Description

Excerpt from Physicians' and Dentists' Directory of the New England States: Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut Sect. 5. A physician ought not to abandon a patient because the case is deemed incurable; for his attendance may continue to be highly useful to the patient, and comforting to the relatives around him, even in the last period of fatal malady, by alleviating pain and other symptoms, and by soothing mental anguish. To decline attend: ance under such circumstances would be sacrificing to fanciful deli cacy and mistaken liberality that moral duty which is independent of and far superior to all pecuniary consideration. Sect. 6. Consultation should be promoted in difficult or protracted cases, as they give rise to confidence, energy, and more enlarged views in practice. Sect. 7. The opportunity which a physician not unfrequently eh joys of promoting and strengthening the good resolutions of his patients, suffering under the circumstances of vicious conduct, ought never to be neglected. His counsels, or even remonstrances, will give satisfaction, not offense, if they be proffered with politeness, and evince a genuine love of virtue, accompanied by a sincere interest in the welfare of the person to whom they are addressed.
