Hippocrates with gratitude and "bags" with bribes ...

Hippocrates with gratitude and "bags" with bribes ...

... While the former fill you with gratitude, the latter ask you to fill them with bribes. In my mind, the words of the well-known doctors of the "Kratiko Nosokomeio" (State Hospital) of Athens have remained and will remain for a long time. The difficult operation for my closest friend, lasted more than ten hours and ended successfully. I had to go. I arrived at the very moment when the two little boys and his wife, breathed freely and tears of joy for the father and husband who came out, from the state of low hopes for life. In such cases, whoever he is, for his dearest man, will not spare to give something to the doctors, in this case, the well-known neurosurgeons, Fradzoglou Voskos and Papanikolaou Lipiridis who in this case are more more than handy. The Hysi family lived only on their wife's salary and husband Eduard, suddenly suffered a cerebral palsy. His wife and brother Alti, could not stay without giving something to these doctors for this miracle. It was at this moment that I found them waiting to give them what they had collected by removing it from the mouths of young children. The doctors come out and she, with tears in her eyes, begs her to accept what she has had for a long time waiting for their work so responsibly ... The doctors, who knew her after more than a week that she came he went to the hospital, they put him in the doctors' room: “Thank you, madam, but this cannot be done. We understand your joy that is natural for every person in such cases. You have your desire, but so do we, more than you, we feel our satisfaction that we achieved the goal of saving a human life and even more so young in age. For us, the greatest joy, there can be no. Your gratitude and your words to us speak volumes. This fills us with pleasure, although we still have to wait a few more days to wake him up slowly until we are convinced that the danger is over. As for the things you intended to give us, we can not take them, making no exception of others and not just you. Especially since you are foreigners and Hallejians like many others. We, for our part, have done nothing more than duty. We can not take the bread of these little ones and we will do our best to alleviate this problem in your family as much as possible. You will also have other expenses to do the physiotherapy, which, it takes at least three or four months to be able to move hand and foot. "We all pray to God for this miracle, for which in such cases we, as doctors, had half our hopes." These words have stuck in my mind. Nearby, there is also a journalist of the newspaper "Eleftherotipia", who also had a relative. Coincidence introduced us and we talk at length. "Here, he tells me, it has not become fashionable to give tips to doctors and for none of them, at least until today we have not seen or heard"! We part as long-time friends with Alex. Prior to the operation, blood was required and none of the relatives corresponded to the blood type. Two Greek colleagues, Janis and Aristidis, were ready to donate blood for their Albanian colleague. They were colleagues of the patient's brother, Edward. They were ready at the moment. The humanism sacrifice that few make. We have already become accustomed to comparing everything we see and experience elsewhere with the situation in our country. We want us too, that things do not go "oil", at least be acceptable to reality and the situation in which we find ourselves. Nothing is perfect, nothing is ideal, and it is not even a question of entering the professional side not only of doctors, but of any specialist. We will always talk about what seems, about what is important, the human side, or humanity, which is the tangible, visible, tangible side. I must emphasize that even in our country, in such cases when doctors bring to life, no one is spared to donate something to the doctor, but to donate it with soul and heart, not to ask the doctor. The problem is to give it to him by heart, not to create hatred when the doctor does the shopping. Let us not always blame only the doctors, because before them, we are ourselves, the citizens we have taught them to take. It has already become a kind of sedre among the citizens to give as much as possible to the doctor, because everyone has a "skin eye"! I am not talking only about difficult operations, but also about simple visits even in cases when they do not ask, despite the fact that they do not feel good, because giving has already become fashionable. I will go back no more than two and a half years, when a relative underwent an operation at QSUT, "Mother Teresa" always with the thought that St. Teresa does not "listen" to us because he will surely rise from the grave and will to tell us, "At least get my name out of this hospital, because maybe not everyone, but many doctors do not give love, but ask for money in exchange for work ”! We do not blame doctors for the problems of the craft, which we always take as good specialists because their colleagues abroad have nothing more than apparatus and tools, but we do not suffer from these, we suffer from the service of medical staff, from negligence, we suffer from what in the first place the doctor heals with politeness, with humanity, with a smile and does not heal with capability! To think later about the protest of the doctors of the Trauma Hospital, is painful and shameful for the doctors but also for the state. But why? The doctor is not like a criminal or a thief. As the doctor gives life, the criminal takes life and in this sense, are incompatible with each other. It is shameful for the doctor who speculates and abuses human duty and lowers his moral figure, violates the oath of Hippocrates. In such cases, the State must find other mechanisms and not act with doctors as well as criminals. In this sense, the arrest of doctors is not acceptable as it has happened, except in extreme cases when they neglect or speculate on the health of the citizen. But, the evil, deepens even further. It is not enough for the doctor to take a bribe with a "bag", but he also wants to legalize the giving of a bribe by leaving it at the reception so that he, from now on, can take it with a "bag" and not with a "bag" ”. This doctor is not alone, but so are the others who support him who takes such inhumane initiatives, choosing the "bag" to represent them. How do we understand this? It is the fault of the doctors or the state, that puts all the criminals and the doctors in the same "bag". Nay, I'm continuing where I left off, to surgery. The relatives of those who had the operation talked to each other: "How much will you give, and how much will I give?" Whoever had the opportunity gave more and whoever did not have this opportunity, would certainly give less. But the trouble was how the doctor would react and so it turned out. The person in question gave him a smaller amount than the others and the doctor scolded him: “What are these more boys? I had an operation, I did not make a simple visit ”! "Yes, these things happened to me, doctor, I will find more"! "I do not need anything, you had thought of it before and do not come here with your hands in your pockets"! This expression could go to anyone, but not just a doctor! Shame on you in this case and the boy is forced to borrow to fulfill the doctor's wish. This is not the place to do the analysis whether the doctors take it or not, because everyone knows this ... It is not about cases of joy such as births that no one spares to give something to the doctors, but the bad thing is that right after birth, excluding doctors who have their "guaranteed ration", all staff, anesthetists, cleaning nurses, run to get their "revenge" through the news they distribute for success. I am now returning to the problem that forced me to write these thoughts, what I have expressed since the beginning of this writing. This is not the only case for Greek doctors. This, I say not only I who have experienced such cases for more than eleven years, but they also express the hundreds of thousands of immigrants who work and live in the neighboring state. The doctors there do not have any complexes, but they serve everyone, whether local or foreign, with the same dedication and the same humane feeling. I repeat, not from professionalism, but simply from human feeling, from the way of communication, of behavior. To us, the citizens of this country, the troubles, the poverty, has made us that before taking care of the health of a family member, relative or friend, we will ask about the price of the doctor's work. We may be the only ones in the World who do not aim for the professional doctor, but aim to go to the doctor who receives the least. Let me be wrong and let hope not be so. A colleague of ours is admitted to QSUT with thrombosis of the leg. More than health problems, he was concerned about the price he had to pay. "We will see how the progress will be," the doctor replied. This forced him to report his son-in-law to a private clinic in Thessaloniki. He was ready to take his father-in-law to Thessaloniki. The next day he is admitted to the clinic. His first word was: How much does a hospitalization and surgery cost? The doctor asks in surprise: “Why do you have the word? "I have it for the amount we will pay." "Listen to me, forgive me, but when you go shopping, before you buy tomatoes, ask about the price. I am a doctor and I have the pleasure of rescuing the patient by doing the impossible. This is also your pleasure, but more than you, it is mine to do my job as a doctor ... As for the price, look at the fees that have been posted and I will do you a favor by taking you less than it costs ” . Finally, the operation went well and came out successfully at a time when all the services were done by the doctor himself ... Eh, how many such cases there are, so many years we are behind. Ah if only we, as citizens, were a little different, have fewer words and more work, listen more and make fewer remarks, be less knowledgeable. Wouldn't we be ahead?
