It could take days, if not weeks, to learn that info, if ever. The media is not going to hold a story
I am not suggesting that they hold a story. I am suggesting that some degree of oversight is given to the content presented as fact in the story they do run.
When I see a patient with apparent TB I put them in resp isolation, start meds, and run labs all while I wait on the fungal lung culture to tell me they truly have TB. Waiting to intervene is not an option. However, recklessly diagnosing TB for every cough would increase costs and patient risks. Run the story just make every effort to do so correctly. Then stand by that story and be accountable for your actions, just as I have to be with my patients.
It is not a novel concept.
one small group's demands for extra info.
Is only one group interested in the truth? I have always felt at least a portion of those with differing opinions were simply ignorant and holding on to incorrect information as truths. Hopefully it is not a universal acknowledgment of deceit or a purposeful avoidance of the truth.
And to clarify, each of the line items I suggested had the option of entering and answer of unknown. Thus, this is not merely a request for more information but a suggestion to reduce the misinformation. If done correctly, I would predict that there would be a total decrease in given information concerning individual events.
