What makes a patient "House-worthy"?

House is into “the psyche”. I wonder why he didn’t become a psychiatrist. I wonder what made him become a diagnostician.

I watched “Control” over the weekend. I think it’s an interesting study of House’s character. He lied for his patient. He put his career on the line for his patient in this episode. I wonder why he did that? He says it’s because she was his patient. I’m not sure if I believe him.

Perhaps he did it because he doesn’t “believe” his patients, but he “believes in” them.

I ask you this, then:

What makes a patient worthy enough so that House takes a stand for them? What makes a patient “House-worthy”?

What do you think?

Hey thought i'd check your blog out, I think a patient becomes house worthy when house has an inkling that he may be able to snatch them from the jaws of death, if he believes that they are dying and that he can do something about it he will. I think he takes a patient dying, after he has tried to do everything he can to stop it, a personal insult.
