COUNCIL CHRONICLE – After video surfaced on social media, a Los Gators ER was barred from duty. According to an El Camino Hospital spokesperson, the physician in question was suspended after a man accused her of having mocked his son during a medical examination. The boy was brought to the hospital after he experienced anxiety attacked during a basketball match.
Los Gatos ER Doc Told Boy That He’s the Least Sick Patient
On Monday, Donald Bardwell took Samuel, his son, to the El Camino Hospital’s emergency room. According to Samuel, his son experienced an anxiety attack while he was out playing basketball with his friends. The attack had been so intense that it left the boy unable to stand up.
Donald declared that Samuel was supposed to be consulted by the physician on call. Unfortunately for them, the ER doctor who showed up in the consultation room was Dr. Beth Keegstra.
Samuel’s dad recalls that the woman walked into the room carrying a big chip on her shoulder. Without introducing herself or familiarizing with the patient’s condition, the Los Gatos ER doc began ranting about Samuel, no being really sick.
More than that, Dr. Keegstra accused Samuel and his father of entering the examination room in order to obtain drugs. She told the boy that he’s the least sick patient in the room and that there were people dying there.
On more than one occasion, the Los Gatos ER doc ordered Samuel to get off the consultation table despite the boy telling her that he was unable to walk.
When Keegstra accused them of coming to the emergency room under pretenses, Donald took out his phone and began recording the conversation.
After the movie surfaced on the Internet, the Los Gatos ER doc was suspended.
