  • Can a patient treat themselves? (treatment for dislocated finger)

    moved to the malprcatice forum.
    thanks




    from my other post about visiting a hand doctor (so please don't flame if in wrong forum)

    where : Dallas, tx USA.

    I received treatment for my dislocated finger. This involved using (1) a laser powered device and (2) infra red device to help loosen the tissue around the dislocation etc. The doctor had staff issues and a fairly busy practice.

    On at least 5 separate occasions that I recall I was handed the equipment and asked to continue the treatment myself. The assistant went off to see other people. I was left unsupervised.

    I doubt if I suffered any harm and I'm not looking for that (unless advised otherwise). However, is there a case to report this to any medical institution?

    Thank you.

    You could reort it the state medical licensing board and see what they have to say as a first step. It does sound a bit odd.
