    Agreed but the ship's initial assessment/treatment may well be a life saver.
    Agreed. The function of the on board staff is to stabilise rather than provide long term care. I understand doctors on American ships have 24 hour access to advice from a US medical facility, so should be able to provide expert emergency care until the patient can be removed for his/her own good to a shore medical facility.
