Hippocratic Oath

JOHANNESBURG 18 June 2009 10:00 WEC

Doctor’s take this oath to maintain a standard of ethics while treating their patients.
They make a promise to treat you in a professional way no matter the cost.
They believe that life is sacred and that they must protect life above all.
Their patient comes first and no rewards are discussed during this period of healing.
The patient fully recovers and then your troubles begin with health care.

You are introduced to hidden costs.
Medical health care comes at a high price.
Hospitals are built on profit based contracts.
Doctor's form syndicates to add to their wealth.
Their hidden agenda is revealed as ‘money and riches.’

They neglect their patients for a game of golf with their “brothers in greens.”
They drive expensive cars to justify their standing in society.
They lead a fast lives and sometimes take to prescribed drugs.
When the wheel starts turning faster they take to social drugs.
Eventually they slowly kill their patients for financial gain and habit costs.

Sometimes becoming sole beneficiaries of patients estates.
Always hoping never to get caught!

(more of a statement than a poem)
