A doctor in Henan got caught on video trying pull the old smoke and scan, holding on to his cig while examining his patient.
The video showing the doctor’s unhealthy medical multitasking went viral earlier this week, raising more alarms about the quality of China’s health services.
In response, the Maji city hospital has fined the doctor 2,000 yuan and suspended him from work for a week, Xinhua reports. That’ll show him!
In the past Chinese surgeons have generated controversy by snapping pics in the operating room, while nurses have been blasted for dancing on the job.
Though, perhaps this doctor could argue that he needs to smoke in order to calm his nerves, at the prospect of being attacked or set ablaze by vengeful family members of patients.
