“Remember this one rule…” said my old professor when I started my training.
“Don’t ever take risks! Risks are for BASE jumpers. A patient entrusts themselves into your care. And it’s your job to keep them safe. Follow my rule and it’ll keep you out of trouble. You’ll avoid the medical board. Maybe even avoid being sued. Or perhaps most importantly…
You’ll avoid hurting the very patients you’re supposed to protect.”
Dignity of Risk is a 15min short film/documentary featuring on an encounter between Prof Joe and a patient, Mr Jones, who has recently been diagnosed with dementia. The film raises questions relating to protecting Mr Jones from harm vs intruding on his enjoyment and quality of life.
