"Doctors are not fools": Two doctors back at the controversial Twitter hashtag

Leading physicians beat a controversial Twitter hashtag that ridiculed doctors for being "fools".

The social media broke out with dozens of angry patients telling their horror stories about how their conditions were not recognized for years.

But in a strongly worded response to the spout, two doctors attacked the hashtag and said, "Doctors are not idiots."

Dr. Matt Morgan, a senior research fellow at Cardiff University, wrote the answer to Professor Peter Brindley of the University of Alberta.

In her retaliatory round in the British Medical Journal, she wrote: "No one wins when he makes the harsh accusations against fallible people, regardless of their proximity or salary

"Doctors are not fools, we're just heads, and like our patients, these heads are connected with hearts."

The provocative hashtag erupted when YouTuber Stevie Boebi released a video that took the time she needed to diagnose Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

Hundreds of angry Twitter users seized the opportunity and announced that they also had to fight with their doctor to get a diagnosis for a range of conditions.

Dr. Morgan and Professor Brindley accepted that many respondents, including Ms. Boebi, had suffered from "imperfections in medicine."

The couple added, however, how they accuse the monstrous reason and the impact, the shortcomings of individual doctors

In their article published yesterday, they added, "Has a situation ever improved in which you call someone a fool?

"Instead, this kind of language leads to an arms race with finger-pointing, excessive shouting and inadequate listening."

Dr. Morgan and Professor Brindley also talked about their concerns about doctors who "took the bait" to get in and put their finger on the patients.

They added, "Medical errors – or what can better be understood as human errors in a medical setting – can be really terrible and sometimes deadly.

"Wrongly attributing the root cause to a fallible person is to waste the opportunity to meaningfully improve.

"Although we have the human need for guilt, the collective plan is more important

"This should start by accepting how complicated the health care can be. Next let's encourage behavior that does not trample. "

They added, "The humans and their countless presentations are instantly complex. Therefore, up to half of our medical diagnoses can ultimately be wrong or incomplete. "

"Medicine is as much a philosophy for dealing with uncertainty and managing probabilities as anything else. However, it is not an exact science. "
