RAMBLINGS OF AN ITINERANT WOUND CARE GUY, PT. 18

by Michael Miller DO, FACOS, FAPWCA, WCC

One of the problems with writing a blog is not the lack of material on which to vent, vex or vociferate. Rather, I deal with the much desired situation in which there are simply so many aberrancies that appear before my now trifocaled vista, that I have to decide which of many potential entities to offend.

RAMBLINGS OF AN ITINERANT WOUND CARE GUY, PT. 14

Most of us are familiar with Genesis 4:9, in which, after Cain murders Abel, God questions him about his brother. His famous reply is “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Cain’s response (framed as a question) has led scholars to consider the consequences of assuming responsibility for the actions of another over whom you may or may not have a modicum of control.

There are many colloquialisms we use to describe a variety of situations. When someone appears to make a real commitment, we call it “full bore” or “going whole hog” or to use the gambling epithet, “all in”. Commitment is an important part of what we as health care practitioners stand for. You have all read ad infinitum, ad astra, ad mortem of my strongest belief that patients must take an equal role in their care. We provide the recommendations, the rationale and the risks (and benefits, of course) and they decide which of our offerings best suits their beliefs, their desires and for better or worse, their purses. The marketing profession has made millions of consumers purchase items they do not need based on the sex appeal of the turn of a phrase, changing a question of doubt into “iron clad”.
