Buri Ram: Dedicated teacher pays a fatal price

dedicated-teacher-dies-after-refusing-treatment | Bangkok Post: breakingnews

Dedicated teacher pays a fatal price A dedicated teacher has died after he refused further hospital treatment for his illness because he was worried his students would fall behind in their studies as the exams approached if he was not there to help them.

Pichai Phanjiriyakul, 54, a teacher at the Agricultural and Technology College in Buri Ram province, forced his doctor to sign his discharge papers so that he could return to classes and teach his students.

He was worried that his students would fall behind with the examinations approaching, according to his wife, Phosit Phanjiriyakul.

She told police her husband had been admitted to hospital several times for treatment for diabetes and heart disease.

On Feb 18, Pichai instructed his doctor to discharge him, a week after he was admitted, despite still being seriously ill and in need of medical attention.

“He would not take no for an answer,” his wife told police.

"The doctor warned him it would be dangerous for him to leave the hospital, but he insisted that his students needed him, especially during exam time.”

He refused to go home after being discharged fro hospital and requested a room at the teachers’ living quarters, because he was too sick to travel to and from home.

He was found dead on his bed in the teachers’ living quarters on Feb 19.

If only I worked alongside Thai teachers half as dedicated. It's a daily struggle putting up with laziness, platitudes and fake smiles.

Sounds like his illness also affected his judgement, noble as it was.
The Doc should not have discharged him in the first place.

Who knows what the real story could be? Maybe he was just stubborn and didn't think he really needed the treatment and didn't want to be at the hospital. I worked in Surin and whether the teachers taught or not didn't seem to make a difference to the students knowledge as the system has failed the students from daycare onward. The only exams teachers worry about generally are the exams that get sent to Bangkok. If their students do bad on those, the teachers and the school look bad. Nothing matters in school in terms of testing most of the time except for those exams. The Thai educational system needs a giant coffee tsunami enema.

Sad story, this is the end of the Thai school year, so he would not have had a chance to make it up later. More teachers with this dedication certainly would not do Thailand any harm. RIP Teacher, I hope your students appreciated your dedication.

Absent an inability to make an informed decision, we all have, or ought to have, the right to refuse treatment. No doubt sometimes it'll look like a daft decision but that's not for doctors, or anyone else, to try to second guess.

Somebody really needs to explain to Thais the link between diet (especially rice) and diabetes.

Very sad to see another needless loss of life, and especially someone who was making a contribution.

There are so many studies now linking white rice to type 2 diabetes that it is hard to ignore. Here's just one:

My Mrs is a Thai Chef trained at the Oriental Hotel. It has blown her mind, she herself has cut down cause I insist on POTATOES! As alah mc duff would say "god is good". ( her dad is a diabetic )

I have never taken to rice unless it is covered in something that has taste!
