HCM CITY (VNS)  — The Ministry of Health on Tuesday commended the HCM City-based Tu Du Obstetrics Hospital for punishing a doctor for her angry attitude towards a patient, the first time such measures have been taken in Viet Nam.

Doctor Nguyen Thi Thanh Hang from the hospital's Prenatal Care Department was asked to make a report about being aggressive and unhealthy to a patient. She will not be eligible for her three month bonus and has been struck off the shortlist for the hospital's year-end awards.

The doctor may also be demoted or dismissed if she repeats her offence.. — VNS
