Blame game

Who is to blame for the overuse of antibiotics? The doctors say that it is the patient demanding them and that it is all the patient’s fault for the growing epidemics of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The biggest problem is that doctors pass out antibiotic prescriptions for every cough, sneeze, sniffle, rash, tummy ache and fever, even when they’re clinically proven to do nothing but damage. Well they can blame the patient all they want but the license to dispense is the doc’s sole responsibility. The patient is wrong to run to doctor for every cough, sneeze, sniffle, rash, tummy ache and fever. If a doctor’s first move is to reach for the antibiotics your next move should be to high-tail it out the door. If doctors would give patients actual informed consent as to why medications make them sicker, most patients would refuse them.

Oh, boo-hoo doctor. Blame the patient for your prescription writing habits. Bad doctor!
