While I'm no medical expert, speaking for myself (and other instructors maybe?) I think it's safe to say in a lot of cases we develop a sort of radar for this kind of stuff. Yes that can be a dangerous mindset to have, with serious ramifications, but at the same time as a parent yourself I know you can tell when your kids are bullshitting you, yes? Not to suggest recruits/students are kids but I've seen some seriously similar behavior.
Very common to see recruits too injured for PT miraculous healing after hours.
There's a chance this policy does more harm than good but I'm of the belief that this policy does the opposite.
Oh, absolutely. I agree. I’m not discounting your/an instructor’s experiences of things either. There were definitely some doozies in my time there (ie. one example is recruit confined to wheelchair during week then practically dancing on tables on the weekends) And of course, those cases make it even worse for those who are legitimately injured when it comes to not only speaking with course staff, but interacting with MIR staff also.
And of course, animosity quickly sets in among the recruits when there are those legitimately dealing with a significant medical issue vice those who...Well...aren’t.
