GPs are right to be cautious about appraisal reflections


Dr Cusack, Please let us know the mistakes that Dr BG admitted to making. I, for one, and many others cannot see what they were. Every paper states the same thing. What mistakes, please ? From my perspective, if the blood tests were so obvious, why did the Consultant not spot it immediately? Was poor Jack getting better or not? I read he was bouncing about at 1630. Was he ? Whose decision to transfer Jack to another ward? And why? Was he much better? If he was well enough for transfer, was it quite simply the ACEI that caused catastrophic hypotension ? How can we say it was not so certainly? Every doctor whose has read these articles in the papers think it was the ACEI that killed an improving child. So please tell us the mistakes in the context of her work in 2011.
