Do you believe people should be held accountable for their actions? I will venture to guess your answer is yes. Now, do you believe that doctors should be held liable for the patient care they give? Again, a yes I’m sure. See also this interesting Ontario video on the subject :
But ponder this, what if a doctor does not act in the best interest of his patients, does not act in a responsible way, does not take the concerns of a patient seriously, resulting in misdiagnosis, injury or worse, death? This gets a bit complicated, doesn’t it?
Many try to put the fault of doctors uncaring attitudes upon health insurance companies saying that they involve themselves too much in the doctor/patient relationship, but how can a professional actually try to pawn off the responsibility of what they do in their office or in the hospital to be ruled by what a health insurance company policy says?
