Goonrathi Rescue and Recovery Services.*
“Don’t worry, we’re here to help!”
We swear to fulfill, to the best of our ability and judgment, this covenant:
We will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those goons in whose steps we walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is ours with those who are to follow.
We will apply, for the benefit of the endangered, all measures that are required, avoiding those twin traps of over-treatment and therapeutic nihilism.
We will remember that there is art to rescue as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.
We will not be ashamed to say “we know not,” nor will we fail to call in our colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a victim’s recovery.
We will respect the privacy of our patients, for their problems are not disclosed to us that the world may know. Most especially must we tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given us to rescue a life, all thanks. But it may also be within our power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of our own frailty. Above all, We must not play at God.
We will remember that we do not rescue just a damaged ship, or a cancerous growth, but a human being, whose troubles may affect the person’s family and economic stability. our responsibility includes these related problems, if we are to care adequately for the pubbie.
We will prevent disease whenever we can, for prevention is preferable to cure.
We will remember that we remain members of SA, with special obligations to all our fellow goons, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm.
If we do not violate this oath, may we enjoy life and art, respected while we live and remembered with affection thereafter. May we always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of our calling and may we long experience the joy of rescuing those who seek our help.
Mercy of Lowtax upon you.
