Alberta College of Physicians and personal responsibility.
The College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta says mistakes happen and people should take more personal responsibility.
Amen! People are not perfect, physicians are people. So what do we do when imperfect people make a mistake in a system that is funded by tax dollars? Simple, we spend colossal amounts of tax payer money on reviewing how human(s) made a mistake and then hire a panel of 'experts' to spend more money implementing impractical changes to prevent a similar mistake in the future only to discover that humans will find new ways to make mistakes or the implemented changes themselves become a new and even better mistake than the initial human error.
Should we ignore mistakes then? No.
The problem is that these situations become highly political, the media makes a stink about it then the politicians totally freak out and over react. Hence the CTV headline "Health Minister orders largest review ever conducted in Alberta".
