Not The Best Bedside Manner


No, you didn’t say these things Dr. Lau, did you?

When asked by Patient A if the cramping she had experienced was normal, Dr. Lau said “I wouldn’t know, I’m not a woman.” [So I guess he would know if cramping is normal for insensitive, unprofessional clods?]

When asked by Patient A if the sex of the baby could be determined from the ultrasound, Dr. Lau said “I wouldn’t know, I’ve never been pregnant.”

Patient B said the only question Dr. Lau asked her was: “If she was pregnant, would she be keeping the baby?”

Oh, and Dr. Lau recorded that various tests had been performed on Patients A, B,C and D. Think they were done? Nope. And it turns out Patient A had chlamydia, which can cause eye infections and pneumonia in babies.

What do you think happened to Ontario, Canada Dr. Alvin Lau? He was suspended for a year. Just a bit light, I’d say. I’m sure Patients A, B, C and D would agree.
