conveying the truth
is telling the bad prognosis to the patient or to their relative
i really hate that part where u have to tell the family member :-
" we did the best we could , but he's not responding well... and there's nothing more we could do ...."
i hated the part when the patient only come to the hospital during the terminal stage of the illness
it's sort of malay culture , they will seek treatment from bomoh ...
until the bomoh said ..." this is beyond my magic power ... the other side black magic is stronger "
then they will turn up at the emergency department - unconcious
by the time they decided to see the doctor ,
they usually came with multi organ failure,
then the doctor also has nothing much to offer ....
