Youre assuming you can deal with all manner of medical matters with perfection at every decision point, measured against hoped for ever lasting life
and comfort. There is no such thing available. Patients often lie, forget, misrepresent or are otherwise intoxicated or have other agendas,science is
imperfect, dissimilar diseases share similar symptoms, the circumstances and symptoms evolve and contrary to popular belief, people are not all the
same and they dont all respond the same and are not in the same condition.
You cant compare against perfection to assume liability, any more than you can assume that since only half of all lawyers win their cases , on
average, that they are liable to malpractice simply because they lost. And lawyers pick and chose, and spend days and weeks on a single case( and
there's nnever any insurance for it.).
News flash fa ya, with or without doctors, or hospitals, anywhere, all doctors eventually lose every patient to the reaper. All doctors die, too.
It's not the physicians task to save you from your lifes accrued mileage. THey are an adjunct for you to listen to or ignore as you wish. They are
human and imperfect.
Nobody else is held to such an impossible standard, to take all comers under all conditions and keep them alive and comfortable forever, often,
against their will, without cooperation and contrary to their lifestyle.
