It's not the mistake which hurts. It's the callousness which hurts. Too many doctors treat their patients like a piece of dirt.

This post reminded me of a case that happened here in Madison last November.
http://www.channel3000.com/news/10223021/detail.html

The nurse charged in this case Julie Thao was a nurse for 16 long years with a perfect record. She was a nurse loved and adored by patients, who was good at her job. One fateful night during an emergency c-section delivery she was flustered and distracted by the patients screaming and accidentally have her an epidural instead of penicillin which ended up being fatal to the patient.

Julie Thao was charged as a criminal. This was a nurse who honestly wanted to help the patient. In her 16 yer flawless career she made only one fatal mistake and she was treated like a criminal. A person whose life had been dedicated to service and compassion was reduced to a mere criminal.

What is even nastier is that what should have been a civil malpractice suit was made into a criminal charge that created monetary benefits for the victims family who was suing the hospital for money.

If any of us make a mistake in our jobs no matter how serious it is,worst case scenario is we maybe fired. We will still be treated like ordinary people and not criminals. While doctors and nurses should take a high amount of care to avoid mistakes they work in a high stress environment and should be cut some slack.

As for drug testing, it has to be tested on someone. It is a voluntary risk a person takes to see if a drug is safe for the markets. Without such testing we would not know of any side effects etc. These drug testing companies offer hefty compensation, and medical attention. We have several drug testing labs in our town and I know several people who have successfully tested drugs. If someday I was available for their testing schedule I would too. I think the risk of a few lives is worth saving a few potential ones in the future. As it is one human less will not make a difference.

Every profession beyond a point is a no joke profession.. A general who makes decisions for teh soldiers.. or a captain of a ship making a wrong decision ...etc... the bottom line is mistakes can be isolated from blunders and negligence... there is no ambiguity there...Smile

 Most of us don't have jobs with life and death issue. Forget jobs or profession- If you get into an auto accident while driving and hit a car or pedestrian in the front and they die, you can be tried as a criminal. Loss of a life is very serious and hence medical professionals are required to go thru lengthy training process.

Thats right.. for any crime to be established an intent needs to be established...other every mistake is measured against its appropriateness... whether its a doctor or anyone else....take for eg...pilots etc... their mistakes take about 200 people to heaven unlike a doctor who can send one at a time.. The reason doctors profession attracts attention is because they are closed. Nobody knows what they are doing.. its impossible to probe and murder when a doctor commits it... which is why they are said to have license to kill....Smile
