As sad as it may be, sometimes doctors have to deal with the the death of their patients during an operation or other medical practices. They have to stay strong emotionally when this happens. In such a case, would it be better for the doctor to have made an emotional connection or remain indifferent?
Whenever children get toys from their parents on Christmas day, the children usually forget what they got within the next few months. If these kids cared deeply about their gifts would they remember it for a longer time?
In the career span of a ER doctor, there is a sad certainly that they will have patients that will die. However, this fact doesn’t make it seem any less important to the doctor. Therefore, most ER doctors stay emotionally detached from their patients. I would say that this is a good and bad thing. It is good because if patients parish, the doctors didn’t make that strong of a bond with the patient and they will be able to continue working. Although, if they do make a connection with the patient they might be deviated from the loss and not bet able to do their job. Doctors are not the only occupation that has to face this type of issue, police officers, emergency field medics, and members in the armed forces all must deal with such challenges. These men and women must be capable to see death or else they can’t do their jobs very well.
When children wake up on Christmas morning they head down to tree and have fun with their family opening gifts. Many times the kids can’t remember,ber what they go for Christmas that year. Would it be better if these children didn’t get as many gifts if they won’t even remember what they were? In my opinion, the experience is what counts. Instead, on Christmas morning maybe their family should go on a family trip or get a family gift. This will potentially allow them to care deeply about each Christmas and make memories to last a lifetime.
From this you can tell that when it comes to a case of medical reasons it is probably for the best to remain emotionally detached. In other situations that aren’t life threatening it may be better to care deeply. In a situation where a doctor doesn’t show a connection with their patient, that patient may not feel comfortable. Therefore they won’t get the best service.
These are a few examples of circumstances where remaining emotionally detached may for better or for worse. I care deeply about Learning in Pajamas and I hope you do too, so show your love by leaving a like and following.
