Should instructors in the health professions be held accountable for life-and-death mistakes made by their students?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Wouldn't Be Any Teachers

    If you hold instructors in the health profession responsible for mistakes their students make then we'll simply end up having zero instructors. Teachers don't have control of their students outside the education realm, it seems really unfair to hold teachers accountable when they have no way to influence the actions of another person.

  • Instructors in the health professions

    Instructors in the health professions should not be held accountable for life-and-death mistakes made by their students. I don't think that they should be held forth for the actions of others. They are there to teach them and hope that they make the right choices in the long run not pay for every mistake they make.

  • No, unless negligence was involved.

    No, I don't believe instructors in the health profession should be held accountable for life-and-death mistakes made by their students. Instructors do their best to lecture and teach. It is then up to the individual students to study procedures and question anything they aren't sure of. Students spend a lot of time shadowing before they are allowed to treat a patient. If a mistake is made at that point, the instructor should not be held accountable.

  • Sometimes it happens.

    No, instructors in the health professions should not be held accountable for life and death mistakes made by their students, because there is no way that the professionals that oversee the students can be everywhere at once. Students should be held accountable if they are negligent, but they are learning, too.
