It all depends on the specific situation, on what the problem is. For in some cases it is worth insisting, in others it is not worth it .
If there is a suspicion that this is some kind of serious heart problem or something else clearly life-threatening, then you need to insist, until the problems become irreversible.
If the problem is not worth it (for example, he just has a headache due to a change in the weather), then there is no need to drip onto a person's brains, worsening his already bad condition. In such cases, a person must decide for himself whether he should go to the doctor or not.
And one more extremely important point. In times of epidemics of influenza and other types of acute respiratory viral infections, the polyclinic (and the hospital) is the first place where you can catch the infection. Nowadays, when the coronavirus is all the more so.
Therefore, in the current situation, this factor cannot be ignored when making a decision.
I have a very difficult situation, my mother is sick, she has a huge swelling, mastopathy, a sore throat, her hair fell out, her ankles were swollen and swollen
What to do, she is afraid doctors are afraid to go
Life itself cannot be in the hands of a person, since a person has no power over death, and therefore over life, he can only change his way of life.
When refusing treatment, there can be two reasons, fear and ego, although they are almost the same thing. It is desirable to save the life of a living,
First, you need to determine if this person is dangerous to others? If yes, then treat, in the absence of consent, forcibly including. A person has no right to dispose of other people's lives, regardless of any arguments (even if he thinks that a small binge for a month and drunken fights is normal, even if a couple of pseudoscientists firmly convinced him that the HIV virus does not exist, even if you think about it, and almost kill a wife does not count in the heat of a quarrel). There is no need to wait for a miracle or precedent. Treat immediately, in some cases - isolate.
For lovers of self-destruction, compulsory treatment is also quite acceptable. The methods are softer, but the essence is the same - letting a person die in peace, inactive is possible only in two cases. The first is that the person cannot be helped, the disease will not recede, and the treatment in the best outcome will end in torment until the end of his days (hello, euthanasia!). The second - on a person, in general, do not give a shit, I am not Mother Teresa and not God, natural selection should somehow work.
