" I *honestly* don't know how much is "human nature" (people
" not wanting to see their mistakes "highlighted" for all to
" see) and how much is fear of litigation (i.e. the *instruction*
" not to keep any records of these conversations).
" I suspect the latter (which is probably A Good Thing... since
" that CAN be changed -- whereas human nature is immutable!)

there's a lot of human nature in it too though.  one of my
great-uncles refused to join the ama when it was formed because he saw
it as a protective society aimed more at the betterment of the image
of medicine rather than the betterment of medicine itself.  helping
doctors defend against malpractice suits which might be justified [the
reputation of medicine at any cost] is what really got his back up.
