I was just wondering why there isn’t mandatory drug testing for Doctors? They are making opinions and decisions that affect you life our physical, emotions and well being everyday. Who wants their lives in the hands of someone who is high on Oxycontin, cocaine or on an array of psychiatric drugs? How do we really know what they are doing?
Physicians get a great deal of “free samples” and as the saying goes, like finds like. If they want the drugs, they will seek professionals who have the same intent and change prescriptions with each other. I have even read about Doctors who are selling Oxycontin on the streets for profit. At $20+ a pill it is quite a profitable market.
Oxycontin are equal to 16 Percocet by they way. Oxycontin is time released and if it is crushed or chewed and taken, it can have serious and deadly affects. So why are they prescribed so freely?
They might not be making the best decisions for your well being. What about teachers, priests, ministers, even coaches and school bus drivers? Anyone working in the medical field, and especially those working with children. How much do we really know about these people we are so trusting of?
So just who do you trust nowadays? Is your Doctor taking bribes from drug companies to prescribe certain drugs? There are many stories of the vacations and all sorts of incentives from drug companies to push certain drugs. Expensive drugs too.
There has to be a better way to screen people to weed out pedophiles, sexual, mental abusers and psychopaths from these places of employment before they do harm.
The answer might lay in educating the people to know what to look for in these predators. If we were all taught from an early age how to recognize behaviors of abusers, psychopaths and predators it will help save more children, elderly and all people from becoming victims.
On thing I have learned is to trust your instincts. If it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. If you have a bad feeling about something or a sick feeling in your stomach about a person, situation, or event, it is probably for a reason. Follow that, why take the chance?
It’s pretty scary, the news is just full of stories in every town, in every province, in every country. So many medical errors, sexual abuse from doctors, teachers, priests, ministers, coaches, and mental abuse from psychopathic bosses and on and on. If we add it all up world wide, that’s a lot of abuse. People who are in power, whom we are trusting with our children and our own lives. Lot of abuse everywhere and this causes a lot of heartache, illness and suffering for the victims. Yet the abuser who is a psychopath goes on without conscience or any remorse or even enjoy the pain they are putting your through. This is just as real as arthritis and heart disease. Stress causes a great deal of pain and suffering too and just as bad for your health as smoking or drinking chronically. Life is stressful enough, we don’t need some A-hole destroying your self esteem and emotional well being.
Once a Doctor has his licence, he doesn’t have to update it. Who does he answer to? He is now licensed to “practice” with your life, your body and your mental well being. Notice the word practice. I read an article once from a Psychiatrist boasting about how he feels god like with the power he has over his patient.
My question: “Who is protecting us, the people and how?” I would say a good place to start is with us! If we can’t trust officials to keep our people, food, air, water and streets safe, we need to take it into our own hands. We need to start talking about what is going on to warn others. If we don’t speak, the doctor/teacher/priest/coach will go on to abuse more women, men, boys and girls. Tell a friend, a teacher, a friends mother, a police, someone your trust or call the police or 911. There are many support groups for survivors who can help. There is no one who can help better than someone with compassion who has survived through the very same thing as you.
Maybe there should be a psychiatric evaluation of doctors/teachers/coaches/priest ect to weed out the physically, mentally or sexual abusive as well as pedophiles.
After all, there are good and bad in all professions whether it is doctors, lawyers, teacher, coaches, ministers, priests, traits men, swimming instructors, police or prime ministers. When it is effecting other peoples lives that is where it needs to be stopped.
There might be ways to identify and eliminate those more likely to sexually abuse patients, mentally abuse employees or physically abuse the elderly in old age homes before it happens. There is the PCL-R or Psychopathy Checklist-Revised questionnaire that could be integrated along with a drug test for prescription as well as street drug abuse. Cases should be reported not hidden.
Who is checking up on them anyways? You hear about so much abuse and there are probably far more cases that we
don’t hear about. The victim goes home feeling guilty and ashamed and the doctor goes on guilt free to his next victim. The doctor simply eliminates the patient if they get suspicious or ask questions. Young girls or boys, or women or men
with a mental disability or of a lower intelligence may not know any better. Teachers or coaches have the children move on to the next grade so it becomes a safely net for them.
Who is checking up on the private practices of doctors, massage therapists, chiropractors who have patients in their own privacy. Are chiropractors becoming massage specialists behind close doors to keep their customers coming back? Are
they able to manipulate you enough that you have to come back for more treatment? Are doctors examining their patients just for their own pleasure? Is the examination too long? Too many?
Perhaps every doctor, therapist, teacher, coach and professional should have a website that contains a feedback system so the patients can freely talk about their experience good or bad. I think it would weed out the bad ones
a lot quicker when the truth is put out there. I always feel if you aren’t open to your patient, client, customers opinions or feedback, you must have something to hide. If you have nothing to hide you would want and welcome the feedback.
I read an article in Reader’s Digest magazine and found the internet article to share with you, it is a different article but has the traits of a psychopath. Are you a psychopath? It’s not actually murderers, more people who function in society, take up powerful positions as police officers, business executives and terrorizes people mentally and emotionally. Yes, you know someone just like that. These instances have a lot to do with chronic pain. You can’t truly be free and healthy with constant abuse.
The search for truth implies a duty. One must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.
Here is an example of opinions of people in power, a police officer. If a doctor took that opinion and decided that certain women who dress a certain way are asking for it……………..well, need I say more? Read the article above.
