The patient cannot hold one of the extended arms still. It wanders about.

Quick on anaphylaxis for my medical student today, and good review of the definitions for anaphylaxis - you don’t need to have 2 symptom involvement to satisfy the definition!

In the survey quoted earlier, Australians had a lower “acceptable miss rate” than Americans, despite having less litigation. But maybe Australians simply have more to live for! :)

(3/3) We fear missing ANYTHING because of persecution by our own “colleagues” and our egos. We seem to fear being imperfect doctors more than we fear lawsuits. Maybe lawyers are scapegoats for our own fear of imperfection. I don’t know. Thoughts????

(2/3) States that enacted gross negligence laws have fewer lawsuits but really no reduction in very-low-risk workups/admits. I think it’s because of our training. No student/trainee ever gets kudos for a really cost effective workup! But we always get praised for dx’ing the zebra

(1/3) IMO the legal profession is not to solely blame for our conservatism. Our medical culture is at least as much to blame. Get rid of the lawyers and I think we’d still have the same level of conservatism and excess admits/workups.

I agree with Mike. SDM done well is enormously protective, especially if provided in layman’s terms, written, that patient signs off on. And it’s just plain good medicine.
