To the doctors or anyone in residency, I've read a book dealing with doctors and patients; in one scenario, the superior court agreed to a doctor's request to take the patient away from her parents to a foster home when the parents continually gave the wrong amount of medicine and also refused to give recommended amount as well because of cultural differences. In their tradition, a shaman would perform a ritual to cure the disease; by the way, the patient who is an infant suffers from epilepsy. After realizing that the court would definitely side with the doctors, i decided to write a research report for my class about the rights that the doctors have and what the patients cannot do. any examples of a certain court case relating to this would be appreciated. So what are your opinions about patients; what rights do you doctors have that patients don't?
