical training is the key. A small fee, less than Dr. fee could relieve pt. worries and help with monitoring health in community and monitoring health of individuals (esp. children) for Dr. referrals.
