Was I technically right but morally wrong?

24 Jun 2019Registered users

It’s a case that still bugs me. One that I honestly think I mishandled. Scientifically I was 100% correct. However, I still think I got it wrong. I believed myself to be a kind and compassionate doctor. I also knew and understood the science, and the importance of optimising my time. Would getting out of bed to drive to this patient, sitting with her for 20 minutes, being kind and understanding, have been the right thing to do?
