Response to 4th law of robotics (Reply #168)

170. I don't blame lawyers....

If one has been wronged, one has the right to be made whole, as much as possible.

Too many people have unrealistic expectations. You eat artery clogging food at every meal and have a heart attack. After trying to open the arteries, taking medicine to help, the patient goes back to doing the same thing and expects to have his butt saved again???? And that is what we deal with.

When we try to have the patient healed with a better diet, the administration comes down on us like a ton of bricks because the patient sent a negative 'customer survey'. Call me a curmudgeon, but I refuse to call my patients 'customers'. I care about a patient, a customer is just someone who wants fries with their bypass.

This is why I love working with kids. They are still teachable. I have taught dental care, hand washing, periods, and CPR til I can recite it in my sleep....but I know that some of those little seeds I plant will take root-I have seen it happen. And that is what makes it worth my time.
