I was at the medical center recently for flu (genuine, in case any of you are wondering). I had duty the following day and I knew I wasn’t going to be well enough to be on duty, so I wanted to get a MC or at least a light duty.
Went in, saw the MO for less than 2 minutes, and got sent out to wait for my medicine. No MC. No light duty. Nothing.
Further more, I was given the “”yellow tablet for flu”” (the one that causes drowsiness) to be eaten at night. Seriously? For what? The counter staff told me it would let me sleep better at night. And I was like WTF? I’m having duty the following day (which includes night obviously) and the doctor is giving me a medicine that may cause drowsiness?
So if I take the medicine and continued on with my duty, and in the middle of night while drowsy I fired a round and it killed someone, who’s going to be responsible? We all know the answer to that.
Apparently, being a doctor in the SAF means you don’t have to care for your patients. Because the Pledge of Allegiance supercedes the Hippocratic Oath.
And the SAF can actually wonder why we “”””chao keng””? It’s because of doctors like that who don’t care about their patients that’s why we have to feint illness to get the MC.
Think about it.
