Chiang Rai doctor suspended over ‘stupid’ argument

A video clip circulating on social media exhibits the physician sitting cross-legged on a chair while fiddling together with her cell phone. She seems to call the patient and her relatives, ngo (stupid) as the 2 sides trade insults.
The 36 year outdated affected person, who’s 12 weeks pregnant, got here to the hospital for therapy for morning illness after experiencing nausea and problem consuming. She complained of feeling exhausted and having stomach pains. In the emergency room, the physician attempted to manage an injection, however the affected person refused, claiming to be allergic to the drug in query, and demanded intravenous fluid instead.
The doctor denied her request and a heated argument broke out between the two sides.
The Medical Council of Thailand (MCT) has been in contact with the hospital and can lead the inquiry.
