How to save a life?

In my last round on my patients, they TVs are tuned into the blow-by-blow coverage of the hostage taking drama in Manila. They were all agitated watching the horrific standoff scenes making their blood pressure shoot up. I was anxious to know the complete details of the said drama as I only got pieces of the news when I get into my patient’s room to check on them.
When I got home, I also felt agitated by how the Manila police and SWAT have acted on the matter. It was a major blunder. I am not a negotiator but it does not take a genius to figure out what went wrong.
So many precious lives were taken due to senseless actions.
