Ross and John question why VFL footballers are drug tested, but surgeons are not
After news of three surgeons continuing to operate despite admitting to cocaine use, Ross and John say surgeons should ‘stultifying boring’, and have questioned why a ‘back pocket player for Sandringham’ gets drug tested when doctors do not.
Victorian Health Services Commissioner Beth Wilson said surgeons have an obligations to keep their patients safe, which requires them to be safe, well and healthy themselves.
HAVE YOUR SAY: Which other occupations require people to be 'stultifying boring'?
”"The difficulty is it is a euphoric-inducing substance and surgeons or anybody else may think they're just doing fine, when in fact they may not be,” she said.
”The problem with cocaine it is illegal. If you're taking an illegal substance, you're going to be dealing with criminals because your dealers will be breaking the law.
Ms Wilson said doctors earned many privileges, but when them carried very serious responsibility.
”I would hope that (cocaine use prevalence among doctors) was far less than in the general society, because being a registered doctor is a big responsibility,” she said.
LISTEN: Victorian Health Services Commissioner Beth Shaw speaks with Ross and John:
Hope I don't get any of these doctors performing surgery on me. Ms Wilson said the drug 'could make them believe they are doing a good job when they are not' so has to be detrimental to the patient. Has their records been checked to see if any of their patients have been harmed by their treatment?Willow Friday 26 October, 2012 - 3:14 PM
Why not all public officials?
The erratic and mostly incomprehensible decisions from Land Victoria and other divisions of DSE would suggest that most of the senior executives are on something.TFof LV Thursday 25 October, 2012 - 12:08 PM
