    Hi. I am just writing from iran to inform you that nobody cares here about an injured person lying on the street after a typical car/bike crash. today I was coming back home from work when I saw a 70 year old woman crowded around by lots of bystanders and three police officers in the street. the driver who had hit her was also there. the sun was in full shine and no doctors were present at the scene yet. they were all waiting for the ambulance to arrive. nobody cared to get her on to their car for a possibly quicker and earlier outreach to the hospital. the police didn’t care either. the woman as i approached was still breathing but was unconscious (as if she was sleeping, yet clearly breathing regularly) and the nose had already bled but not all over the face (now the blood was dried) and no bleeding was visible around the mouth nor around the forehead. the pulse was normal as i checked it on her wrist and she was just lying there on the street with all the dresses she wore. I rushed into a nearby medical clinic (a small one) and asked the doctor to come over. she refused: “no, i won’t be able to help. this would have consequences for me”!!!!! i got upset and back to the scene where nothing was changed since my last visit in half an hour. my question please: i am so disappointed with such social system and would like to ask you pls if the police and the doctor were right not to make a hurry/ help? could it cause any liabilities, especially for the doctor, if she helped? please tell me if my own behavior or tendency (the way i see and treat such situations) is wrong and potentially dangerous. Maybe I am too hysterical and the way i look at the situation is wrong. were I in their shoes, I would examine her vital signs first, would decide if it was right to move her/ inject her with some helpful factors, then I would get her as soon and quickly as possible on a car ( my own car, upon the permission of the police force) then i would drive fast towards the nearest facility, then i would get in either to give my own blood or to help nurses find a blood donor. PLEASE let me know what was/ is the right attitude to tackle such scenes by the traffic accidents. I was just thinking about her and her loved ones. I am so sad and I am sure this sadness won’t help her anymore
