Hippocratic Oath

Aussie docs call for rewards after MAS incident

MELBOURNE: An Australian doctor left her family to attend to three sick passengers on a Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight to Kuala Lumpur.

As a reward, she wanted an upgrade but MAS said no. And Dr Matilda Metledge has shot off a bill to MAS for services rendered.

Her actions have now sparked a debate over whether doctors should be rewarded for providing services during flights.

The Australian Doctor magazine reported that Dr Metledge had to leave her young family to attend to an elderly man and a woman who were vomiting, as well as another who was causing a disturbance, on her flight.

After being given toiletries and pyjamas for her services, Dr Metledge asked for an upgrade but was refused.

The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is asking international airlines to provide incentives for doctors whose travels are ruined by treating fellow passengers.

AMA public health committee chairman Assoc Prof John Gullotta told the Herald Sun newspaper he also had three recent flights ruined because he had to treat passengers, and felt airlines were taking doctors for granted.

It is a bit unfair to expect doctors trying to get away on holiday to be always available and render assistance,” he was quoted as saying.

“Obviously we have to do that as part of our Hippocratic Oath and sense of well being, but the airlines have to take a bit more responsibility.

“On most flights, you are going to have at least one doctor there. So by having an incentive upfront and saying that if you want to be on call, you can have an upgrade or be paid for the time you are on call, every one else can relax.”

AMA suggested airlines adopt a process where doctors could declare themselves when buying a ticket and state whether they would like to be on call or not.

But Medical Error Action Group spokesman Lorraine Long told the newspaper that treating sick people was a doctor’s obligation, not something to do for a reward.

“If you are a doctor travelling on a plane and you help someone, isn’t a ‘Thank you’ sufficient?” she said.

MAS officials could not be reached for comment. – Bernama





Wow! That is what a DOCTOR called... pathetic!

Moonlight Shadow

Verse 1

The last that ever she saw him, carried away by a moonlight shadow,
He passed on worried and warning, carried away by a moonlight shadow,
Lost in a river last Saturday night, far away on the other side,
he was caught in the middle of a desperate fight, and she couldn't find how to push through.

Verse 2

The trees that whisper in the evening, carried away by a moonlight shadow,
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving, carried away by a moonlight shadow,
All she saw was a silhouette of a gun, far away on the other side,
He was shot six times by a man on the run, and she couldn't find how to push through.

Bridge:

I'll stay, I'll pray, I'll see you in heaven far away,
I'll stay, I'll pray, I'll see you in heaven one day.

Verse 3

Four a.m. in the morning, carried away by a moonlight shadow,
I watched your vision forming, carried away by a moonlight shadow,
Star was glowing in a silvery night, far away on the other side,
Will you come to talk to me this night, but she couldn't find how to push through.

Bridge:

I'll stay, I'll pray, I'll see you in heaven far away,
I'll stay, I'll pray, I'll see you in heaven one day.

Others

Suffer from the waiting for 3 papers in 2 days time!
That feels so much hatred for the waiting of such unorganized schedule by those who called themselves the higher educator. I wonder how they get their beef eater with such ORGANIZE planning.

But anyhow, feel lazy to look at all the books and stuff. Maybe will do it in the midnight I think.
That earns me some time surfing through some blogs, reading some articles which is really weird and funny. They seems like enjoying their life much, but I'm the only one who will be spending time to pitty myself over this ugly place. Using my time on some stupid stuff (like I will still remember what the heck is Lutjanidae when I go out to work, not like I will be seeing Elasmobranchii for the rest of my life), spending my money simply (which I can see I will be paying back very hard for the loan T_T), totally could not imagine how my life will be in the future.

Actually, when looking at others happiness, when comparing their happiness to mine, it is like the heaven and earth differenced. I do not get along well with the people around me, not even finding a friend who can always be the listener. I miss my home. Why a big guy like such so easily to get homesick?! There will be no reason for a person to be homesick right? After experiencing all the conflicts, aware myself of all the contradictions, suddenly I feel what a loser I am.

In uni here, being a friend to a person doesn't mean you are truly a friend to them. This is so solid real. They may want to be friend with you because of some benefits that they may gain from you. They are like the monster who will leech your life and all your brain juices and make them as the nutrient for them to grow much better. Horrible right? But this is real. Once they found out that you are worthless to them they will just dump you as dumping a rubbish, despite what you did for them. Or after your brain juice and all the blood of yours went dry, it is the time you will be extincted, when you will be eliminated and expelled.

Horrible right?

F.U.U.

This is such amazing term in describing the relationship have I learned ever since I am here.
For University Use.
Is it possible to have another half of you just for this period?
Will you be truly and sincere to your friends when you know your friendship wouldn't last long?
This surely be the sad thing. As far in my thoughts, friendship will never exert any pressure on to us, unless there is emergency cases happened. Friendship will never burden us, or makes us feel breathing difficulties.

But what I seen from a friend recently, it is not so.
He really did sacrifices a lot for his so call friends while the friends of him is just like taking his contribution for granted. None of them seems to appreciate what he did.

Anyhow, such relationship will not last long.
For any relationship which is not contributed by both party or maybe more, such linkage will be easily overcome by anything.
That's the very solid true facts that I have learned in here.

Other than the very pure friendship, the other intimidated relationship also like such.
Maybe a stable but dull partner will not excite your life to any extend, but anyhow he or she will also give you the warmest hug or place to hang on when you are really out of hope.
Excitement doesn't seems to come from uncertainty.
Maybe I'm the man of control desire.

Felt leftout

Tends to listen back to some really old songs that I really like most in the past.
When listening to this song, a lot of lagged appearance of some memories keep flashing by.
Those I chose to forget.
Those i chose to remember but somehow I forgotten.
But when listen back to those significant song which symbolizes some period of time in your life, truly speaking, it is fun.

Thou sometimes when the song you heard even on the street, or accidentally heard from any source, which will give your heart a minor electric shock. The same old tune and rhythm that rush into your brain, stimulates those illustration which you have long buried in the deepest of your thoughts. Maybe the images that appeared will not be the happy thing, or maybe the saddest thing you have been through, but still, it is the remarkable period in your life.

That's the magic of sound or so call music.
Touching lyric that you heard during the situation is always a greatest impact onto your thoughts.
The lyric that keep repeating in your mind, regardless how many time you heard, it is still the same old nice song that you like.
I will never forget those song really signify the period. During my working time, my study period, song before the important days, memory of a friend, songs at the farewell, song in the lonely time, song which I will be listening whenever you need comfort when I find no one is there for me.

Will I get bored to those? Sometime I wonder.
Maybe. Maybe till I find the more special moment which will have me to let go of all this.

High - Lighthouse Family

When you're close to tears remember
Some day it'll all be over
One day we're gonna get so high
And though it's darker than December
What's ahead is a different colour
One day we're gonna get so high

And at
The end of the day
remember the days
When we were close to the edge
And we'll wonder how we made it through the night
The end of the day
remember the way
We stayed so close till the end
We'll remember it was me and you

'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love

Don't you think it's time you started
Doing what we always wanted
One day we're gonna get so high
'Cause even the impossible
is easy when we got each other
One day 'we're gonna get so high

And at
The end of the day
remember the days
when we were close to the edge
And we'll wonder how we made it through the night
The end of the day
remember the way
We stayed so close to till the end
We'll remember it was me and you.

'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love
'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love

High, high, high, high, high, high, high, high

And at
The end of the day
remember the days
when we were close to the edge
And we'll wonder how we made it through the night
The end of the day
remember the way
We stayed so close to till the end
We'll remember it was me and you.

'Cause we are gonna be forever you and me
You will always keep me flying high in the sky of love

Actually... In Fact...

Sometimes I ask myself, why I can't be as close to you all as you all did among self?
Myself will answer: Maybe they don't really want to be close to you.

Sometimes I will think: Am I that hard to get along with, or when I'm not around, people around me will gain more laughters and fun?
Myself will just make a place to fit in the hole: You are who you are and they may not need you to be around to move on.

Sometimes i will have myself to think again twice, should I really be initiated enough to make them PRETENDING to be close to me? Should I beg for their caring and concern on me?
Myself will just ask me: Don't you have enough from your family? Or don't you love yourself anymore? If you do, why should you really care what they did to you?

But, I thought they were my best friends?
Yes, but not when you are in desperate situation.
But, I thought i can really share things with them?
Yes, but not all tings that can be shared. Sometimes you need to keep some for yourself.
But, I thought they are the place that I should turn to whenever whatever?
Yes, but you FOOL! You can't be always depending on them! You need to be INDEPENDENCE!

But.. But..
No more but. Actually why do you care so much on what they think?
Or what they did without you?
Or somehow they really ignore you purposely?

What a lonely and sad night.

They always do something nice without you.

Your heart couldn't hurt much for their doings and sayings.
