This article reflects the views of a fellow USJ student concerning the events that occured yesterday in Hôtel-Dieu de France (HDF). The CAMPUS-J Team insists on reminding you that it does not wish to take sides on this matter as it concerns the administration of USJ and the USJ student involved.
Right, wrong, fair, unfair?
Maybe it is a wake up call for all the immature medical professionals and students out there who still lack some sense of moral... and trust me there are a lot of them!
I know that she is very young and that it seems unfair to start with her, but it has to start with someone doesn't it? A couple of screenshots and the public has spoken.
Media can be sneaky and deceptive yet it cannot but reflect major opinions.
For once, patients are starting to express their insecurity towards health professionals instead of just health services! And that is the big picture, because at the end, everything comes down to a healthy relationship with a patient. Yes, patients care and they have a voice!
We know she did not mean it, we know she is still young, but the presence in a hospital itself is a huge responsiblity. I hope they take her back after this public propaganda (that could have happened to anyone we know), because the lesson is well learned. I also hope that after these two days, every immature intern walking within the walls of a hospital will think twice before taking an inappropriate snap and writing an inconsiderate statement about it. Although it might make them feel somewhat powerful and it might seem funny and attractive to their colleagues, here's some flash news : for the rest of the planet, it is not!
