Excruciatingly Embarrassing Moment for The Medical Board of California: Complete Meltdown of the Friday, April 25th Quarterly Meeting: by T. L. Kittle
Date:4/30/2008

dscape dramatically -- patients may not have the medical knowledge of a physician, but they know more regarding what's happening to their bodies. Until there are medical tests for every disease and those tests are a hundred percent accurate, patients need to be able to direct the course of their medical care in collaboration with their physician.

In order to do this, California needs laws protecting both physicians who want to take action on behalf these patients as well as laws to better support patients who need access to the medical care with false negative test results.

In order to distinguish the medically abusive doctor who orders unnecessary medical actions from the physicians who listen then respond appropriately should be the foundation of a patient consent law -- 'While I may not have the medical knowledge of a physician, I know more regarding what's happening to my body, and therefore, I accept responsibility for the potential negative consequences this medical action can have--after careful consideration I've determined I need it.'

There's another side to "do no harm": the harm caused when something is not done that someone needed. Like it's abusive to not feed one's children, it's abusive to not give medical care to those who need it. If care is only given to those who have positive test results, then it eliminates an unnecessary percentage of the sick population due to false negative results.

Unless in a state of emergency in the ER, physicians work for the patient -- and medical laws that currently support and encourage the 19th century viewpoint of the omnipotent physician should be re-written. Is it worth investing thousands of dollars of resources into persecuting physicians who have consensual sex with a patient -- excluding rape, sexual exploitation or therapists -- when there are people being permanently injured or killed by physicians who make repeated medical mistakes because the state lacks the resources to persecu
