Saudi Arabia

November 8, 2011

a while ago, I tweeted this question just to see how people would respond to it..

"If you were a doctor and 3 patients came to you, one who's a child molester with a serious case, a killer whose condition is more serious and a father of two children who suffers but he can wait. Who would you treat first? "

14 people responded within 15 minutes saying that they’d treat the father first. Why? because he hasn’t done anything wrong and he deserves to live!

Guys, who made you the judge and the jury?!!

Let’s say a patient who hits his mother whenever he’s drunk, or a thief. Do they deserve to be treated?

Someone said: Thing I’ve hated about most doctors is their lack of human emotions.
They have to be like that!!!

Another one said: We treat the disease not the patient, cases should be listed according to their emergency.

and I totally agree. Doctors’ job is to take care of patients’ health regardless to their personalities or what they do.

A quote from my favorite doctor <3

Foreman: "Aren't there better ways to spend our time?"
House: "Good question. What makes a person deserving? Is a man who cheats on his wife more deserving than a man who kills his wife?"
Foreman: "Uh yeah. Actually, he is."
House: "What about a child molester? Certainly not a good guy, but he didn't kill anybody. Maybe he can get antibiotics, but no MRIs. What about you? What medical care should you be denied for being a car thief? Tell you what: the three of you work out a list of what medical treatments a person loses based on the crime they committed. I'll review it when I get back.

Not sure what I would choose but thanks for commenting on my blog. As it turns out, I should have followed your advice and NOT told the girl that I dreamt about her. Oh, wel. Live and learn. Nice to meet you, also. I used to have many friends in KSA but they kind of dropped out of sight.

The doctor must be treated  the patient
not to become a judge .
This is the doctor's ethics
In the medicine's law " we must  treat the most serious case first, even if your enemy "
