Should doctors have occupation to carry out their work and this serves as pretend to be able to make any sacrifice? This is the suspicion that some health professionals have discussed on social networks, because in recent months there have been some speeches in this regard due to a pandemic Coronavirus.
Therefore, a doctor has expressed from her Twitter profile that she would not die for a patient. “I like my job, I am passionate about medicine, but my life is not about him. I work, to support my family and A patient will never be worth dying for and they no longer see my children and my husband, ”said this user.
Those of you who express out loud that we should be prepared to die for our patients, you simply do not have an appellation that comes close to describing your emotional distress.

“Those who express that out loud we should be prepared to die for our patients, you simply do not have an appellation that comes close to describing your emotional distress“, acknowledges this health professional. Her words have reached hundreds of colleagues, who have tweeted and liked her publication.
“Being prepared to die for the profession is sick”
In fact, a matron agrees with her. “Your family, especially your children, will always be above everything,” said this doctor. “I totally agree with this one hundred percent. I also tell you that the biggest critics are those who come together later 18 at Christmas and wear a mask in only to avoid the fine. Those people who think they can do whatever they want and then you have to be there for whatever they want.“says a user who explains that his wife is a GP and that” the atrocities he sees are incredible. “
In the meantime, a GP thinks these assessments are taking place “because of the mania of many people who call us ‘heroes'”. “I think so the vocation has become too romantic and being prepared to die for the profession is unhealthy “, says a Pediatric resident in the same sense.”
They beat you down with vocation, sacrifice, effort, dedication (which is true in a broad sense) and now they also want us to be worthless martyrs? With me they don’t count.
