When you go to the doctor because you're sick, there's a chance your doctor could be working while also ill.

A new survey shows an alarming number of healthcare professionals go to work even when they're under the weather. Survey says 83% of doctors, physician assistants,  and nurse practitioners admitted to be sick at work at least once in the past year, even though they knew it could put patients in more risk.

Many said that they did not want to let their coworkers or patients down.
