GP Watchdog

Security cameras and guards who monitor the work of GPs throughout town
  [vote for,

Ever had a horrible experience with a doctor? And noone believes you?

Well, this won't happen again!

With the new security cam system, these doctors will be monitored by a totally seperate organisation, which can possibly sue the doctors on behalf of the patients for malpractice and inethical conduct.

No more dodgy doctors!

       And the guards make a fortune by selling the footage on the black market.

       There is a ready supply of witnesses already available and randomly selected to ensure independence - the other patients in the waiting room. Obviously the solution is to have glass walls throughout the building - also solving the problem of what to do when you've finished reading the 100-year old magazines in the waiting room.

       There's a lot to be said for all professionals to record all their interactions with customers for defense in case of lawsuits.   

       But all too many medical lawsuits are more of a grudge thing, a reflection more of the patient's anger that God/fate/the world could have been so cruel to them, taken out on a stand-in human patsy. Not only do accidents happen, we will all leave this world one way or another, and even a perfect doctor cannot postpone that moment indefinitely.

       [DrC] Shouldn't that be "human pasty"? If so I'll have the cheese and onion...

       I like it, and then there's the convenience of having the doctor there in case the dog bites someone.....

       Do you not know that these doctors have taken a hippocritical oath, to always do their best to help people? The dog would definitely learn some new tricks at the gynecologist.

       I think all christians, who believe in heaven should quit going to the doctor. Why postpone heaven anyway? Whatever happened to gods will?
