I didn't pick this one because I thought Serum sickness was too systemic and RA was a more localized Type 3. Again, im overthinking things.
Goljan: RA is a mixed type III and type IV immune reaction
I though NK cell killing was similar to T cell so and RA is also Type IV
I guess it was all about not offering battering information in order to not make matters worse since he will figure out that the wife told on him..
Also, its a HUGE STRETCH but the only reason I thought he should stay in the waiting room was just in case the wife died they could detain him and call the police for questioning.
Also, he should stay there because his wife did not grant him the permission to see him. Patients requests trumps.
Doctor should not believe what wife told her. There may be some other reason for injury so batttering information should not be provided. But her wish of not letting her husband in should be fulfilled
No. In real life patient lies. In Board ques they always tell the truth. Unless they make it very obvious. in fact its a board ques rule. So u believe her untill proven otherwise.
The prevailing rule of American medicine and law is individual autonomy. No other person is granted “default access” or privilege to another person’s body—that includes the physician! The physician must receive consent from a (conscious) “person” before they become “a patient”. In the same way, the person (the patient) must give consent before anyone else is permitted to be involved in her care, spouses included!
