He has a feeling and a feeling.

The tweet suggested giving doctors courses on how to deal professionally and humanely with patients.

Another agreed with him and wrote: (We are all corrupt…. I do not exclude anyone, even with impotent silence, corresponding to a little trick. Are they not sinful human beings like us! Are they not subject to reckoning and punishment like the rest of mankind).

A tweeter in the name of Abu Faisal rejected the generalization, and said: (There are errors by the auditors. This is possible, but the generalization is incorrect, and there are unfortunately some doctors, not all of whom do not deserve the word of a doctor from the way he treats and his style. Everyone is human and makes mistakes).

The doctor may cause a medical error, and the medical errors in Al-Deira are many of them, and no one will be held accountable. People’s bodies are the experiences of patients, they have Prime Time Zone who can protect them.

The last opinion agreed with her and wrote: (A hospital serving more than a million citizens and residents will surely have all these problems and attacks on the medical staff. Why not form a neutral committee of doctors to investigate the cause of the patient’s death until the truth is revealed to the family of the deceased patient).
