Can you think of anything worse than finding out that you’ve consulted and used, or been thinking of consulting and using, a surgeon, a spine surgeon no less, who, the authorities have decided, on the basis of how he’s looked after two of his patients, one of whom has died, needs to go back to Med School again and learn about “The care of the critically ill surgical patient?”
AND, AND, the authorities have had the information on his treatment of those two patients for almost 5 years before the Media Release.
It amounts to, “There there children! Don’t fret. Dr Ghabrial wasn’t “struck off” was he – he couldn’t have been that bad. And, as for the 5 year delay, all the rules, which we think are perfect, were followed. So God’s in his heaven and all’s well with the world.”
What can we say?
We don’t think Dr Ghabrial passes the “squeaky clean” test, do you?
