Medicolegal and Ethics wat to do??

Doctor A is aware that doctor B has made a serious mistake in treating a very ill hospitalized patient. Most appropriately, Doctor A should:

(A) talk to Doctor B about his lapse
(B) report Doctor B's action to Dr. B's superior at the hospital.

really B? yeah patient's betterment is the first pripority. but if u tell the Dr yrself wont he sort it out too and hence that can benefit the patient too. so if we made a mistake in the future and we didnt know, we'd have to wait till our superior finds out and then be stressed out with the bad reputation now?.. sounds brutal.

no way,,,it's definitely A . .
you need to talk to doctor,,,and i think,if he is still on mistake,you can't go to his superiors,it's against professional conduct .. .Patient's health is doctor A's responsibility, not doc B's . . .
