A tourist who went to the ER department of Bang Lamung Hospital this morning was allegedly refused treatment and told to “come back when you’re dying”.
Furious girlfriend Pornthida Thundee, 25, from Surin, turned to reporters at PattayaupdateNews after she said that she took 28 year old Iranian tourist Mohammad Hassan Forghani to the emergency room.
Pornthida said that they registered and waited for over an hour to see the doctor who then allegedly said:
“Is he dying?……this is ER unless he is dying don’t bother coming”.
Then sarcastically the doctor is alleged to have said that they should Google ER to find out what an emergency room is for.
Pornthida then claimed he was refused treatment though the hospital said he could come back later according to the news report.
“Are these the ethics of a Thai doctor?,” asked an agitated Pornthida who took her boyfriend to another hospital where he was seen.
The Iranian confirmed himself on video that he was asked to come back “after you die”.
Though not mentioned in the news report Pornthida said in the video that the doctor at the center of the controversy was male and was a “katoey” or lady boy.
PattayupdateNews said that the doctor concerned had gone home and there was no one else available for comment to give the hospital’s side of events.
