An anonymous doctor

15 Dec 2011

As doctors, we try to be objective in order to think of our patients’ best interests without our judgement being clouded by sentiments.

But it is a daily struggle not to show emotions – sympathy, sorrow, frustration, anger when dealing with the care of elderly people who have forgotten what life was like when they were still able to care for themselves and their loved ones. When loved ones get too caught up with their own lives to give a damn for our elderly people, they voluntarily forget they need to care.
