People want to trust their doctors and hospitals. We rely on medical professionals to come through for us in times of crisis. We need them to be at the top of their game. Cynics may say, yeah, but at the end of the day this really IS all about the money, right?
If you are an expectant mother, you’ve probably had your fair share of doctor’s visits, each being a chance to load up on information as you prepare to welcome a new baby into your life. You’ve gone through prenatal checklists, talked about birthing preferences, learned about pregnancy risk factors and more. But has your OB-GYN ever talked to you about brachial plexus injuries?
We’ve all been there: Driving along the highway, feeling pretty comfortable until a semi-truck approaches in the other lane. There’s a moment of feeling unsettled, maybe even afraid.
Because we all know — if that truck were to crash, it would do some serious damage.
It is human nature to trust our institutions and the people who work within them.
In sending your child to school, you expect he or she will be taught by skilled teachers. Car gets broken into? You assume police will try to find the culprit. And when you go to the hospital, you trust that the physicians and lab technicians will do their best to keep you healthy.
Society runs on trust.
