I raise this point in light of our present-day, horrifying statistics of "iatrogenesis" ending in fatality: every year, several hundred thousand unnecessary hospital deaths--due to medical negligence or errors. Is there a clarion-call of emergency, an immediate effort to solve this terrible problem? Or, do most doctors, as in Semmelweiss's day, prevail in their complacency and indifference?
Now we tend to just look for another pill or shot before a clear picture develops. Communication is a second important part of healing as his story shows.
