What Would You Tell A Client If A Doctor Told Them The Problem Was Their Fault

  • It is important to understand that physicians are people, too, that will own up to their mistakes, if one was made
  • It may be accidentally worded as blaming the patient for what has happened, but that is probably not the case
  • Anger and sadness gives more reason to possibly investigate a malpractice case
  • Doctors see patients respond to treatment in a variety of ways, so it may actually be the patient’s fault for the outcome
  • An example of this is a patient not healing after a procedure, and was blamed for that because the patient was a smoker
  • The patient never hid this from their doctor, so the procedure shouldn’t have taken place until after the patient had quit smoking
  • Even if the patient is resistant to authority, that does not mean that the physician is blameless
