There were a lot of sex abuse cases where doctors have been involved. Their victims are still struggling with the memories while some doctors returned to practice. They participated in some treatment progress, but the truth is that we can’t be sure that an abuse will not happen again.
The authorities should pay more attention because doctors who abused their patients are not reported to law. Most of then are treated as having mental issues and after a few weeks they can return to practice. What happens if a doctor who was released will be involved in a sex abuse again? All people are asking punishment for those who abuse a person, even if they are students or teachers. It seems that doctors get a special treatment and this is not the way things should be.
A victim of this abuse, who was drugged and raped by its psychiatrist, said that she does not think people change. Moreover, she said that it takes a lot of money and time to become a doctor, so they understand more the doctor than the victim.
It seems that in the United States it is not usual for a doctor who was accused of raping to come back at work after a treatment. There are people who say that all of us can get a second chance and a person is more than one of his actions. However, when you were involved in a sex abuse case, you can’t be sure that those doctors will not do that anymore.
There were some doctors who lose their licenses after they raped a patient. There were also some of them who did not return to their jobs because their patients would not trust them. Unfortunately, the authorities are not making anything for those who are returning to their job like nothing happened.
Think of this situation: you are a student and your teacher was involved in a sex abuse case. Will you trust him/her? A similar thing happens also with doctors. We do not say that they should be kept away from the hospitals. They might be really good at their job. However, there should be someone who watches them, especially after they are having the treatment.
What do you think? Are officials doing a mistake by letting these doctors return to their job?
