Shattered - The Story of the Wrong Kind of MD


To the doctors I see, I have this advice for you.  Please retain some humility.  If a patient says “Something’s not right”, they are usually right.  If you don’t know the answer, ask for the opinion of another colleague.  Swallow your pride and make your patient the priority.  Think carefully about how your orders affect the patient and the way the patient is nursed.  Your orders or the way you give them can easily contribute to the suffering and discomfort.  Be mindful of the way you speak to patients, their families and the nurses.  Your arrogance and superiority are not becoming of a caring human being.  You also make mistakes but your mistakes can be deadly or at the very least can do more harm than good.     
Shattered is a deadly honest look at what it means to be at the mercy of the wrong kind of doctor.   You can purchase the book from this link:  http://megabooks.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Shattered.jpg
