For much of my career, I worked in medical settings.  Every once in a while, I’d hear about a rogue doctor or nurse who got caught doing something that they should not have. These events rarely made headlines unless their actions were particularly heinous. I believe that the field of medicine is changing as “burn out” may be provoking many previously levelheaded medical people to lose control.  Unfortunately, often we, the patients can suffer. I opened one of my medical newsletters today to find this headline;
