Unprofessional health professionals

Which is worse? Having a can of cologne spray stucked in your anus or this team of “professional” health workers work on you and be their laughingstock? I stumbled upon this story on PEx. It may seem like a story straight out of a supermarket tabloid, but as they say the proof is in the video.

Surgery spectacle

A 39-year-old homosexual is planning to sue a medical team after he saw in a cellular phone of a friend last Friday a circulated video footage of the operation to extract a perfume canister stuck in his anus during a sexual act.

The man’s identity and face was not shown on the video. However, he was made fun of by the persons he trusted to operate on him. What kind of professionals are they?

Filipino health professionals have been known worldwide for the quality of their work, their dedication to their jobs and their sincerity to the people they serve. There are a few who gives a bad name to these professionals.

I also had experienced something a little negative that happened April of last year when my son and I were vacationing. Long story… but two of the nurses I met were rude.

    I think joking about the patient is ok when it is to lighten the mood and make things easier, but judging the patient is one of the main reasons most people who have something stuck in their butt lie.

    It is a shame that their embarrassment is justified. Doctors – whatever race – should make the patient feel at ease, both physically and mentally.

    I had an ultrasound in a private hospital in Manila, the doctor that was handling the ultrasound and the nurse she was working with was chatting the whole time. They never said hi or hello and just poked me while talking to another person. I really thought it was very rude. Doctors here would walk you through things like that and give you their full attention. I was really annoyed after that

    @AzureWolf — if you have seen the video, it’s really awful the way the doctors reacted… laughing and cheering and they even sprayed the can after taking it out

    @haydee — how rude! in my case, i was talking to the nurse and she was texting on her cellphone… didn’t even bother to excuse herself or put the phone for a second… the other one banged the folder on the desk to get my attention (while i was talking to my mom on the phone)
