Medically caused illness: iatrogenic injury

iatrogenic /iat·ro·gen·ic/ (i-ă´tro-jen´ik) resulting from the activity of physicians; said of any adverse condition in a patient resulting from treatment by a physician or surgeon. (see more definitions here -- medical dictionary: iatrogenic harm) - When a doctor harms you there are the additional insults of not only having trusted but also having paid someone for the service of hurting you...this is how one is also re-traumatized, adding even more layers to the injury.
