Doctors or professionals in health care, have no scope of committing a mistake when it comes to life & death. Right?

 

1. Ultimately they too are humans and into a profession, is it fair that in this profession mistakes should be subjected to max punishment?

 

Another related question, ignore at will: 2. for making the health care safer there are initiatives required by common masses, for example participating in new drugs testing program and research, would you agree to be participate in such programs? Yes/No and Y?

No punishment should be measurable to the extent of crime...

Yes.. I believe in such things.as being a guniea pig.. doctors making mistake is nothing to do with it... just cause you can be run over by a car.. we dont stop using  teh road...

Crime Confused no matter what all mistakes are punishable then, correct?

It's not just the question of doctor making mistake, its about making the health care safer, overall.

I think you are misxing mistakes with negligence... Negligence is punishable by law and is glaringly visible ( right kidney removed instead of left) and invisible (Oh I left the scalpel inside the patiens..LOL. Mistakes on the other hand are smaller and less impacting and nature...Oh.. I prescibed the medecine but fogot to ask about allergies.. Now though this is largely imapacting you shouldnt nail the doctor... antidotes can be given instantly..etc.

To err is Human Embarrassed No man can be perfect.. I agree with you that we have to make it more safer.. But think it this way - it may have happened that the nurse has used the needles for a patient and kept it aside to throw it away, but she might hv got an emergency to go away.. The other nurse comes uses the same needle thinking she had to inject it on the patient.. Now this is clear mis-understanding.. But yes, there should be lot of safety measures carried out.. The one that is under existence is not sufficient, atleast in India..

Regarding punishment, well the docs always give vague reasons to rescue themselves.. Thr was a soap called 'ek ladki anjaani si" whr a girl of 18 yrs old was wrongly injected for artificial insemination and later when realized, the docs got saved..
