Practising defensive medicine may save your butt, but it will not make you a good physician and you will end up ordering a lot of unnecessary tests and create waste in the system.
That's what they teach in medical school of course. And the administrators and politicians love to have cost savings.

But really there is no medal for saving cost.

And when it comes to a medicolegal case you are on your own.

Everything is fine until you face one.

Saving one's butt is important. If you don't believe me you can go ask Dr Lim Lian Arn.
