I do know that the patient was not informed of her medical options if the facts in the complaint are true.
I do know according to the complaint that she developed two infections and that those infections may have been avoided if standard care had been given.
People complain about gays, minorities, being a protected class that cannot be discriminated against. Yet here we have a situation where the religious have protected class status and it almost kills somebody, yet this is acceptable?
There is a real simple fix for all this. Your religion is your personal business and in matters dealing with the public you will follow the rules everybody else has to follow, no more special exceptions.
I posted many times IF.....seriously. This is getting silly. What we have to go with right now is just the article and the text of the lawsuit. Are we unable to have a discussion on those issues?
I take it as a given in a lawsuit there are two sides. And we have heard from one side.
Now, IF what the lawsuit says is true, what do you think?
Or do we have to wait until every case is presented in court and we have seen all the evidence before we comment?
Beyond that, the idea that a physician needs to discuss treatment with a patient is relatively recent, and could be debated on the merits.
